What you'll do

Rio natives love Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ), and I’m excited to show you why. I’ll teach you how to practice it as a form of self-defense and use it as a tool for self-evolution. I’ll also show you how to combine it with meditation and yoga to maximize the effect. After the training, we’ll visit the beautiful waterfall near my house for a truly authentic encounter.
