BEGINNERS

BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU CLASSES

THE JOURNEY STARTS HERE.

Module 1: The most important step in your Jiu-Jitsu journey is your first step and this program ensures that your first step is safe, easy to follow and optimized for success.

We have 20 carefully designed classes that cover the fundamental concepts and techniques of Brazilian jiu-jitsu with application to both self-defense and sport. Our Module 1 program is open to ages 14 and older and to all levels of physical ability and conditioning. Aside from learning the fundamental BJJ techniques and concepts you can expect to increase your fitness level, flexibility and ability to defend yourself with consistent attendance to Module 1 classes. Once a new student has attended 60 Module 1 classes, they can move on to the Module 2 program.

Module 2: This program builds on the skills, techniques, and concepts that students will learn in the Module 1 program. You’ll delve deeper into offensive and defensive positions and how to connect one technique to another. With time and practice, our Module 2 students begin to develop their own style of Jiu-Jitsu and are able to test their growing knowledge with regular live sparring and drilling sessions. Typically, the first half of the class will be dedicated to warming up and drilling techniques and the second half will be some form of live training. All live training occurs in a controlled environment with the guidance of an experienced instructor who will be on hand as you make this transition.

At this point in your journey, you may wish to pursue the sports side of Jiu-Jitsu and compete. We actively encourage competition as it’s a great way to push yourself to the next level. However, if competing isn’t for you that’s fine too. Many of our students are hobbyists who simply want to better themselves through the art of learning.

GYM DUES & FEES.

We offer month to month memberships which may be cancelled with 30 days written notice. Shorter term memberships and drop-ins are also available to those on a more limited time frame.


Before you get started you’ll also need an official Alliance Uniform (Gi). Fortunately, Gi’s are available for purchase on location, or if you prefer to order online you may do so from the Alliance shop. Please note the online shop prices are in USD and it will be cheaper to purchase on location at the gym in CAD.

I would strongly recommend the kids program to any parent who is looking for safe environment for their children to gain benefits of an effective martial art. My kids have been going to this academy for 2 years. The program is taught by a black belt, Walter Buse. The kids have lots of fun and laughs as they learn techniques that work for self defence and competition. They have also had the opportunity to compete in various tournaments where they have won several medals and also several 1st overall kids team titles. The facilities are very well kept and clean. No funky gym smell!!! Having on site showers are a huge plus. I can attribute Alliance Jiujitsu to the noticeable improvement in my children’s confidence and attitude on how they deal with challenges and with people. Cheers!

As both the father of two young children as well as being an educator, I can say without a doubt that the learning environment at Alliance Vancouver is outstanding. The instruction is top notch, the members and staff are welcoming and inclusive, and most importantly for me, it is a place where I can see myself and my family training for years to come.

This gym has the perfect balance of competitiveness and friendliness. Everyone is genuinely nice and helpful in an environment that encourages each student to push themselves. All of the instructors are laid back but very professional. The facility is well maintained and classes always run on time. I couldn't ask for more.

I had never done any martial art up until a year ago and was super intimidated. Everyone at the gym has been super supportive and welcoming. It's like a large extended family. I have lots of fun here but be prepared to train and work hard. The results will be very rewarding.

I moved to Alliance Vancouver in late 2016, and have to say it was the best move. The management and instructors are all amazing people whom genuinely want to help you succeed. Of course that trickles down to all the students which has led to the best training I've ever experienced. I'm thankful to have found such great people to share my journey with.

I moved to Alliance Vancouver from another gym because of it's reputation for being the best jiu jitsu academy in town. It has proved to be that and more. The instruction and techniques are top class and the environment is welcoming and friendly.
