BJJ Training Camps

Training Camps are a great way to improve yourself in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!

When you immerse in our intensive but not exhausting training routine, you leave behind issues that distract you from your goals. We guarantee you will come back, because that is what happens since our first camp in Italy in 2009.

With the experience of 10 Summer Camps in Italy, 7 in Poland (plus one during Winter!) and 5 in South Africa, we know we deliver: quality grappling experience, fun and learning environment, and great camaraderie among all participants and instructors!

People from different countries, cultures and backgrounds, sharing the love of the gentle art, a remarkable experience to renew your drive for the new season ahead.

What set us apart is the structure of our classes. We work effectively the basics of the ground game,  with great attention to detail,  explaining concepts and showing techniques that work for beginners and experts, drilling them in speed and exploring variations to later work on situation sparring.

Our instructors speaks many languages, so nobody is left behind!

Our Summer Camps in Poland and Italy are held in August, and in South Africa in November.

In our camps, we welcome all grapplers, regardless of experience, club affiliation, fitness levels, sex, age or background. We are committed to quality and you can expect the best hospitality from our coaches and staff.

Training Camps 2018

2017 is almost history as I write these lines. With 2 weeks left to the end of the year, our eyes naturally look into the new year ahead. Our team has made great progress this season, and that reflected in all camps growth.

Our weeks together in Poland and Italy worked like magic, lots more people from different clubs training together and enjoying the Camp experience, With a very positive feedback from everyone, not much will change for 2018. Dates will be kept similar and we decided to keep both events in the same places.

Our second Training Camp in Cape Town had twice as more people than in 2016, and we expect this trend to keep going. In 2018 new classes will be added and a new location for the Sunday Gradings as well as a big barbecue is in the plans (Vegans are welcome too)!

We also tried a shorter camp format in South Africa. A weekend in Nelspruit, which is an amazing location near the Kruger Park, the biggest natural reserve of Southern Africa. Three days in an lodge by the river gives a chance to absorb nature’s energy, practice our art and unwind from life’s problems. We loved the place and the participants seemed enthusiastic to come back next year, so this event is confirmed for 2018, with final dates to be released soon.

So that’s the plan for 2018:

VII Summer Camp Poland in Borowice, from 30th of July to 5th of August (FaceBook event)

X Summer Camp Italy in Cesenatico, from 21st to 26th of August (FaceBook event)

III Spring Camp South Africa in Cape Town (early November, dates to be released)

II Weekend Training Camp in Nelspruit (mid to late November, dates to be released)

2016

Each new year we try to improve our Camps, learning from our successes and shortcomings, and we are glad to announce great surprises for this year.

We will meet again in Borowice, Poland for the fifth year and this time we will add a night, starting the camp on the Sunday evening, to accommodate requests from foreigners and people travelling long hours. Dates are set for 31/07 to 07/08.

In Italy we had to change locations a few times in the past 3 years, but not anymore. We felt great last year at the EuroCamp and they will provide us a bigger place to train. Also we will have a special black belt guest. Dates are set for 23/08 to 28/08.

Now the big news is that we are having a Summer Camp in December. Yes, it will be summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and we will travel to Cape Town, South Africa to have our first ever Camp in one of the most beautiful sceneries one can wish for. Dates are not confirmed yet, so stay tuned!

After doing such a good HL Video for our Camp in Poland, we decided to try again in Italy. I really liked the outcome! Edited by Max de Michelis. The song is a rap from Rio written and sung by Alexandre Oliveira, a friend of mine and BJJ practitioner. Check the footage from our trainings in Comacchio, filmed with a GoPro 3:

2014 Rio Grappling Camps

Every year we aim to improve our experience together. For 2014 we decided to move back our VI Rio Grappling Summer Camp Italy to the seashore, close to where it started in 2009.

The III Rio Grappling Camp Poland, already a success with 84 people attending last year, will remain in Borowice and we will invite other black belts to keep track of so many students. We will have 6 to 8 coaches in every session to make sure all students get the best of their time with us.

The II Camp in Sardinia will aim for white and blue belts, a big return to basic drills and techniques that will help develop the sport in the Island since most of the guests at this camp last year were locals, and we will focus on their needs, evidently doing our best to ensure that advanced grapplers are not only welcome but will also enjoy the experience fully.
