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.

Thursday Night Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Class – CT BJJ

Thursday’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class started with a good warm up and then went right in to the technical portion of class. We started work from the stand up position working from one of the most common situations in a street fight, the headlock position. There are several different ways to escape the headlock positions, today we went over how to escape using your training partners energy to break your posture in order to bring the fight to the ground and land in the top position.  After that we worked a submission from side control called the paper cutter choke and how to defend it. Once everybody in class understood how to perform the submission and how to defend it we practiced the position with resistance to make sure we had learned all the details correctly.
The goal of the Brazilian Jiu-jitsu program at Crossroads in New London County is to take people who have no experience and in a few classes as possible give them the ability to defend themselves.By training each Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu position on its own we can use our mat time more efficiently because we are actually able to study the position and gain instant feedback. With this feedback we can make changes in minutes instead of whenever you happen to get back to same position again, which could not happen for the rest of practice. The goal of the Crossroads BJJ Curriculum and training methods have been chosen because of how fast they create skilled BJJ practitioners.
