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.

More Kimora’s at Crossroads BJJ

Tonight we started drilling Kimora’s from the bottom position! You’ve been put on your back, but the fight isn’t over. In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu the Guard offers us a wide array of sweeps and submissions, ways where we can defend ourselves even though to the common eye it appears that we are in an inferior position. In fact not getting submitted in a high level Jiu-Jitsu players guard can seem almost impossible, one wrong move and your tapping!  Luckily at Crossroads BJJ in New London County CT you’re training with your friends so all you have to do is tap and just start over!

The Kimora is a very versatile shoulder lock that can be applied from a number of positions, the grip itself forces your opponent or training to react and this reaction can create opportunities. In last nights class we worked on understanding how to apply the position properly and as well as a two potential escapes. These will be the building blocks for the next several weeks of class, so if you missed Monday make sure you get to class Wednesday when we will review how to generate more power in the submission and begin to add more submissions into the game!
