Alpha Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu


This was two years ago this week, a friendly reminder of how much this school has grown.
2021/211. "A Start to Amazing"

Our neighbor Wyatt started studying Jiu Jitsu this week as part of a one-week summer camp at Alpha Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It feels like he's been talking about this for several weeks leading up to this, and we wondered if it could live up to his high expectations. But now that he's wrapped it up, it seems they did. He also reports that the other kids in his camp were really nice. I can't wait to see where this takes him!

"You don't need to be amazing to start. But you do need to start to be amazing."

Hereโ€™s the Full Kids Belt Ceremony for anyone that missed it.

Beyond pleased with my visit while in VA. Super laid back group, rock solid teaching, and intense drilling!

Thanks again guys!
An amazing atmosphere. Training is rigorous enough to push you to your limits yet conservative enough to encourage learning and growing. As a first time 30 year old practitioner with some minimal HS wrestling background I could not have found a better facility and a better group of guys to begin my jiu jitsu journey with. The advanced guys have no problem slowing down to show you what youโ€™re doing wrong and are generous with tips and advice. They are also more than willing to let you step on the gas to see where you stand. Great stand up community. Showing up early for class I sometime get to see Tad, the owner of Alpha jiu jitsu, doing a remarkable job with the kids. Not only is he clearly super knowledgeable but relatable to people of all ages and backgrounds. Look no further. If you want to practice and grow, this is the place for you.
Thanks to ABJJA affiliate Alpha Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for hosting us last night for a Memorial Day class. Garrett Beck went over an interesting method for passing the closed guard, and we sparred for almost an entire hour!
Little beasts learning how to pass the legs to knee on belly then windshield wipers over to the other side!
Tad was the instructor at one time for my two older kids, Rachel and Paul. He is truly an amazing man of character. Parents, if you want your children to train with a man who has a strong moral core and desire to bring out the best qualities in your children, sign up to train with him.
Hey guys, we are excited about having a new BJJ academy in Chantilly! Would you be interested in coming on The Fight Game Podcast soon? PM me

People at the top of my thank you list are Ben Lanier for putting up with me and my often unreasonable demands and having my back every step along the way. Thank you Garrett Beck for showing up week in and week out to help all of our students learn and grow. Thank you Abmar Barbosa and Abmar Barbosa Jiu Jitsu Academy for the endless support and more importantly friendship. Thank you Marysia Marysia for working with our advanced students and running an awesome women's program. Thank you Lucian, Kevin Kim, and Chris Thompson for everything you do, but for making great food and facilitating the party. Thank you Steve Garcia and Stephanie Garcia for providing the The Moonbounce Man obstacle course that always makes the anniversary party special for the kids.

Thank you to every parent that has brought their child to train with us over the years. Thank you to every student, past and present that has ever taken a class with us. Thank you Clemente Fernandez for giving us a boost to our adult program in the beginning. You're unique brand of sarcasm and sincerity and genuine love of the art was a significant part of our growth. We miss you and your family.

Thank you Dominic Ambrosini for always making this feel like a team since the beginning. The list of people that I am indebted to for being able to do this day in and day out is endless and words will never allow me to express my gratitude for each of you.

Congratulations to on the promotion to purple belt and to on his promotion to blue. Well earned on both accounts.

Thank you to for inviting us to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of his academy. I was honored to participate in the grand opening. It has been amazing to watch the growth of my friend's academy and see the culture that is fostered there.

Happy to play some part in all of it.


Big congratulations to .715 who received his purple belt last night.

We admire your work on the mat and you retooling your approach to find new areas to improve.

Glad to have you as part of our team.

We are looking forward to more promotions tonight when we attend 's 5-year anniversary, Abmar's Birthday, and Promotion Ceremony!


Thank you to everyone who attended our first Movie on the Mats night at Alpha Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Pizza, snacks, games, and Spiderman: Into the Spider Verse.

Everyone had a good time and looking forward to making this a monthly occurrence. Suggest our next movie in the comments.

Thanks again ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™


The object is to off balance your opponent to make them touch the floor with something other than your feet OR to push them out of the circle. Coach Tad had Owen on the brink before Owen countered with a seio nage.

Love this kid.

Leave the egos at the door and train hard to make your teammates improve.


Not the first no gi class we have ever had, but this is the first official no gi Wednesday night class.

Thanks for everyone who participated in the class and the positive feedback. Looking forward to making no gi Wednesday a permanent staple of our schedule.

Sorry if I missed tagging you. I don't remember all your handles and IG didn't autocomplete some of you.

Great job tonight in youth BJJ 9-14!


Normal Schedule Today!


Alpha is the first academy that focuses on the complete development of jiu jitsu students. We offer classes beginning for students as young as 4 years old and spanning every age group into adulthood. We offer youth classes for students 6-12 years of age at different skill levels (fundamentals and advanced) to provide students with the foundation they need to succeed and offering curriculum that will continue to challenge them as they grow up in the sport. For students aged 13-17, we offer a teen focused class bridging the gap that offers more advanced teaching for students to prepare them for the adult program. The adult program continues to educate students in the constantly evolving sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and challenges them each and every class physically and mentally. Review our schedule of class offerings and our class descriptions.

Our Instructors are the best in the area and dedicated to giving the best instruction available.

We are also in the early stages of harnessing technology to aid in the retention of BJJ. We are working with developers to create an app specifically catered to the needs of a BJJ student.
