Good Enough For Chuck Norris...


Is there a better endorsement as a teacher of the martial arts, than to have Chuck Norris as a student? If there is, I can’t think of one. Now imagine the very same teacher wants to teach you (yes, I’m talking to you reader) the same things he’s taught Mr. Spinning Roundhouse! Not possible you say, surely we’re joking. Not in the slightest, and in less than two weeks’ time, everyone in southeastern New England will have the opportunity to learn from one of the living legends of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, when Master Carlos Machado comes to Crossroads BJJ on Saturday, January 30th at 4pm to share his knowledge and techniques with us for over 3 hours. Carlos is one of the highest ranking BJJ practitioners in the US, holding a 9th degree coral belt of prestigious lineage. In fact, Carlos is only 3 degrees of separation from the originator of our art, Mitsuyo Maeda (Maeda> Carlos Gracie>Carlos Gracie Jr>Carlos Machado) it doesn’t get much closer to the source than that! Crossroads is fortunate that Carlos is making the long trip up from his home base in Texas to teach us techniques and concepts that everyone can integrate into their game, from white to black belt.

Don’t let this opportunity pass you by, call Dustin Rhodes, head instructor at Crossroads at (860) 235-0026 to reserve your spot to learn from the very best. Space is limited, so don’t miss this great opportunity, the knowledge gained will stay with you for the rest of your life, and if it’s good enough for Chuck, you know it’s going to be great!
