What is AVIV Experience?


AVIV Jiu Jitsu was founded in 2018 by world champions Luanna Alzuguir and Ana Carolina Vieira, which aims to empower women by providing world class jiu jitsu instruction in a safe and welcoming environment.

The AVIV Experience is an extension of that mission, inviting women from all over the world to learn jiu jitsu from some of the best females in the sport all while being in paradise.
