The Minnesota River Bluffs new home for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
River city Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is owned and operated by Alliance Jiu Jitsu black belt, and Winona native, Erik Miner. Erik moved from Winona to the twin cities to study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in 2005. Over these years, Erik competed all over the country and medaled in numerous regional, international and world tournaments. He has been fortunate enough to have spent time training with dozens of world champions, Olympic level grapplers and NCAA national champions. Erik and his family moved to Winona in 2021 to raise their family and open a gym to share the Jiu Jitsu lifestyle with the community he grew up in.
I am very excited to be back in Winona after all of these years. I grew up loving the outdoors, but taking for granted the natural beauty and rich life that is at our fingertips here. Each time I would return to Winona, it would set in a little more of how great of an area this really is. The Alliance Jiu Jitsu gym that I have been fortunate to be a part of has wholeheartedly revolutionized every aspect of my life. My goal is to share that culture and lifestyle with the people in the Winona area in an extremely friendly and welcoming environment. If you have ever considered jiu jitsu, please contact us!
