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.

50-50 Guard Seminar with Eric Spicely

Last week Future UFC standout and current Undefeated Mixed Martial artist Eric Spicely Traveled from Rhode Island to New London County Connecticut to teach an amazing seminar on the 50-50 guard, one of the newest innovations in Modern BJJ.

Eric was able to effectively able to teach several entries into the position allowing you to score points for the Sweep, and secure the position and set up the submission! A common misconception about the 50-50 guard is that both people are vulnerable to foot lock submissions. Eric was able to show several details that allow you to hold your opponent in the position while keeping yourself safe from your opponents submissions. This idea is one of the fundamental ideals of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, keeping your opponent in a position where you can not be harmed by his attacks, and you have the ability to end the fight with a submission.

Eric also went into great detail showing  the students of Crossroads Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu several submissions from the 50-50 position, ranging from straight ankle locks, toe-holds, knee bars and heel hooks. Understanding how and when to attack a wide range of submissions from one position is a great way to understand how to flow within a position while looking for the submission.
