"Fantastic experience "

I really enjoyed my stay as it was in a local neighbourhood that is safe, quiet and clean with friendly locals and a lots of shops, cafes and excellent places to eat within walking distance. The beach closest to the accommodation was actually my most favourite beach out of all beaches I visited. Rodrigo is an excellent host whose recommendations for Food and things to do where excellent suggestions. The training at GB Campeche was also a great time with excellent instruction from Professor Leandro and well as the other instructors and lots of fun and challenging rolls to be had from my new Brazilian friends! I stayed for 16 days and wish I would have booked a month. I look forward to coming back there to visit Florianopolis 🤙

"2 week stay at Florianopolis"

First, as 2 year bjj practitioner, the quality of the training and classes at the bjj Gracie Barra Campeche gym was excellent. I learned a lot especially during the privates with the head coach Leandro. The group classes were very informative and the level was very good. I was very happy with my bjj experience at the gym and would highly recommend it.

As for the accommodations, as per other reviews the apartment is simple but it has everything you need to cook and have a comfortable stay. For me it was perfect and didn't need anything more (except maybe a can opener ;) The place was clean and if there was an issue Rodrigo the host would fix it. Rodrigo is a very responsive and warm host who checks in on you during your stay which is appreciated. As a woman travelling alone, I felt safe in the apartment and location.

The location is really beautiful. It is very close to the beach and to a grocery store. You will be surrounded by beautiful nature and lots of birds. There are a lot things to see on the island and I wish I had a bit more time to explore.

I recently spent a month doing BJJ in Campeche and had a fantastic time. The camp is called Gracie Barra Campeche, a welcoming school with a very friendly vibe. Although this information wasn't provided on the book martial arts page, I can see why they might want to keep it hidden to prevent people from contacting the school directly and finding their own accommodation. Overall, I had a great experience training with talented instructors and meeting new people in a supportive environment.

YOU WILL NEED A VEHICLE TO GET FROM THE ACCOMMODATION TO THE BJJ GYM

"Fantastic Introduction to BJJ in a Beautiful Location"

Great hospitality, location of housing, proximity to beach, easy access to restaurants, welcoming classes and teachers, availability of classes, and value of investment!

"The. Best. Experience!"

This is an amazing opportunity to immerse oneself into a wonderful BJJ community with high level instruction! Floripa and the neighborhood of Campeche specifically are beautiful with easy access to beaches, hiking, surfing, and good food. The accommodation is quiet and perfect in a residential area and transporting yourself is easy via uber, provided bicycle, Brazilian friends, or walking! You will learn so much, laugh a lot, and enjoy life... book for longer than a week if possible. :)

Really enjoyed my stay at the bjj camp.

The property itself is really nice, close to a patrolled beach and a short bike ride to the gym and plenty of nice spots to eat just around the corner.

Not having done any previous training in jujitsu before I didn’t know what to expect at the gym but Rodrego, Leandro and everyone else were so friendly and welcoming I quickly adapted. Strong family vibes and I’m stoked to have been apart of it.

"Best place to try out"

The complete vibe of the area and all staff/team was amazing. My first time in Brazil and what a place to go.

The staff and people in the gym were so nice and welcoming, the training was explained in English when required and the one to one classes were very helpful

"Unforgettable BJJ and Floripa experience"

Location:

The accommodation is located in Rio Tavares, a cozy place next to Campeche. I stayed in a small apartment with terrace and cooking space. The house has 2 floors, 2 apartments and a patio with parking. Amazing beach and sand dunes are only 5 walking minutes away. There are no hotels around, so it's not overcrowded.

Training ground:

BJJ dojo is located few minutes away by car or bike. Keep in mind - this is not a camp but a regular dojo. You can train multiple times a day (except Sat with open mat only and on Sun the dojo is closed) and it's suitable for all levels.

People:

All the trainers from whom I had the pleasure to learn have a high degree of expertise and are also very nice people. Not everyone, but the majority of the trainers speaks English. However you start understanding quickly the key words and the trainers as well as other students make sure that you understand properly what to do. Within the group the atmosphere is also great and sometimes something like a BBQ, beers or other events take place. The host of the flat (Rodrigo) is a cool and very kind guy, who cares about your wellbeing during the stay and is a great BJJ and surfing enthusiast.

Area:

Rio Tavares is a nice place It's located centrally and you can reach all areas of the island easily by car (if there is no traffic jam). In general Floripa is just beautiful - full of beaches, hiking trails, good restaurants and it's very safe.

I enjoyed Floripa, BJJ and very nice people!

"The perfect stay & Amazing jiu jitsu"

Rodrigo was an amazing an responsive host. Easy to stay in touch with and provided great suggestions for my stay in Floripa. The home was clean and located right by a beautiful beach with breathtaking views

About Jiu Jitsu, I had high expectations coming in and it honestly exceeded anything I could've imagined. Day 1 training had 8 black belts, 5 purple, 3 blue and 4 white. The instructor, The skill level, the detail, the team was like no other. Very welcoming environment with the perfect intensity to up your game.

Best trip by far, I would recommend this to everyone.

"Everything I was looking for "

Rodrigo is an excellent, thoughtful host and very competent in bjj. You have the option to learn from him or Xandao and you can’t go wrong with either of them. You can really make what you want of your bjj experience, attending as many or as few classes as you like. I enjoyed getting to know everyone and would definitely repeat.

"A perfect place for BJJ"

Everything was perfect. The location was very well located. Near to the beautiful beach, near to the stores and bars if you like to go out. The training was fantastic and an absolute highlight of my martial arts training in the last years. But the most remarkable thing has been the friendliness of all people. I arrived as a guest and left as a friend.
