Our History

The Ross’s have spent the better part of the past two decades training in a variety of disciplines in : Boxing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai.  Combine their fighting and martial arts accomplishments with Albert’s military experience, and you have a program with high standards for what a traditional Martial Arts school should embody. In 2021 the duo relocated from California to North Carolina and said goodbye to Alliance Jiu Jitsu San Diego, their previous home for training. After searching high and low, they simply couldn’t find a martial arts school that felt like home. As the military has taught them to adapt and overcome, they decided to pivot and fast track their lifelong dream of opening their own school.
