    My Professor (Mauricio Zingano) used to be a gate keeper for the GC when he was in Brazil. Said there were lots of people that would walk in off the street and basically do what you said.

    He has more than a few interesting stories about just how badly these people were beaten up/humiliated.

    Hey OP, I'm also going to be in Rio about that time and I going to train as well while I'm there. I've better writing to different schools there, but I would like to train at Gracie Barra under Marcio Feitosa but they don't even have a working email address much less a web site. So keep me informed of what you find out and let me know when you're going and maybe I'll see you down there.

    I believe Marcio Feitosa is teaching at Gracie Barra America

    Not according to the Gracie Barra website, but it's very possible that that is out of date.

The Fuji Fighterzone gi comes with the patches already sewn on. You can order one here https://www.hatashitasports.com/prod...&CategoryID=34
    This is true, although it's a bit tongue-in-cheek. When training there the first time, Royler also paired me up with one of his best BB's who proceeded to put me to sleep. It was fine after that! The class was techical, balanced, and relaxed. Just go and introduce yourself, he's a friendly guy.

    Barra's a bit quieter now Carlinhos etc. have gone to the US, and Gordo's started his own club. I think the Barra Rags BJJ shop's closed down now too.

    Thanks for the confirmation. I've never been to Rio, but from my limited experience with Royler, he's very approachable and quite funny. Hope you get to go, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I know I would!

    Also just out of curiosity are private lessons available from Royler? On the off chance that I'm flush when I go, I wouldn't mind splurging.
    I´ve visited the Humaita four weeks ago. I just went to the school and asked whether I could join the training. All people there were really nice and friendly. In the evening Rolker was in and I joined the class (which was not so funny because I was the only white belt among 7 blackbelts and several brown belts). Nevertheless it was a great experience to visit "mecca" once.

    It is true that they only allow blue and white gis. And it is better to bring a gi from home since I found it surprisingly difficult to find a good gi at a decent price in Rio. I ended up borrowing a gi from Rolker because of that.

    Royler offers private lessons.

    There is also a school in Centro where Rolker teaches. Depending on where you will be staying this might be the better option. Going to Humaita from Copacabana by bus is quite a pain, walking is about 20 min. (but you wouldnt want that after dark). Cab ride is about 15 - 20 R$. To centro on the other hand, there is a metro going directly from Copa.

    Have fun.
