Romero 'Jacare' Cavalcanti, head coach of the Alliance Team, will personally supervise and coordinate the camp to ensure you the best experience of your life.

Here is what some of last year's participants had to say about the camp:
"The Alliance camp at Buzios had the best of both worlds. A place where one could go to totally to focus on there training, avoid any distractions and also have a lot of fun. Jacare made us all feel at home and apart of his family while making us train hard and experience jiu-jitsu training like never before. I highly recommend the camp to anyone, from a beginner or the advanced level grappler who wants to train hard in a beautiful atmosphere with one of jiu-jitsus elite coaches."
Riccardo "BALEIA" Ammendolia
2004 Copa Osvaldo Alves Champion
2X Canadian Jiu-jitsu Champion
"As a beginner in the sport of BJJ, I had no idea of what to expect at your camp. Everything from the 10-day camp in the ocean-side town of Buzios to attending the world championships at Rio was first class. I would recommend the experience to anyone of any level involved in the grappling arts. Since coming home, I often think back to the great time we all had in Brazil. I am looking forward to attending your next camp."
"The camp was great, I had been training for about 3 months and it really solidified my love for jiu jitsu. I met people from other countries and got to train on beautiful beaches, I strongly recommend it."
