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.

Braulio Estima Seminar Pictures

This Past June Crossroads Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu had the pleasure of hosting Braulio Estima for a two day seminar. Braulio not only brings 17 years of BJJ experience but also the techniques and mindset of a 5-time World Champion, Multiple time ADCC champion, and 5-Time European Champion. Beyond titles, Braulio was able to demonstrate the mentality of a true Martial Artist.
Day 1 Braulio broke down the concepts behind the choke,while focusing on the Triangle Choke. He covered the three different types of chokes, and what you are looking to finish each one. While covering triangles he went over what angles you need to find to be an effective finisher from the position. The seminar also covered reverse triangles, inverted triangles and reverted triangles.

Day 2 Braulio worked on guard passing and working to side control. In this seminar he covered what he refers to as “the Checkpoint”. Braulio went into great depth, showing what angles were needed and where to apply pressure to make ‘the Checkpoint” a great addition to every bodies skill set. It was great to see everybody working these concepts and being able to implement them over the 2 and a half hour seminar.

We have uploaded pictures from both days on the Crossroads Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Flickr page.
