What to know

Hey, it’s James Johnson Jr. and I’m the owner of Alliance BJJ Washington. I started my martial arts journey as a young kid. I was trained in Tang Soo Do by my father James Johnson Sr. As a teenager I earned my Black belt under the Universal Martial Arts Federation. I had a very traditional martial arts beginning that gave me the foundation I needed to be more disciplined and respectful.

I’m very deep into my Jiu-Jitsu journey, but I still focus on continuous growth. As a natural competitor in high-level wrestling and martial arts, I can confidently say this is in my DNA. As the owner of Alliance BJJ Washington, I push myself to make sure you get the best instruction you can get.

Most importantly I pride our academy on helping our students reach their goals. Let us know your goals and I’ll make sure we do everything we can to make you our next big success story.
