    Crispim is a great teacher and really cares about the success of his students. I have been training with him for years and I have had many other teachers, but Crispim is by far the best. I wouldn’t go to any other school. If you want to learn technique in a fun friendly environment then this is the school for you.

  • Michael says:

    I have taken my children to Crispim for years and he is by far the best BJJ instructor I have seen. He teaches respect, discipline, self confidence, but also encourages a fun, positive environment to learn. I also have trained with Crispim for years and my game is constantly improving. No matter how often I go, I ALWAYS learn something new. The atmosphere at his academy is great and he encourages a team environment. I also really enjoy watching him compete and fight. If you are looking for an academy, you want to make sure you check his out.

  • Jason says:

    I love this school. Not only is Crispim an incredible instructor, but he creates a really comfortable environment whether you are training to be a fighter or just want to learn jiu jitsu for fun. He has fitness classes that are included in the membership and also has a very talented boxing instructor. Would recommend you checking it out.

    Awesome instructor. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.

  • Hayden O'Shea says:

    The finest BJJ academy in the Bay Area. My entire family participates in the different classes at the academy and we could not be happier with the entire staff and facilities. The BJJ instruction is amazing for both kids and adults and the boxing and fitness is first rate. Highly recommended!

    Crispim is a great instructor! The academy is my second family. I absolutely love training here. If I could train all day everyday, I would! The academy and its students are united like a team. Crispim teaches Jiu Jitsu in the simplest way and it is very effective. He makes sure you completely understand something before he moves on to teach something else. I would never train elsewhere!

  • RYAN says:

    The only way I can describe the vibe is it’s a big family. Crispim knows so much about everything that he has the best prospective on what really works. He believes strongly in teaching fundamentals. He also has so many other top notch coaches in striking wrestling fitness and something else he brings to the table is his mind set its almost like he is a Greek philosopher because everything he teaches you about Jiu Jitsu applies directly to your real life outside the academy like he says Its a lifestyle. Everyone from white belts to blacks are very friendly and will help you with anything you need Crispim makes sure the vibe is awesome and no one has egos from the professional fighters that train there to the new white belts. I looked around at a lot of schools but this school offer everything all in one place Jiu Jitsu striking wrestling pro mma fitness boxing and the kids classes are outstanding I would bet my house that he has the best kids program in the bay area! I was talking to a Purple belt from another school and he actually told me that if he could he would rather learn from Crispim and Crispim is the best all-around teacher and person to learn from. That’s a very strong statement but Crispim is everything he said and so much more. Please feel free to call him or come to the academy and see for yourself and I promise it will be the best choice you will ever make!!!

  • Brooke says:

    The experience at Crispim BJJ is the best! Everyone that trains there is happy and supportive of each other. It’s cool to see and hear people’s minds working as they are getting an incredible physical workout. If you want to learn why and how BJJ is effective, train with Alexander Crispim and Daniel Elias at Crispim BJJ. It’s fun!!!

    My son is 6 and participates in the Kids BJJ class. The teachers are AMAZING to say the least. They have taken the time to get to know him. They have built a strong relationship with him and he is very comfortable working with them. He knows that he can ask for assistance is needed. The teachers will spend time with him to ensure that every need is met.

    My son also loves the fact that his teachers are still fighters. They have now become his hero’s.

    I love the fact that there is a HUGE since of family in this gym. The kids and adults are greeted every class by ALL of the teachers at the academy. We are very proud to be part of the Crispim Barra Brothers family.

  • Paul Benson says:

    My 7-year old boy tried out the Kids BJJ class after not having had much fun with either Taekwondo or Karate. He loved it from the first day, the instructors make every class fun, and teach the kids real life skills applicable to both self-defense (these kids will never need to worry about bullies) and tournaments. One huge difference between this academy and other martial arts styles is that the kids (and adults) learn what it feels like to grapple with an opponent from day one. The teachers were so great that I decided to join the adults BJJ class as well, the best decision I’ve made in a long long time!

  • James Maher says:

    I have heard so many great things about this gym, enough to where I’m willing to bypass other gyms in my area to give it a shot. I’ve boxed for several years but would like to do more ground fighting. I heard that as a mentor, Alexander Crispim is the elite, and apparently so is the facility. Will keep you posted on my high expectations
