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.

Kids Martial Arts and Self Defense in Connecticut

Since the main focus of our Kids self defense program is teaching your child how to be safe and how to protect themselves against bullies todays class focused on how to get a bully down onto the ground where a smaller child can control them until help comes without getting punched or kicked.
The focus of the Crossroads Kids Martial arts and Self Defense classes is to teach our students how to protect themselves and in jiu-jitsu that means getting the bully down onto the ground and then positionally controlling him until he or she is tired and no longer wants to fight. So today we focused on simple ways to get the bully down onto the ground, making sure that each child understood and could close the distance and then get a big penetration step making the takedown Easy against somebody much larger than them. Once we were on the ground we reviewed how to hold the side control position and how to make sure you don’t get rolled over.
