Rio Grappling Club is a martial arts team with a network that extends across 4 continents (Africa, Asia, America and Europe). It is led by Roberto Atalla 5th-degree black belt and Mauro Chueng 4th-degree black belt both under Master Sergio Bolao Souza (black belt under Carlson Gracie Sr).
Our motto: BJJ without borders. In our understanding, our art can be practiced by people from all backgrounds, regardless of age, sex, ethnic background or where they live. However, BJJ is not for everyone. It takes courage and persistence to be training regularly and lots of people give up in their first year. We do not endorse watered down programs that hide students from reality. The Rio Grappling Club is a global sports organization committed only to martial arts development, without involvement in religion or politics. Fighting sports unite people and promote equality among humans.
