Coach Alyssa Costa

2017 AGF National Champion

I started at Gracie Barra at 11 years old, and it quickly became a passion of mine that has stuck with me and will continue to be a part of my future. 2014 marked a turning point in my jiu jitsu journey. It was not only a hobby, it became a lifestyle and a profession I wanted to pursue.

I am now a certified instructor and enjoy being able to inspire others on and off the mats. When I am not on the mats I can be found reading, spending time with friends and family, and improving my physical fitness.

"I can see the change jiu jitsu brings into people’s lives. Whether it improves fitness, enlarges their social circle, or improves motivation and confidence. There’s always room for forward progression, and jiu jitsu can inspire that in people in several ways."
