About Us

Humberto "Beto" Borges is a native of Brazil, hailing from Goiania, and moved to the United States in 1998. In 2000, Beto began training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Romero "Jacare" Cavalcanti at the Alliance headquarters located in Atlanta, Georgia. Beto went on to win both Silver and Gold medals at the Pan-Americans in 2008 and 2009. Following the Pan-Americans, Beto was the first Brazilian awarded a Black Belt under Jacare in the United States.

Since that time, Beto has trained Josh Koscheck and the AKA team in Fresno, California, for two years. Around mid-2012 Beto decided it was time to open his own academy affiliating with his team, Alliance. With Jacare’s endoresement, Beto opened his own Alliance school in a Northern suburb of Atlanta, located in Marietta. With the new school in place the ten-time world champion Alliance Team is sure to shatter new records with a force that will be stronger than ever.

Self Defense

Self Defense is a major component of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Martial Arts system. Self-defense starts with situational awareness and potential threat avoidance. We teach the fundamentals of avoiding conflict with quick tactical defense moves such as take-downs and submission holds. We also specialize in teaching “Bully Prevention” techniques for children. Self-confidence is also important to survival situations – this is naturally attained through training Jiu Jitsu, but is reinforced through your own progression in the Martial Art. Come and see what it’s all about!

Alliance Affliate

Borges Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an affiliate of the Alliance team. Led by a true Grandmaster, Romero Jacare Cavalcanti, we teach jiu-jitsu in a style that has its roots traced to the original Gracie Academy in Brazil. Our team represents the only team that has won the IBJJF World Championships ten times. Be a part of something big, fight with us!


Another main benefit for training with our team is the Physical Fitness aspect. Not only will you be more confident because of your new Self Defense skill set, but you will be more fit than you have ever been in your life! Fact: Running on a treadmill is boring. Fact: The people lifting big weights are intimidating. Fact: You will hear story after story of how Jiu Jitsu has changed the lives of many individuals, while being the most fun that they’ve ever had. You will have your own story to tell after training for just a short time on our mats, making friends, and learning a special new set of skills.
