Crossroads Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Learn Realistic Self Defense


Proven effectiveness 

80% of all street fights end up on the ground- Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches you how to ensure your safety when this happens, and more-so, how to use ground fighting to your advantage to escape a fight situation safely and without permanently injuring your attacker. We all want to see tomorrow, and jiujitsu gives you a leg up I making that happen when things take a turn for the worse. First and foremost, we teach aggression avoidance, but when the action is unavoidable, you need to know what to do to make it home safe and we’ll teach you how.


At Crossroads Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu you will learn everything you need to know to keep yourself and your family safe in a self defense situation. From simple tactics to avoid a fight to what you need to do to avoid being hit while neutralizing an attacker.


Crossroads Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is definitely a place you go to learn, and do something not everyone gets to do in their lifetime. The Instructor, Dustin Rhodes, is phenomenal in his presentation in the art on a daily basis. This Martial Art form is ground based, but he also has instructors that are good friends who come teach takedowns. This isn't a trophy school or a take a test and earn a belt school. The school is all about learning new things. The atmosphere is welcoming, and the senior students are always willing to help out

Instructor Dustin Rhodes truly epitomizes the belief that one doesn't have to be the biggest , nor strongest man to win the fight ! This is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Dustin does an amazing job instructing the art so that those of all levels of training may properly understand and apply the techniques properly . Crossroads BJJ is an affiliate of Tim Burrill Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, as Dustin holds the rank of Brown Belt under Carlos Machado Black Belt Tim Burrill . Dustin is and always will be someone I look up to as a mentor and a friend as I continue to progress in my personal journey of BJJ ! If you live in CT. I highly recommend taking a class and checking out Crossroads BJJ
