About Us

Alpha Miami Grappling opened in 2014, and has since shared the highest quality mixed Martial Arts training with the Miami community. We were founded by Carlos Sainz, a Martial Artist who is just as passionate about being a coach as he is about being an athlete. Professor Sainz received his black belt from Caio Terra, a twelve time world champion and one of the most accomplished rooster-weight Jiu-Jitsu practitioners in the world.

Professor Sainz believes in training his students without limitations. After being exposed to Martial Arts instruction at many different schools, he realized that kids are often not taken seriously. At that moment, he made it his mission to build the best kids Martial Arts team in the world. By teaching even his youngest students high-level Jiu-Jitsu, showing his youth classes how to fight like adults, and providing them with the same degree of knowledge given to his adult students, Professor Sainz made that dream a reality. Ever since our opening, Alpha Miami Grappling has won both in class and at competitions.
