Brazilian Black Belt BJJ CAMP 2019 is back in Europe 

for the first time to Italy, in the amazing Island of Sicily.

Brazilian Black Belt BJJ CAMP 2019 is back in Europe

Since 2004, when we were pioneers on the BJJ CAMP concept, where we did several CAMPs in the state Rio de Janeiro, we have been innovating, but keeping what we consider the most important aspect of this life time trip, which is creating a bound and making friends for a life time, in an amazing place, while doing our passion, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. 

After Rio we have been to other continent as well. 

This year we are going for the first time to Italy, in the amazing Island of Sicily. 

BJJ CAMP 2019 Italy Sicily


To keep the exclusive concept and make sure everyone will get full attention during classes and stay together on the outside activities we have limited to ONLY 16 students on the mat. The spots will sell quickly, so if you want to make a reservation, make sure to contact us right now at or via WhatsApp +55 21 99404-4567.

Once again, this CAMP will have  10 days. For the first time we will open space for those who can only come 5 days, but we will give preference for the ones who want to sign up for the total of 10 days. 


10 days- US$1140,00

5 days- US$740

(the ones who choose 5 days will have to arrive on first day of the CAMP, we will only open the option to stay the second half, once we full fill the first half. It's also important to have in mind that, as said above, the preference will be for the ones who want to register for the entire camp)


Due to characteristics of the location, at this Camp, the price does not include the hotel and food as we normally do in all our Brazilian Black Belt CAMPs, the price only include the training sessions (2 classes per day, that we may combined as a longer one, to leave space for outside activities), but we will make sure to recommend and assist you to find option where to stay, so you can choose a location that fits your pocket, transfer from hotel to the city etc.

We will keep the most important values of our Camps, which is the relationships we build with the students and that includes spending time and doing activities together.


Remember that the Brazilian Black Belt CAMP is very exclusive, we will only allow 16 students to sign up.


Rodrigo Comprido and Felipe Costa will make sure you get a complete understanding of all the concept and techniques they explain. They also make sure to roll with the students and criticize their game and point out details that will help you reach a new level. 


Around half way during the camp, we take a day off, with only open mat, so the group can make activities together. The other days, as said, there are 2 classes.

We will be giving FULL-TIME attention during the classes, not only teaching but also rolling while correcting the mistakes. This will allow us to address everyone's BJJ needs with 100% satisfaction.

Both Comprido and Felipe will roll everyday, so chances are that you will roll with him everyday or at least a lot.
