Train With The Best at The Caribbean Roots Camp with Samuel Braga, Erik Wanderley, Valerie Letourneau & More

What’s the one most important, most beautiful thing that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has given you? What would you say has given you the best goosebumps?
Chances are – it’s the experiences. It’s all those new friends, laughs and jokes you crack with them, slaps and bumps followed with amazing rolls, travels and visits to different places, different academies and meeting all sorts of great people… Simply, it’s the enjoyment of the breath of life that BJJ inspires us with.

It’s exactly because of those happy, BJJ-inspired moments that we are happy to say that there’s a holiday waiting for you – and not just any kind of a holiday, but the one you’ve always wished for: at the famous Playa del Carmen in Mexico, training at the Roots Camp II!


At this one-of-a-kind retreat, you have an amazing opportunity to improve your Jiu Jitsu by learning from the best:

-From the 6x World Black Belt Champion and Berimbolo creator, Samuel Braga;
-From the 4th Degree Black Belt, a 5x IBJJF World Champion and MMA veteran Erik Wanderley;
-And from the 2x IBJJF World Champion, IBJJF Pan American Champion and IBJJF European Champion Wancler Oliveira!

If you’re also interested in giving a shot at and improving in MMA, then prepare to be excited… Because the MMA workshops will be held by the Bellator’s No.1 contender in the Flyweight Division and American Top Team athlete – Valerie Letourneau! Alongside her, you’ll also have an opportunity to further increase both your MMA and Muay Thai skill levels with the professional MMA fighter Caio Machado!
There’s a great experience waiting for the Yoga enthusiasts as well; the excellent instructor Andrea Cole will be leading the Yoga workshops!

And oh, by the way… There are two surprise guest instructors that will come as well – prepare to be delighted!


The camp will be held at the famous Playa del Carmen, in Mexico. The Sun and the gorgeous scenery of the Caribbean will provide you for an immediate warm welcome – and the training workshops will be held outdoors whenever weather permits… At the resort and at the beach, as well as at a local academy when necessary.

Yes, you’ve heard it right! It’s the perfect BJJ lifestyle: waking up to the melody of the Caribbean Sea’s waves and then enjoying a breakfast on the soft beach, before you get going to your workshop… And, in between the workshops, having an opportunity to take a swim, to enjoy resort activities or to simply take a nap in your hammock.
At night, you have a chance to enjoy and get to know the city with other athletes – what a fantastic opportunity to relax with like-minded people, isn’t it?


You can be a part of this camp’s phenomenal experience from April 8-13, 2020. There are options for both a four and a five-night stay – as well as plenty of options for customizing your stay. To decide, visit the Roots Camp schedule and find out which the best option is for you!

So, if you are a BJJ practitioner, an instructor, a martial artist or just somebody who loves martial arts and yoga – don’t let this amazing opportunity for a holiday you’ll never forget slip away. Instead, take advantage of it! Visit the Roots Camp II website, book your stay and decide to make the 2020 into the best grappling year of your life!
