Come join BJJ Globetrotters in January 2016 for the third BJJ Globetrotters Winter Camp in the beautiful Austrian Alps. Prepare yourself for four super intensive days of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, ski sports, party and lots of new friends. You will experience an action-packed camp in a surreal location. You don't need to have any prior experience in either Brazilian Jiu-jitsu or snowboarding, as the instructors will take care of every step. You will surely have an experience of your lifetime.
The house hosting the camp has lots of room for all of us and more. You will have a choice of staying in a 4-6 bed shared room or in one of our few double rooms, if you want some more privacy to sleep after a long day of skiing, snowboarding, and rolling.
BJJ Globetrotters' 2017 winter camp includes skiing and BJJ lessons for all levels. Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned skier/snowboarder, this camp is right for you. From the lifts near the house where you stay, you have easy and direct access to a vast area of more than 120 km slopes that cater to all levels. There is also a small practice slope which you can use for free before you decide to pay for a lift pass.
The ski and snowboard instructors for the camp are extremely experienced, and they will gladly help you get the best out of your trip. Regardless if you have never seen snow before or you need a trustworthy guide for the craziest off piste drops, they are there for you.
You will also have some high quality BJJ training and sparring during the camp! The camp house has its own little gym and you’ll be running daily classes and sparring sessions, where you are guaranteed to improve your game.
The classes are catered to all levels, so regardless if you are a BJJ white or black belt, you will get something out of it. There will be plenty of time for personal attention and if you have anything specific you want to work on, they’ll be happy to help. The mats are available 24 hours of the day, so you can roll, drill or train any time you want, outside of the class schedule.
As always, the BJJ Globetrotters camps are full of friendly people from all over the world, who enjoy good training in a fun, relaxed and open-minded environment.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training can be used for sport grappling tournaments and mixed martial arts competition or self-defense. Sparring and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system.
Since its inception in 1882, its parent art of judo was separated from older systems of Japanese Jujutsu by an important difference that was passed on to Brazilian jiu-jitsu: it is not solely a martial art, it is also a sport; a method for promoting physical fitness and building character in young people; and, ultimately, a way of life.
Less than an hours drive from Salzburg airport and nested in between the gorgeous, Austrian alps, is the small town of Wagrain with a population of just 3,000 people. The area around it is full of world class ski slopes and romantic, little towns with old buildings. Here, we will host the second BJJ Globetrotters Winter Camp, and we can’t wait to arrive there and have a fantastic experience together with other Globetrotters from around the world.
Food is served three times a day, so you don’t have to worry about that. There is also a 24 hour free fruit and (non-alcoholic) beverages bar that you are welcome to use as much as you like. If you need anything else in between the meals, there is a supermarket just one minute walk from the house.
