The TrainBJJinRio team is made up of long-term residents of Rio de Janeiro. We are writers, photographers and film makers, and we are ALL jiu-jitsu practitioners. We’ve drawn upon our years of experience of everything this city has to offer to bring you this guide.
We believe everybody who practises BJJ should visit Rio to train jiu-jitsu at least once, and we want to help people achieve this dream by lifting the lid on what life (and jiu-jitsu) is really like here.
Our goal is to build a community of people made up of prospective visitors, people who have already been to Rio and even jiu-jitsu practitioners here right now!
By pooling our knowledge and creating a place where we can ask questions, share stories and advice and even arrange get-togethers and events, we can create the best possible environment for people from all over the world to come together to train BJJ in Rio.
Our newsletter will have regular tips and advice not featured on the site, so make sure to sign up for that today!
