• Hi guys,

    I'm here in Rio on exchange studies at UFRJ until August and while I'm here I'd like to train MMA. Does anyone know of any good MMA gyms (preferably in or close to Copacabana)? Any help is much appreciated.

    Mohammed, I recommend UPPER Gym on Flamengo. The structure is amazing, a whole building for practicing. It's the HQ of Nova União, and the main coach is Dedé Pederneiras. Zé Aldo started there...

    You should try Art fighters Downtown, in Lapa. Its the best place for Muay Thai, but they also have MMA. It is also very cheap and the teachers are great.

    Thank you so much for all the tips!
    Recreio is a bit too far from unfortunately. Do you know how much it costs to train at Nova União or Art Fighters? And is it possible to try it out before signing up?

    In Art fighters it costs 90 reais, if you pay before the day 10, 70. You can practice every day from Monday to Saturday MMA-MuayThai. They also have another modalities but then you would have to pay an additional price. Its a very good trainning center. It is located at Rezende street, 141 first floor. Its near bardas quengas and cruz vermelha. Its possible to try it out before signing. You chould gothere and take a look. =)

    Upper is certainly more expensive, but it's like a Fights Pass, u can do a lot of styles, as many times as you want. At least it used to be like that.
