Montenegro

Wild nature

With some of Europe’s best beaches on its doorstep, Montenegro naturally has a chilled out vibe that attracts people from all over the world. At the same time, Montenegro has yet to be hit by the tourist boom, and if you want to experience the local culture in all its sense of the word, now is a good time to experience this place. You can spend your days training BJJ and exploring the awesome beaches and nature that surrounds the city of Bar where Moraca Jiu Jitsu house is located, your nights in some the quaint old towns where you can enjoy a drink with people from the camp. With great food to suit every budget, it’s the perfect place to spend a few days… or weeks… or even a month! (check out our deals for longer stays)

Tranquil vibe

Life here in Montenegro moves very slowly, First of all, Montenegrins are  LAZY, or we might also say  that they have a special attitude towards work. Most Europeans feel an internal need to work, they feel guilty when they don’t have “obligations” – Montenegrins enjoy doing nothing, sitting for hours in a pub and discussing all possible world issues, just waiting until they get a chance to earn money in an easy and fast way, haha. This is perfect for us, Although we train hard we need some time to recover for all the classes!, kick your legs back, and enjoy life without worries.

Our home is your home

Everybody in the neighbourhood will make you feel at home, after a couple of days you will get to know people not only from the camp – but also some of the locals! We have everything within walking distance of the camp, the gym, supermarkets, restaurants, fitness gyms, outdoor bodyweight training facilities, trails for running and of course the beaches.

Montenegro is all about the great outdoors, so if you have been travelling for a while in big cities and places crowded with tourists this is your chance to get outside the comfort zone and enjoy the wide open spaces and beautiful landscape.

Survival guide

Explore, experience and have fun !

This is really what we believe you should do, if you are in Montenegro or anywhere else in the world. Stop following people and must-see lists that your guidebook or app tells. Make your own experience of the city, get lost. Be open when you visit, and most of all, ready for new experiences and to meet new people. We should experience a new place, by it´s food, culture but most importantly by it´s people. So, make new friends, talk to locals (try) and please take your eyes of your smartphone, at least while you are outside
