With the continual rise in popularity of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), ONE FC, BELLATOR and other MMA organisations, increasing numbers of people are now following and participating in fitness training based around martial arts, or more specifically Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Loads of Traditional Martial Arts schools have realigned themselves to the benefits of cross training, as have local gyms opted to include MMA fit classes or get themselves certified into programs even if it falls well short of the mark of what MMA is (pure marketing).
It can be hard to distinguish or work out which training facilities actually provide legitimate MMA training with so many options out there and flashy advertising! Alliance MMA is one of the few training facilities in Canberra offering legitimate MMA training. The training techniques and strategies provided by Alliance MMA are current, always evolving, consistent, and delivered professionally.
If you are planning on starting MMA, ensure you shop around, try a few places out, don’t simply join somewhere because your mate or friend trains there! Get a feel for the place, the instruction, the routines, the members and the details, make sure you do your research!

Alliance MMA offers submission fighting/wrestling in the form of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ).
Alliance MMA is the home of EQUIPE MESTRE WILSON JIU JITSU AUSTRALIA (EWMJJA-Canberra) under 4Th Degree Black Belt Professor and 2018 World Champion 2018 Minol Tavares Tutida. Our mission is, to focus on providing our members with the highest possible standard and the most up to date international level in BJJ Techniques possible. EMWJJ is the only BJJ club in Australia that has direct lineage to one of the 9 Recognized Grand Masters (Red Belt) that govern the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation (IBJJF). Our Grand Master Wilson Pereira Mattos is the only Red Belt to have stepped foot and demonstrated techniques on Australian shores.
BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique, taking the fight to the ground – most notably by applying joint-locks and choke-holds to defeat and or immobilise the other person. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (Gi and NoGi) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competition or self-defence. Sparring (commonly referred to as “rolling”) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system.
