Ready to start your Jiu Jitsu journey?

Bruno Almeida Alves is a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu black belt under Zé Radiola from the ZR Team. He has dedicated his life to competing at the highest level, winning multiple World Championships at the middleweight division including the European, Pan American, South American and Mundial World Championships.

In 2011, Bruno moved to Australia with the vision of teaching the best Jiu-jitsu to as many people as possible. In this time Bruno has created the fastest growing martial arts school in Australia with gyms throughout Sydney and Melbourne, including Crows Nest, Brookvale, Maroubra, Gladesville, Ku-Ring-Gai, the Blue Mountains, Narrabeen, Pascoe Vale, and more on the way. Bruno’s own gym, SJJA HQ in Crows Nest, is now one of the biggest in the country.

Bruno attributes his success on and off the mats to the values he developed over a lifetime of training and competing, and in 2017 he created a martial arts school with his winning mindset at its core.
