About this trip

Join us for what is sure to be a cultural experience like no other.  A for sure bucket list item is being present in Mexico City for Dia De Los Muertos.  Celebrations in Mexico City begin the weekend before the actual day, thus upon arrival you will be smack in the middle of this beautiful celebration.  

Jiu Jitsu, some of the best food in the world and remarkable site-seeing is what this camp will provide. 

What to expect

With the guidance of our Grappling Getaways Instructor, Iztel Bazua - Mexico's first female black belt, we will aim for full immersion in celebrating Dia De Los Muertos as authentically and as safely as possible.  We will take care of you from your moment of arrival at the airport until we return you safely on Nov 2nd.  Be prepared for a jam-packed itinerary inclusive of the most tasty cafes and restaurants Mexico City has to offer.   All activities will be optional, as you are always welcome to stay back to relax and unwind.  For the go-getters of the bunch that have to move all of the time, there will be more than enough opportunities for you to explore the wonder and beauty that Mexico City has to offer.  

We will be going to the annual parade, visiting local cemeteries, La llorona (Weeping Woman) Canal Ride in Xochimilco , getting our faces painted (Catrina face paint) to go with our Dress shopping, enjoying Pan de muertos , viewing beautiful sites and altars all across they city while training jiu jitsu with friends from across the world. 


As we get closer to camp we will assist you with arrival and departure flights.  There are thousands of flights daily in and out of Mexico City.  We will have everyone arrive between a specific time frame and arrange all pick ups.  You can expect consistent communication from the moment of your arrival. 

You can typically find RT flights to Mexico City for under $450 RT


We do our best to rent the best Airbnbs for our campers.  It ends up feeling like one big sleepover, with the option to unwind in peace and quiet if you so require.  After registering we share photos and closer to the event, the address will be provided. 

Please Note: Our campers almost always share a room with other campers, and in some instances a bed.  

If you require your own bed, please reserve one at checkout.  

Additionally, if you have a room mate request, you can make it during checkout as well.

The Back to the 80s Grappling Getaways was an amazing weekend filled with awesome training sessions, fun excursions in the Lake George area, an incredible lakeside house, and an amazing, welcoming, group of women! From the location, to the food, and training in the pavilion to all the thoughtful 80s themed goodies, gifts and treats, April and Katie went above and beyond. I was hesitant about joining this weekend adventure, especially as a fairly new white belt. I can’t express what an amazing experience this was for me and I can’t wait to be able to join another Grappling Getaways! You ladies rock!!

What a weekend!!! The accomodations were fabulous! Coffee on the dock with the light fog rolling in was just one of the many highlights of this trip. Everyone was friendly, outgoing, and our host Katie and April made sure everyone felt welcomed and included! The 80s theme was fantastic and everything was decorated so well. We even got swag bags :) The training was also amazing. I learned new moves and new tweaks to moves that I had been doing for years. There is so much more I can say about this wonderful weekend! I feel energized about my jui jitsu again and have a whole new group of friends. So happy I got outside of box and joined this EPIC weekend!

Where do I even begin again? Well this is my 5th camp and I am absolutely obsessed hence why I keep coming back. To the beautiful accommodation on the lake, training sessions at the pavillion, 80s themed party, excursions, food options, and all of the amazing campers made the trip for me. I'm blessed to have found such strong and fun women who are now my friends that share the same passion as me when it comes to jiu-jitsu. I'm still on cloud 9 from this weekend and looking forward to the next camp. ❤️

This was my 3rd camp in Lake Placid and I had such a great experience! Training with other women at these camps is like training in a room full of laughter. I can’t wait for the next one! Thank you Grappling Getaways for the opportunity to be part of this experience.

This was my first getaway and it won’t be my last. This trip, these people and this experience was something my soul needed. I made lifelong friends, learned some killer techniques while vacationing in paradise. I got solid life advice for things I’m struggling w in my own business. Seeing such strong, powerful women be so down to earth and welcoming and loving just makes feel so grateful I made the trip….. next trip will be Mexico. See you soon Coaches!!!!

Highly recommend!! I've attended 3 amazing Grappling Getaway camps so far (and plan on attending many more) and each time is unique and awesome! April and Katie are exceptional women who truly love what they do! I appreciate so much the time and effort they take to connect with female struggles both on and off the mats, makes these camps unmatchable. Their attention to every detail, coupled with their incredible ability to just go with the flow, makes being in their presence an authentic jiu jitsu experience. They create such a welcoming, fun, and empowering experience, where friendships are seeded and your jiu jitsu grows! If you're wanting to feel empowered by strong women with great attitudes and open minds, you should DEFINITELY get to a Grappling Getaway ASAP!

April, and the other instructors with Grappling Getaways are THE BEST. Top notch human beings who are amazing at jiu jitsu and amazing at teaching. I’ve been to 3 Grappling Getaways events, and each has been so much fun, so inviting, encouraging, and appropriately challenging for what was advertised. I’ve met so many incredible female leaders and role models through Grappling Getaways. HIGHLY recommended :)
