Ari Galo is a renowned jiu jitsu and black belt teacher of the legendary master Carlson Gracie. During his career, he traveled the world giving seminars and tutoring at his various branches. In 2014, we built HostelWalk on the Favela. A Hostel / Training Center in the heart of Copacabana, where athletes and visitors from around the world could eat, train and sleep in a respectful, family environment. Due to the popularity of Ari Galo, the venture became a reference in the community, becoming a meeting point for athletes and locals. From then on, Ari decided to rescue his old dream of inaugurating a social project that would serve needy children in the area. Here, athletes from anywhere on the planet, from any gym or sport team, will have in Rio de Janeiro’s noblest place, a modern, comfortable environment with all the necessary structure to meet them during their stay in the Rio de janeiro city.
To be among the largest Jiu Jitsu schools in Brazil and the world and to be recognized worldwide for the differentiated education system and the incredible number of members of all ages practicing Jiu Jitsu and pledging to share the benefits of our sport and style of life.
We faithfully follow the rules and hierarchical system of the mat that are a fundamental part of the philosophy of our sport, showing respect to everyone from beginner to senior.
