We are extremely happy to announce that Arete Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Malta has affiliated with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Globetrotters.

What is Bjj Globetrotters?

Bjj Globetrotters is a community of globetrotting bjj practitioners. The core idea of the community is to connect people who love to travel and train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Globetrotters was originally established by Christian Graugart, who went around the world trip and train multiple different countries. He also wrote a book of his trip.

Both individuals and academies can join globetrotters (without any kind of fee).
Globetrotters have quite a large group in Facebook (around 7000 people), who are constantly trying to map out best places to train all over the world.

What is the point of this community?

If academy (like Arete Malta) affiliates with Globetrotters, they give an promise to let travellers train for free at least for 1 week. Also the academy never denies any member to go train any other academies.

In other words, globetrotters is rebelling against bjj politics.

What this means for Arete?

We welcome all the travelling globetrotters to come and train with us. You can train for free 1 week with us. Unfortunately, we don’t have any accommodation to provide, but we know few good hostels near the gym.

If you are travelling to Malta, you can contact us via

For Arete members

If enjoy travelling, why not combine it with jiu jitsu? Training jiu jitsu in different countries, with completely unknown people is once in a lifetime experience that you will remember forever 🙂

Editors note

I have been part of this of this community for few years. I have met tons of friends, trained with awesome people and seen completely different side of destinations I’ve travelled. I couldn’t say enough good things about this community and people who are part of it.
