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.

BJJ CT: Drill for Skill

To be successful in any aspect of life you must first have a strong belief that what you are doing will work, if you do not believe that you will achieve that goal you will not even attempt it. This is why one of the most essential pieces of BJJ is drilling, drilling is the act of repeating a particular technique or series of techniques over and over again until you can execute each detail of that Jiu-Jitsu technique without thinking about it. In bjj if you think you will be late, and if you are late the time to execute the bjj technique will have past. The more we repeat a technique the more we will believe in our own ability to be successful in implementing it. This confidents will result in performing the technique at the right time and this will result in being more successful.

Last night at Crossroads BJJ we drilled a north-south armbar using a very common Kimora grip. This grip allows you to attack a large number of submissions giving you the ability to maintain a very offensive style of Jiu-Jitsu. Sometimes the best defense is a good offense, and if your Jiu-Jitsu training partner is always reacting to your stacks it will be impossible for them to mount thier own attacks.  

If you would like to experience how Jiu-Jitsu can give you the confidence you need to not only defend yourself in a fight but also to live a happier and healthier life come down to Crossroads BJJ in New London County and try a few free classes. You will see first hand how all of our instructors and students are here to help you succeed.
