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.

Morning BJJ Training in CT

Monday Mornings 6AM Jiu-Jitsu class was all about arm-bars from side control. In Jiu-Jitsu the side control position offers you a very stable position where the bottom bjj player has only a few low percentage techniques to submit you where you the top Jiu-Jitsu player have a number of very high percentage techniques. At Crossroads BJJ in CT we cover all of the need-to-know arm-bars in our Fundamentals Curriculum. In this class we focused on the far-side armbar. 

While the 6AM Jiu-Jitsu class at Crossroads BJJ in CT is a group class we make sure each and every student in the class walks away understanding the techniques we are covering so that the next time we drill a particular technique they remember what they learned and can continue adding details to the move and thereby increasing their depth of knowledge. The additional benefit of covering a technique in multiple classes is that you continue to improve your muscle memory. To be able to perform a Jiu-Jitsu technique in a high stress situation like a tournament or  on the street you must repeat that technique countless times. We finished the class with several rounds of drilling and sparring to make sure that everybody who came down to the gym got a good workout and to work on perfecting using our Jiu-Jitsu techniques under pressure.
