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.

CT BJJ: The X-Guard

If your a fan of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) then you may be familiar with a position called the guard. The guard is a position that was invented in the martial art of judo and refined further in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu where ground fighting makes up a majority of the techniques you learn based on the simple fact that in a street fight 75% of altercations end up on the ground. 

This week in our Gi classes we are wrapping up our unit on the X-Guard coving another entry, as well as 3 submissions and just a few more sweeps! The goal of this unit was to provide a solid introduction to the X-Guard, providing all of the students at Crossroads BJJ multiple enties into the position and an array of sweeps and submissions!

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is alway evolving, new techniques are always being developed so one of the main goals of Crossroads Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is to give our students the understanding of modern Jiu-Jitsu while providing strong basics that are simple enough to use in even the most stressful situations. 

If you are interested in learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and live in the Groton, New London area, come down and watch or try a class. Learn the skills that could save your life while learning the art that will change your life!
