The Academy


At Alliance Carlsbad, we take extreme pride in the quality of instruction offered by our instructors. Our head instructors, Tarsis and Johnny, both have world championships titles and have been training for over 20 years. They also continue to be actively involved in the competition scene and the jiu-jitsu world.

Whether you are new to jiujitsu or coming from another gym, we know you’ll love Alliance Carlsbad. Our team and instructors have a firm ‘no drama, no politics, no whining and no complaining’ rule. We come to learn, have fun and build each other up. Whether you are training for fun, wanting to pick up a new hobby, looking to compete or looking to learn self-defense while getting in the best shape of your life, our Alliance Carlsbad has something for you!

World Class Instruction and Training

Before sparring, we ensure that your technique is perfect. Because of this, our team consistently wins in competitions throughout the world. Our gym is well-known throughout the Jiu-Jitsu community because of the top talent that we have produced. Although our training is intense, our instructors create an atmosphere of respect for all of our students. We offer classes for children as well as adults.

Our gym has changed people’s lives, provides confidence, and discipline to everyone that steps through our doors. We welcome you to come and train with us.

Modern Facilities and Great Location

We built our Jiu-Jitsu gym from the ground up to offer a clean, spacious and welcoming facility for everyone. We offer a full-service laundry program so you never have to wash your Gi again and provide showers for all our members.

We are also located in Downtown Carlsbad with a ton of shops and eateries within walking distance. We are only a 5 minute drive to the beach and under 10 minute walk to the beach.
