Had a great time with the folks at crossroads BJJ gym. I'm a visitor from out of town and the welcomed me in. No attitudes nothing but friendly folks! Their professor Dustin Rhodes is very knowledgeable and inviting. I got a chance to roll with him and even though he could shut me down with every move you was light and respectful of my abilities. This is reflected in his students. Not one meathead in the bunch �. Any way, top notch. Thanks for letting me train with you all!

Cool men and women that enjoy learning and helping one another get better. Quality of instruction is very good, and it’s obvious that a lot of care is put into the development of the trainees. Nothing is free so you’ll have to put in the time on the mats to progress. Be prepared to discover the many stages of white belt. Great exercise and a lot of fun learning a useable skill that not many people out there know.

Injury Free Jiu-jitsu

Injury Free Jiu-Jitsu
 
One of the reasons Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is such an effective Martial Art is because of the way it is practiced. Unlike striking arts, Jiu-jitsu techniques can be practiced at full speed without risk of injury to you or your training partner. In BJJ, anyone can simply Tap out if they are caught in a submission at any time. Tapping out allows everybody to train safely while continuing to improve with every practice, and the more you practice the better you get.
 
Most people who are thinking about trying jiu-jtiu often expect to walk into their first class and get “beat up”. They will leave their first class with some kind of injury or looking like the loser of a UFC fight. This couldn’t be further from the Truth, In jiu-jitsu, the more you practice the better you get, and the more experienced your training partners are the faster your jiu-jitsu will improve.  If every new student who walked in the door got beat to a pulp, the entire school would suffer.
