East Van BJJ is now Alliance Vancouver

Our name might have changed, but our commitment to excellence hasn’t. While we’ve always been a leader in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu scene in Vancouver, our official connection to Team Alliance is one more step that sets us apart from the others.


By being Alliance Vancouver, we are truly becoming part of something bigger – something worldwide. The international recognition, prestige, and level of competition of Alliance offers is something no other BJJ school in Vancouver can provide. We are proud to be able to associate our school with eleven World Champions, six European Champions, and five Brazilian National Champions.

This is an exciting step forward and we are looking forward to reaping the rewards this new standard affords us.
