About Us

Alexander Herbig – Head Coach

I started training grappling when I was around 3 years old (ok, to be more accurate, I crawled onto the mat with Mike), and have been rolling, studying, learning, teaching, growing and leading ever since.

I have found a passion and a calling in teaching, and leading youths and adults to live a functional and upright life through disciplined exercise, movement, mobility, and accountable study, using Godly principles found in Scripture, and taught in easy to understand, and simple to apply ways in daily life and the physical world.

After studying movement, and the functioning of the human body in the art of grappling for more than two decades, I can definitely say that there is a lot more that we can learn about how we are created than we think.
(Gen 1:27)

“Teachers who LOVE TEACHING, shape students who LOVE LEARNING!”
To watch youth grow and apply the lessons that they learn from CJA is truly the greatest reward in my books. To see their lives change as they take what they find, and make it better is heart warming, and beyond fulfilling for us.

I’m generally studying, squatting, silent, or sweeping someone smoothly off their feet.
That all depends how you approach me 😀

“When ONE teaches, TWO learn.”
