Each week of Team Alves Summer camp is a safe, fun-filled adventure. We explore local gems like Robinson Preserve, Mote Marine, The Ringling Museum, the beach and more. We work on improving our jiu-jitsu skills during mat time, and depending on the weather we might chill with a movie and some board games.

Children should come prepared with a backpack containing their lunch, a bottle of water, swimming attire, a change of clothes, and sunscreen.

We are so excited to be able to offer 4 weeks of camp this year. They are always happy campers.


About Us

Team Alves was established in 2012, since that time we have grown a healthy team, and supported many people along their BJJ journey.

We are a family busines (husband, wife, and son all teach at the gym), and we consider all of our students family.

We live by the credo: FAMILY OVER EVERYTHING.

Beginning students begin with one-on-one instruction with Professor Alves so they can enter class with confidence.

We offer over 20 classes per week to accommodate any schedule. We have Kids’ Classes for ages 4-8 and for 8 and up, as well as Adult Beginner, Female-Only, and Open Mats for everyone. On Sundays after training we like to do ice baths and spend time together barbecuing.

Katrina is certified in Yoga for BJJ.

Family Over Everything

We are committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment to everyone.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu requires inherent trust in your training partners and instructors.

We train hard, we laugh loudly, we joke around like family, but at the end of the day respect, discipline, and trust are the cornerstone of our mission.

What do I need for my first class?

Just an open mind, and workout clothes with no pockets. Come try a class, and if you like it, we will get you all set up with gear.

Do I need to be "in shape" to train jiu-jitsu?

Not at all. Jiu-jitsu is a great way to get in shape while using your brain, becoming part of a community, and challenging yourself.

How many times a week should I train?

The short answer: as much as you can, and what your schedule allows. But for owe recommend at least 3x/week for optimal progress.
