Professor Andre is amazing. He is focused on technique and emphasize’s the importance of form. I have my 3 daughters enrolled in it and I just joined in myself. Having the confidence to know that you can defend yourself is priceless.
Professor Andre is a highly qualified black belt with an unbeatable lineage. He has patience, technical knowledge, and works with the rest of the Alliance black belts to stay updated on the most current techniques. Highly recommend if you want to stay on the cutting edge of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
My son started jiu -jitsu almost 3 years ago. Professor Andre Cury took over the gym a few months ago. He is from Brazil and has strong ties with the Brazilian Alliance. The instruction is first class and his teaching is precise ,showing the latest techniques from Brazil. The professor is very caring and pleasant which creates a perfect learning environment. The learning curve is excellent because they do many reps with a new technique. The rapport between the students and master is excellent with many questions and answers. We are so very pleased to belong to Alliance and learn from the Professor!
It's a very nice place to learn Jiu Jitsu, I am having a lot of fun. Andre pays attention to everyone, he knows everyone's needs. He's a very cool teacher and has an excellent black belt.
I have been training at Alliance NW since Professor Andre opened last year. It has been an excellent and safe environment to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in learning BJJ, experienced in BJJ or other martial arts looking to further their training come check it out. They offer classes at many different times for all skill levels/ages, there is something for everyone at Alliance NW. Oss!
