Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Box, Judo and Jiu-Jitsu for kids


We were elected the best academy for foreigners in Rio, by the visitors themselves.

We get together every day to help people improve and enjoy themselves while forgetting about their daily problems. At our academy, we not only offer training classes of Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai or Box, we offer a place where you can meet new people and spend quality time in a friendly environment. In other words, we offer our members the chance to train with family! Because that is what we build every day, a big happy family!


Why training with us?

If the name Felipe Costa does not ring any bells….then perhaps the fact that he is a two-time Jiu Jitsu World Champion and a highly qualified teacher with great human skills and a well-known online training programs might do the deal!
Furthermore, Felipe is backed up by a group of experienced and highly trained teachers of all specialties (Muay Thai, Box, Kick Boxing, Judo and Jiu Jitsu) with reliable backgrounds and excellent teaching techniques that adapt to any type of student, so it doesn’t matter how old you are or how serious you want to take your training, your teacher will always be there for you! But you may think – well, Rio is a very hot and humid city, what happens during those really hot summer days? And the answer is –we train anyway and we encourage you to do so since we can offer facilities with air conditioning and supplies for quality rehydration inside the academy.



We offer a wide range of hours for every activity we have here at our academy, starting off on Monday morning 7 am when we meet to begin the week with BJJ classes. Then we continue the early work out with some boxing classes until midday. In the afternoon, we start classes from 4 pm onwards until 10 pm at night… and the best news is that you can pay one fee to enter all classes!
