“This place is truly amazing. We enrolled my son when he was 6 and the instructors are all so wonderful. The kids learn respect, discipline and have a great time while forming amazing bonds and friendships with the other kids as well as the instructors.

We loved it so much here my husband and I joined shortly after. Everyone is so welcoming and supportive you can’t help but feel like part of a family. I highly recommend Atos to anyone, any skill level or age you will not be disappointed.” – Rachel G.


“If you’re looking for a gym whether you’ve never done jiu jitsu , or you’re a competitive athlete, this is the place. I especially recommend this school as a woman, since there’s an incredibly supportive and welcoming group of ladies. The environment here is condusive to rapid learning yet still having fun training. Every instructor is knowledgeable and having so many different instructors with their respective stylistic differences is a game changer. Highly recommend. Ladies, drop by the women’s class every Tuesday and Thursday night at 5:45!!” – Amanda B.


“My husband, daughter, and I joined this gym a few months ago and have had a great experience so far. I was a little skeptical but I did the week trial and ended up loving it. I typically attend the evening basics class with Prof. Mike Carbullido and the Tu/Th women’s class with Prof. Angelica Galvao these instructors are nothing short of amazing. They are very welcoming and helpful to new students. The other students in the class have also been welcoming and nice especially when I let the higher belts know I have not been practicing for long. I highly recommend this gym to anyone looking to start BJJ!” – Laura A.

“Atos is one of the best places to train jiu jitsu in the entire world. Since being here for only a few months, I met so many people who have moved their lives from another state or another country to be in San Diego just to train at Atos!  This place truly does live up to its name with top notch training from Professors Andre and Angelica Galvao.

I have enjoyed every class I’ve taken here. Every instructor is always clear and breaks down each technique so anyone can understand and learn.  Questions are always encouraged here.  The other students are super supportive and welcome every new member that steps in through the front doors as well.  I would highly recommend Atos for anyone, whether you have experience with jiu jitsu or if you’re just looking for the right place to start!” – Anna L.
