    I've read a lot of good things about the camp since they re-opened, but a friend who went said it was a waste. Anyone knowing anything about he camp please share.

    is it by Royce or Rorion?

    I heard many times that Royce is a very classy individual but often times geared towards
    more like a celebrity experience rather than really learning to fight.

    I guess depends on what you want.

    Brandinho has indeed been there and has given me quite a bit of great info. I don't want to speak for him of course, but I beleive the majority of his feedback was positive.

    I'm planning on making an extended trip to Brazil next spring/summer. The Gracie Camp seems like an unbelievable training facility, but the cost is exhorbinant. Upwards of $100 U.S a day. I'll take my chances elsewhere.

    If i was older and had the time and money to go, I'd go even though its like 95$ a day. Only live once so might as well enjoy it and make the most out of it

    It's not run by Rorion or Royce, but is run instead I believe under the auspices of Carlos Gracie Jr. (aka "Carlinhos") and may be affiliated with Gracie Barra. I thought you got to roll with the Gracie Barra school, including rolling with head instructor Marcio Feitosa. I think that's the same one that I saw on an onthemat.com video magazine.

    Yeah Gracie Camp is run by Carlinhos. It is affiliated with Gracie Barra and you do get to roll at the Gracie Barra school. However, Feitosa is no longer the head instructor at Barra. Gordo is now running things in Rio.

    Yeah... Feitosa is the head instructor at GB USA in Lake Forest, CA (1 hr south of LA). Piu Piu is also teaching there.

    Gracie Camp sounds awesome. I'm currently trying to work out my schedule so I'd get to go in the Spring of 2007. I already got the wife's approval. The BTT camp and Felipe Costa's (Brasa) camp look good too. I'm having a hard time deciding which one to do. Anyone know what those other camps are like? They all really look awesome.

    Thanks for all the info Brandinho.

    What time of year did you go? With the weather in Brazil do they ever have a cool season?

    Exactly. The training alone is well worth the cost. The food, bed, and lodging are freebies IMO. This shit sort of sells itself.
