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 BJJ – CT BJJ

Today during our Kids Martial Arts and Self Defense program we continued to work on Balance and Flexibility after we finished our warm up. At Crossroads we try to make sure that the kids in our Marital Arts Program are developing higher levels of coordination each and every class. If you want to be able to Defend yourself from a Bully, you need to understand how your body moves. One of the main warm up drills with the Kids teaches them to learn how to move a bully is trying to grab you so that they can control the situation and protect themselves. We then worked a very simple way to get a bully to the ground and control them! All of the kids really got the technique down and were having a lot of fun practicing the new Brazilian jiu-jitsu technique. Of course getting into a physical altercation with another student is always the last resort, and while we talk about ways to deescalate a potential fight, in some situations your child will need to know how to defend themselves. The confidences your child will gain from knowing he or she doesn’t have to be intimidated by a bully is life changing. Bullies will always target a student he or she perceives to be weaker then themselves, and seeing another kid who is not intimidate by them and carries him or herself with confidences is something that tend to not bother with.
As always we ended the class with balancing games and some open mat time for everybody to have some of fun after Jiu-Jitsu!
