  1. Evan Meehan

    I attended this camp in 2019 and had a great time. The seminars were great, as you’d expect from the all-star cast, and the scheduled events were a blast. This was a great opportunity for me to meet fellow jiu-jitseros from around the world and I made friends and connections during that camp that persist to this day. The Global Village was an incredible experience and no other camp I’ve attended has offered something like it. I’m taking a star off for the included restaurant meals – the restaurants didn’t usually feel prepared for the number of people who were coming and the portions were a bit small.

  2. Ognen Dzabirski

    Went to this camp for the first time in 2021. I like to go to lots of Jiu-Jitsu camps so I consider my bar to be pretty high. BJJ summer week ticked all the boxes – efficient organization, high-level BJJ classes, great parties and hangouts, well thought-out (and executed) excursions….It was by far the biggest camp I have attended (300+ participants) and organizing every event through a dedicated app was a masterstroke.
    The Global Village experience was definitely worth remembering (for those that somehow managed to retain their ability to remember:).
    Personally, I really enjoyed the buses that were transporting camp participants around the city at all times.
    All my meals expectations were met as a vegetarian, with lots of diversity in terms of food.
    I recommend this camp highly and will definitely be coming back for more in future camp editions!

  3. Glenn Lambdin, California

    This camp is more than just BJJ. Besides providing world class instruction, this camp is about connecting with others from all parts of the world and sharing our cultures, friendships, and passions…..and then choking each other out. The staff are well organized, informed, prepared, friendly and they make sure that every accommodation and need is met. I can’t wait for the next camp.

  4. Cecilia Garcia Podoley

    Great ambiance, year after year it gets better. Excellent coaches, super organisers, amazing city.

  5. Darren Baggott

    Attended A SummerCamp A Year Prior To The Most Recent One And It Was Amazing! I Wanted To Attend This Year Again But Unfortunately I Couldn’t As I Was Mega Busy And Was Moving House During The Times Of The Camp! I’ll Be Back Next Year Though 100%

    Love The Summercamps! 🤙
