About Alliance

Alliance is the most dominant competition team in the history of the sport. Alliance is the winner of 11 team World titles, and is the only team in history to win all four major tournaments in a single year — and we did it 3 times. In 2011, 2013, and 2015 we won the World Championships, Pan Championships, European Championships, and Brazilian Nationals – the ‘Grand Slam’ of jiu-jitsu.

Lemos Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy represents Alliance exclusively in the Brisbane area. Those who train with us are also part of this global powerhouse team.

Alliance was founded in 1993 by Romero “Jacare” Cavalcanti (Alliance Atlanta) and his students Fabio “The General” Gurgel (Alliance Sao Paulo) and Alexandre “Gigi” Paiva (Alliance Rio).
