Experience a full week of outdoor fun, featuring sunshine, sandy beaches, and intense submission grappling, all set against the stunning backdrop of the jungle rainforest!

Join us for an incredible week where you can soak up the sun, relish sandy beaches, and dive into the world of submission grappling amidst the breathtaking Costa Rican jungle. You'll have a chance to experience an innovative style of training inspired by Greg Souder's unique approach to teaching and skill development, which is truly exceptional. The Ecological Training Approach emphasizes task-based situational training and immersive situational games, rather than hours of static drilling that doesn't translate to live situations. Don't miss out on this extraordinary experience! This opportunity is perfect for beginners seeking to kickstart their training journey and for seasoned grapplers aiming to elevate their skillset. Throughout the week, we'll live, dine, train, and learn together in an environment that fosters rejuvenation, growth, and meaningful connections!
