Connection Rio Jiu-Jitsu Academy is your connection to the heart of BJJ’s motherland Rio de Janeiro Brazil. CR BJJ founder, 3rd degree black belt (graduated by world champion, master of the ‘Half Guard’ Roberto Correa de Lima) Dennis Asche invested more than twelve years of his life living and training Jiu-Jitsu on Brazilian soil. In Rio de Janeiro professor Asche developed his BJJ through training with innumerous world champions, masters of the arte suave and teaching literally thousands of jiujiteiros from around the world. The experience that has been accumulated over a decade in Brazil has been brought back to Bend, Oregon and is now being passed on to our students at CRA.
