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.

Tuesday Night Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitu Class – CT BJJ

Today during our Crossroads BJJ Kids Class we continued working on balance and movement drills. Our Children are growing at a rapid rate, which can cause them to become uncoordinated, and this lack of coordination can lead to problems with their self confidence, which can lead to them being bullied in school and all of the problems associated with bullying. By helping the children in our Kids BJJ program develop core strength and understand how their bodies move they will naturally have more confidence in themselves.
After we finished our warm up we went into the technique portion of BJJ. Today we worked arm drags with the children, followed by re-drags from the standing position. Talking with the kids on why getting behind somebody and simply holding onto them or “controlling” them is the safest place they can be if somebody is ever trying to hurt them. The emphasis in our Kids BJJ program is for our students to never to hurt another child, even a bully, but always to simply keep themselves safe.

Once we worked the arm drag and re-drag, we worked the same move on the ground breaking down the technique into 4 simple steps. After that we worked on what to do if somebody does get to their back. and ended with some great work on the indo board and some science questions!

If your interested in getting your child down to Crossroads BJJ to try out a class simply Call 860-235-0026 or Email Head Instructor and BJJ Black Belt Dustin Rhodes at [email protected]. You will be simply amazed at how our Kids BJJ program can help your child in every aspect of their life.
