The host: I've been training BJJ for half a year and I absolutely LOVE it! I now work at the gym I train at as a salesperson, so I'm at the gym everyday and all day. I've competed four times, FUGI in pensacola Florida (silver), FUGI atlanta Georgia (silver), IBJJF cinncinnati Ohio (silver), and IBJJF Nashville (Gold) and more to come!! I'm very easy going and I plan to travel as often as I can!

The place: I live in Nashville Tennessee, about a 10 minute drive from downtown. Nashville is a rapidly growing city with lots of really cool places to eat, lots of Music attractions including live music in almost every bar, the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Johnny Cash Museum, and the Musicians Hall of Fame to name a few.
I live in a very small, 400 square foot studio apartment in East Nashville. I sleep on a futon couch, but there is room for a queen air mattress or possibly two twin air mattress. If there is more than one traveler, I will stay with my boyfriend and 1 or 2 people can sleep on the futon couch. Visitors are more than welcomed to use any appliances and can cook meals here if they'd like!

The training: I can work out some free training with the gym i mainly train at, Nashville MMA, the oldest MMA gym in the area with over 25 pro fighters training here and Shawn Hammonds also coaches here a couple days a week. I could also possibly get y'all some training at my boyfriend's gym, Legion Jiu Jitsu Hendersonville.

The host: I'm a Brown belt under Leo Vieira, I used to train at Checkmat HQ for the last year and the other 5 years in Peru under my sensei Cristian Grimaldo, first blackbelt of Tony de Souza. I'm an easygoing guy who loves to travel with a gi in the hand. I'm opening an academy in Cusco so you are more than welcome to visit my place.

The place: My place is in Lucrepata, Cusco. Really near by to the San Blas Market is one of the more tourist areas, my place is one block away to the market and a 10 min walk to the main square. 
Cusco is an incredible place and you can go around and see and discovered amazing places by walk or by tour, I'm happy to do some walks too.

I can offer a room with plenty of space to make yourself comfortable, you can cook your own meals, have a shower and also roll inside the place bc i got mats too.

The training: You are going to be training over 3400m over the sea side so better prepare that mind for it! I can promise a quality training since I've been traveling and competing around the world for the past 3 years and living in LA training under Leo Vieira for almost a year! So I can promise good rolls and good class too!

The hostHello my Name is Aurora Ute and I have a Metaphysical Wisdom & Wellness Center in Lampasas. This place is a Spiritual and Metaphysical Sanctuary for Women, and female only. Sorry guys. 
As mom of a 18 year old who is loving BJJ, I know how hard it is to find a place to stay and travel, special for females.

The placeLampasas is a small town in the middle Central Texas. There are some BJJ places 30 minutes away from here. We have a little mat-area at our house where my son trains. We have a beautiful nature out here. Our place is like I said a Sanctuary for Women, therefore we only can host women to not interfere with Business. This is our first time to host BJJ females friends, I don't know how long we gonna do it, first we must see if it works out for all of us.

In the summer time before it get to hot, you can stay in our comfortable tents, which have everything you need. Outside shower, fancy Outhouse. You can train with my son (very talented blue belt) or any BJJ surfing our little place.

No drugs! No alcohol! Because we let you stay for free it would be nice when you help a little on the land. You can learn (if you not already doing it) to meditate and can experience other Energy Healing Techniques.
And remember this offer is ONLY for women, providing a safe space and relaxation.

The trainingWe have a small training area in our home. The mat is big enough for 4 people training in the same time. The nearest BJJ Gym would be in the town called Killeen.
