I think I payed 700 R$ a month for a room in Leblon (nice part if Rio). Traning at BTT was about 100 US$ a month.

I don't think you'd be able to get a job in Rio. When you travel to a foreign country on a tourist visa, you are not allowed to work. To get a job in Brazil, you'd have to apply for some kind of semi-permanent work visa or something. That can be a lot of hassle, and you'll be really poor working in Brazil compared to the US (I'm assuming you're American based on your English).

Someone who has lived in Rio could probably give you a better idea of rents and training fees. I don't think they would be very high since the dollar usually has a favorable exchange rate in South America.

Don't mean to hijack this thread but haven't most of the top Brazilian guys moved to Cali now? Wouldn't Southern California at this point in time be a more desirable place to train?

top? Yea, they were top guys 10 years ago. If you want to train, i would say that Sao Paulo is a better place than rio.

There are only two academies in the US big and talented enough to compare with the ones in Brazil. They are Team Renzo Gracie and American Top team.

Make sure you aren't getting the gringo price. I wouldn't be surprised if academies do that.
