Ok guys. I'll be in Brazil for one month and a day. I'll be in Porto Alegre for 3 weeks and Rio the rest of the time.

Nothing is guaranteed in life and I don't want to miss out in the Motherland of Bjj. Are there any Must Visit places that you have visited or trained at?

Mods please don't move this. I would much rather have the advice from the jiujitsu community on this one. Phone Post 3.0

Enjoy man, Rio is awesome. I trained at De La Riva's when I was there and only have the best things to say about his school. Great guys. I think ConnectionRio did a video about places to train in Rio, check that out if you can.

I've trained in brazil as purple and brown. belt colours are more or less the same the world over but people sandbag at all belts too so it depends on who you're training with. i've had easier rolls with some browns than I have with some blues.

Went as brown and all was good. Rolling with the competition brown belts was a different story though. Same with rolling with the old gray belts ... that's just humbling.
