It is a great chance to test your skills before the upcoming tournaments in Europe.

    Risks: All participants must sign-in a waiver (only in German language available) for the complete camp-training time. Please make sure to have enough travel and health coverage by your insurance company.

Senior members who visit us regularly may also get the permission to sleep-over at the club. See our accommodation`s information for more details.

    Themes: Please keep in mind, that this is a PURE BJJ training camp. We are covering all aspects, including self-defense, ground grappling with and without the Gi, and the teaching method used at Academy (for affiliated trainers only). Dress code: Gi at all times; during our no-Gi class you must wear the Gi pants and a clean t-shirt, no topless and shorts!
