Educate trough Jiu Jitsu

Alliance was established in 1993 idealizing to be the biggest competition team on sportive Jiu Jitsu, which in fact hapenned in 2013 when the team became the biggest world title holder on the sport, although what matters for us is what we have learned and how we build the path, based on ethic and commitment with our art and history.

We use Jiu Jitsu as a tool to develop peoples life and that concept, existing since the first Jacare Jiu Jitsu School, stays alive at our schools around the world, that way making that beyond fighters we have our mat partners a real family, the undifferentiated treatment to all students and our eternal will to keep learning makes Alliance extract the best that each one can be, and thats our main goal.
