Excellent BJJ school
I have been going to Fabio Clemente's BJJ gym for over three years now, and this is by far the best martial arts school in general and BJJ school in particular I have ever seen or have been a part of. The teachers are very knowledgeable and attentive, the atmosphere is friendly and family like, and even at the white belt level you get to practice with very good people of all levels up to and including the black belts of which there are many. I have benefitted greatly from going to this gym and would and do recommend it to all my friends. It is a great way to get in shape and to become a part of a very exciting sport.

Easily one of the best jiu jitsu academies in the nation
Fabio Clemente's gym (Alliance NYC) is definitely the best jiu jitsu instruction that money can buy. I've trained here for a couple of years now (as well as some other schools in my hometown of Torrance), and I can't even express in words how much I missed this place while training elsewhere. First of all, the instructors are fantastic. Not only are they decorated competitors themselves, but they have many, many years experience teaching all levels of Brazilian jiu jitsu. Whether you're an elite competitor or brand new to jiu jitsu, this is the place for you. The gym itself is also very nice. They have two levels of mats (including a very spacious upstairs mat-space), and good climate-controlled rooms, so that you're not burning up in the summer or freezing to death in the winter. The rooms feel very comfortable. The students here are also great to train with. The gym is quickly growing in size, and so there are people at a wide-range of skill levels that you can train with, which makes it very easy to find good training partners. Everyone is super helpful as well, and always willing to help you iron out the kinks in your technique. In short, I love this place, and could not recommend it highly enough. If you are interested in jiu jitsu, you NEED to check this place out.

High Quality Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instruction for BJJ/MMA athletes and self defense
We all know that starting a sport like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be intimidating. We've all been there and we all overcame it, and boy, was it worth it... Suddenly a whole new world opens up to you, a world in which you learn every day: about the art, about yourself and about amazing people that you maybe wouldn't cross paths with while stuck in your daily routine. If you're ready to begin that journey, you should come and check out Fabio Clemente's gym. It's an amazing mix of experienced and dedicated competitors, regular guys who have fun doing jiu jitsu and people who want to learn how to defend themselves. The main instructors, Fabio and Babs, are big and well respected names within the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu scene, and other black belt instructors like Lou, who is teaching most of the morning classes, are equally amazing and keen to help you improving your jiu jitsu. Girls and boys are welcome and you can count on everybody remembering your name and treating you with respect, while supporting you during training sessions. It might be scary to set your step into a martial arts gym, but if you have come this far, you'll also be able to make it to 123 12th Street. I see you on the mats!

The Best Jiu Jitsu training and atmosphere are located here
I have been training for the past 5 years under Fabio Clemente, and I can say without hesitation and with full honesty that this Jiu Jitsu Academy is my second home. The respect I receive from the other members of the gym is not only warm and inviting, but very friendly, and family like, and I do in fact consider the members of this gym to be my brothers and sisters. The gym is very sanitary and cleaned every day vigorously, and everyone has access to self cleaning products in the available showers. The training is very open-ended to all people that have either never trained Jiu jitsu before or have been training for years. There are different classes rated on skill level, from beginner to expert, and the sessions are treated as so. Fabio Clemente and Babs Olusanmokun, the two main instructors, are highly advanced experts in the field of gi and no gi jiu jitsu as well as self-defense. They have taught me so much, and have helped me achieve gold medals from many jiu jitsu tournaments. Fabio, Babs, and everyone else at the academy show me hospitality and family love every time I enter the gym, and always help me improve my skills in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I can't thank this academy enough for everything it's done for me these past 5 years, and how grateful I am to everyone I have met and trained with and have helped me not only improve my Jiu Jitsu, but my self-image, discipline, and my attitude as well. I highly recommend this Jiu Jitsu academy to anyone from any walk of life, because its doors are always open to anyone.
