We are especially proud of the compliments we receive about the facility on a routine basis. The Gym has huge open mat space for open mat hours and scheduled classes. It’s a comfortable place to change and shower after workouts. The bathrooms and showers are new, large, and well maintained. All of our equipment is new, well cared for and top of the line. The facility has a recently installed massive ceiling fan to circulate air during workout sessions. Alliance is the ideal layout and setup for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Strength and Conditioning training. Stop by today and ask for a complimentary tour of the facility.

This gym felt like instant family! It was such a blast to take the all-women class with Jena who makes everyone feel welcome and ensures you will have a great time. The other women were super friendly and a blast to train with as well. I will definitely be back the next time I’m in San Diego!!
My boys are loving it! All the instructors and staff are awesome. Gym has a super-positive vibe. This no doubt starts at the top with Professor Faria-- one of the coolest dudes I've ever met. I highly recommend Alliance to anyone interested in learning Brazilian Jujitsu.
I love Alliance, Professor Johnny is really friendly and his technique is superb. I came here from another academy as a brown belt and Johnny and the whole team accepted me with no problem. The training is unmatched and the instruction is as perfect as it gets.
Alliance is an amazing gym! Awesome instructors that really care, clean environment, individual attention to technique, and a great schedule. I would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of joining a gym.
Absolutely love this place! The vibe is always great and the training and instruction is second to none!
