Designing unique mat spaces and rolling experiences at the BJJ Globetrotters camps has become some what of an art form as well as a drug for me. I crave these rare, pure moments of beautiful scenery and beautiful Jiu Jitsu coming together.
Over the last 5-6 years of camps, I think we have managed to pull off some pretty amazing mat space setups; some of them you can see below.
Hold on for many more in the future!
