So, let’s talk about a BJJ camp first, and then we’ll go into the ins and outs of this particular Mendes Bros 2019 camp. The first day of a BJJ camp is usually getting to know people and settling in. There’s usually an introductory training session where you get to hear about the agenda. Speaking of the agenda, training is usually three times a day, often with some yoga or other fun activities included. You have the freedom of attaining or skipping any class. However, I doubt anyone would be missing a Mendes Bros class!

Training With The Best Of The Best
As if you need an introduction to the Mendes brothers! Still, let’s presume you’ve been living in a hole somewhere, never attempted a Berimbolo and have no idea who these famed brothers are. Let us help you with that. Both Rafael and Guilherme Mendes are black belts under Ramon Lemos of the Carlson Gracie lineage.
Rafel Mendes is a true grappling phenom and is considered to be the King of the Featherweights. He has a record number of World Titles in that division, with a total of 6 so far. Rafa is one of the main people to innovate and develop the Berimbolo and 50/50 guard, among many other positions. He is also the man who managed to remove Cobrinha from the featherweight throne. Now, he runs the Art Of Jiu-Jitsu Academy with his brother Gui. They’re also both a part of the Atos Jiu-Jitsu competition team. Rafa got his black belt in 2008.
Guilherme Mendes is the older of the two brothers. He got his black belt fairly later than Rafa, in 2015. He is also a multiple time world champion, with four titles to his name. Gui Mendes is the first Atos Jiu-Jitsu team member to achieve a gold medal at an IBJJF World Championship. He has also known for a wicked top game that includes lots of pressure and the use of leg drags.
