Siargao Island, Philippines


Siargao Island
, located in the Philippines, is renowned for its pristine white-sand beaches and crystal-clear turquoise waters. As the surfing capital of the country, Siargao attracts wave enthusiasts from across the globe to the world-famous Cloud 9 surf spot.

Beyond surfing, the island offers captivating landscapes with lush coconut palm forests, hidden lagoons, and vibrant coral reefs. There are plenty of local restaurants, bars and shops to explore as well. Its laid-back atmosphere and friendly locals contribute to the island’s unforgettable charm and surf town vibes.

The best way to get to Siargao is to fly to Sayak Airport (IAO), or commonly referred to as Siargao Airport. You will most likely have to fly to Manila or Cebu and then onto Siargao.

No-Gi Grappling Training
Roberto Jimenez IBJJF No Gi Absolute Black Belt World Champion 2023

All 10 no-gi lessons will be led by ADCC Veteran and 2023 IBJJF Absolute No-Gi World Champion, Roberto Jimenez. Roberto will be showing the very technique that has taken him to the world’s highest level in the sport. He will be demonstrating his signature back takes and leg lock defense – perfect for any grappler, wrestler or fighter looking to increase their back take ability and avoid getting finished with heel hooks!

This camp is ideal for coaches and gym owners looking to bring new high-level technique to their own gym and network with other athletes and gym owners from around the world. Rest assured, we welcome all types of participants from any place in the world. The training environment is guaranteed to be inclusive and friendly so everyone can share in the joy of grappling.

This is a very exclusive camp with a limited capacity, so you will be sure to get plenty of time and attention to ask Roberto questions both on and off the mat. And of course, have the opportunity to spend a week and roll with one of the very best grapplers on the planet.

All training will be held at the locally-owned gym, Catangnan Beach Dojo, only a 3 minute tuk tuk ride from Harana Surf Resort. There will be a total of 10 lessons followed by open mat, a welcome open mat to start the camp, as well a Q&A and farewell open mat to end the camp.

Accommodation

We offer accommodation at Harana Surf Resort, a bungalow-style resort located right on the beach and in close proximity to the training gym, the Cloud 9 surf spot, and the heart of the town, General Luna. 

The resort includes a newly constructed pool, plenty of lawn space with cushions to relax, a full bar and restaurant, and a beach with a volleyball net and beach bar. You can access the ocean and surf a number of surf breaks right from the resort.

All breakfasts will be included with the accommodation. The resort has its own restaurant with a variety of delicious food available for lunch and dinner as well.

You may choose to stay in a shared room or a private room. The shared room comes with 2 single beds, and the private room comes with 1 queen bed. Each room is a bungalow-style design and includes air conditioning, separate bathroom and shower with heated water, and a safe to store valuables. 

If you plan to join the camp a friend, partner or spouse, you may request to room together with them after booking. Just make sure each person books their spot for the camp separately and each person chooses the shared double room option. We will send an email after you book so you can specify who you would like to room with.

Group Activities
Harana Beach and Chill

Besides surfing and training, we will have a variety of free group activities. Siargao is full of activities to do and places to explore. Each day we will pick different activities to do for anyone who wants to join.

In the evening, we might either chill out at the accommodation to chat and play some games or hit the town for nightlife. The accommodation, Harana Surf Resort, also offers live music on Wednesday night as well as a large dance party and DJ to close out our camp on Saturday night.

Some of the other activities may include: bar crawls, game nights, evening food market, casual beach trips, walking tour, and more. Most activities will take place within short distance of the accommodation, and there are plenty of tuk tuk drivers we can help arrange for everyone.

Surfing


Siargao Island is THE surf capital of the Philippines
. Surfboard rentals and local private surf instructors will be available for an additional purchase during the camp. 

Like training, all levels of surfing experience are welcome. There are many different surf breaks that offer a variety of waves so everyone will have the opportunity to surf the waves that best fits their experience.

Rest assured, if you are completely new to surfing, you can still have a safe and enjoyable time. The local surf instructors will join you in the water to guide you for each wave. 

For more experienced surfers, there are also instructors who can take you out to bigger breaks. There are also surfboard rentals available for additional purchase, but feel free to bring your own board!

There are many surf breaks in close proximity to the accommodation and around Siargao Island that you may explore on your own, and there will be plenty of time outside of training to get your surf in.
