Alliance is the most dominant competition team in the history of the sport. Alliance is the winner of 10 team World titles, including the last 8 consecutive, and is the only team in history to win all four major tournaments in a single year — and we did it twice. In 2011 and 2013, we won the World Championships, Pan Championships, European Championships, and Brazilian Nationals – the ‘Grand Slam’ of jiu jitsu.


Jiu Jitsu Studio 76 aka Team Gacho exclusively in the Spring, woodlands and North Houston area and an Alliance academy. 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).
