    Wife and I are planning a trip to Brazil. We have been to Spain, Italy, Germany, etc with the kids. One is 4, the other is 2.

    Where is a nice spot for the family and ofcourse to get away and train for a couple of hours. Going for about 2 weeks.

    My friend Jay Riemenschneider goes to Brazil all the time. He goes with his butcher.

    I would love to do it, but I would worry all the time while I was training and my wife was out with my son.

    I was thinking of doing one of those camps that would house all of us, but I don't know.

    well, you ned to clarify what you want to train (mma, vale tudo, bjj, submission, capoeira...) and what kind of thing your family likes ( beaches, big cities, and so on)

    personally i would advice you to avoid rio or sao paulo (violence and dengue fever) going northeast or south it's a good option

    I've heard that Florianopolis is good for family vacations.

    Not Brazil, but my wife and I are planning to look into taking a 4 day weekend vacation to Florida and get some privates in with Leo Kirby.

    Cool. Thanks.

    We might try to set up classes with both if it works out. We've been wanting to train with Leo for a while now, so training with him is the main reason we'd take the trip.
