Yep, Connection Rio guests train BJJ in Rio for FREE. We offer 3 classes a week to all Connection Rio guests at no extra charge.
Classes are every Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons and are taught by BJJ black belt Dennis Asche. The classes bring together the guests from all Connection Rio properties, enabling people of all belt levels and from different teams to train together and exchange techniques and ideas in a friendly and cooperative environment.
Dennis’s classes contain plenty of technique yet also a strong focus on drilling (something not so many Brazilian teachers focus on). They are held at Gordo BJJ, which is only a 60 secs walk away from the HQ and Premier houses.
People work at their own level but these classes are great if you need to prepare for a competition and a number of visiting and resident athletes are currently getting ready for upcoming competitions such as the Rio Open and the Copa Carlson Gracie.
