Join us at Connection Rio Jiu-Jitsu Academy for:

No-Gi BJJ: This program is all about real-world defense skills without the grip and leverage provided by a Gi. Our No-Gi classes are a great compliment to our Gi BJJ classes. It is suitable for all levels, from beginner to advanced, for recreational, fitness, and competitive athletes. 

All Levels Gi BJJ: All Levels BJJ is suitable for all levels, ages, and body types. This class consists of warm ups using fundamental drills, throws, and takedowns. The technical portion is programmed to combine this weeks structured curriculum with those of last week and the week to follow, allowing for a more proficient construction of a complete Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, functional in a variety of situations. All levels class is beneficial to students training for fitness, competition and includes the benefits of complete Martial Arts.

Technique Only BJJ: The technique and drilling class is recommended for all students of all levels, ages, and body types, especially those who are brand new to the martial art. In this class, students attend to learn fundamentals and techniques. For the beginners to the sport, they will practice and drill fundamental movements. For the more advanced students, they will practice and drill the current weeks structured curriculum. There is no “free training” or sparring during this session. This class is ideal for those wanting to work on their technique and skills without the intensity that can come with sparring.

Competition BJJ: This class is dedicated to competition training and ‘free training’ or sparring. It is a structured class where drills and rounds are marked with a set start and end time (unlike open mat). For our active competitors, class is structured specifically for conditioning and rounds will begin starting from the feet, replicating the competition setting and environment. For our non-competitors, this class is structured to work on the techniques learned in the previous class with positional sparring and all techniques during free training rounds.
