If you are looking to learn the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu this academy has got alot of the best trainers and techniques. The head Professor Sergio wins a lot of black belt tournaments.. his in depth knowledge of BJJ can not be found at to many places. I would say he is a black belt of black belts as he has so much experience competing and coaching. Also it is a really down to earth academy with friendly people who are cool to train with.

Wonderful, welcoming academy for all ages, abilities, fitness levels and goals. From Sergio down and across the board, everyone is approachable, welcoming, respectful and genuinely interested in making everyone else's experience as rich and rewarding as possible. If you're nervous about whether this is the right place or the right way to get fit and learn to protect yourself and your family, stop: you've found it.

Amazing local business. Generous to the community, nurturing for both adults and especially children, young adults. They offer both self-defense proper and fitness approaches. They also have a sister yoga studio next door that accommodates moms-to-be, heated, mommy and child, advanced, beginner, etc. level yoga practices. I would encourage all Alamedians to visit Team Silva and Alameda Yoga.

My only regret is that I didn't start training here earlier! Its the perfect location for BJJ and Yoga... what a perfect combination. Sergio always welcomes you with a smile and makes you feel part of the bjj family instantly.
I will miss this place dearly since I'm moving to SoCal.

Learn how to make the right choice in life is part of everyone’s character development and formation and it is important to have positive influence around us to help along the process. For kids, and especially for kids, is no different. They are always looking for examples to follow, always trying to learn and questioning about new things and how to do and to perform them.In our Kids Martial Arts program kids goes to an intense practice not only verbal but also non-verbal Self-Defense methods.Professor Sergio Silva was born and raised in South of Brazil in a town name Curitiba.In Curitiba in the early 80’s and beginning 90’s could be pretty worrisome for his parents.Both of professor Silva’s parents came from middle class and they would work very hard to keep the bread i the table and the education for their kids.

Kids are constantly being emerged into different scenarios with the assumption, trusted by parents that they will be learning and development new helpful skills and so on.

MARTIAL ARTS CURRICULUM ASSISTS KIDS ON MAKING GOOD CHOICES

Kids Martial Arts curriculum is well structured in a sense to help kids to develop skills and the thought process on how to choose and make the choice that fits their own character without feeling the pressure of friends and peers.

Alameda After School Program

“As Instructors, we are always discussing ways to improve decision making based on what is right and not what is right for them at any given moment. We also encourage every one of our students to express themselves as they are and with confidence, and to understand that they don’t need to “fit in” because they already do. We promote leadership and we challenge our students to become role models within their circle of friends and family. Doing this alone should avoid a lot of unnecessary problems and challenges in their future”, says  Head Instructor and Owner Sergio Silva.

It is important for every child to have positive influence all around him/her. Parents spend a lot of time away from their children and a martial arts program can assist on leveraging the right and positive influence to reinforce what they are learning at home.At our dojo kids not only improve their Martial Arts skills but also learn how important our life skills really is:Focus it’s usually the first word that we work with each child at their first weeks at our Martial arts Academy in Alameda!
