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.

Why Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is good for Kids and Adults ! Start training BJJ with us today in Alameda!

 

 

BJJ balances the aspects of sport BJJ (competition) and self-defense (street) BJJ so that all participants can use their skills when required. Self-defense is important for anyone, but especially for a child. … They will develop the ability to take an attacker to the ground and control them.Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ how a lot of enthusiastic call it for it’s considered the World’s most effective Martial Arts program in the moment and it’s for sure the fastest growing Martial Arts in the moment.

 

Good Habits
Okay, let’s start with the simple fact that BJJ actually creates good habits and removes bad ones.
For example, I used to spend hours playing video games, watching TV, and just hanging with friends. After I started BJJ, I found my lifestyle slowly began to change. I stopped wasting time playing videos games and doing mindless things. I slept better, woke up more refreshed, and I was hungry for a healthy breakfast. I started paying more attention to what I ate, had more energy, and started to feel strong and far more confident. I also noticed I was sharper mentally!BJJ helps you have faster and better decision making.A lot of times you hear people comparing BJJ with Chess because every move there is a very solid consequence to it.Professor Silva states:

 

“”One the best decisions of my life was starting training BJJ in Curitiba,Brasil.I was young,innocent and with a lot of hunger to learn ”

 

Friendships
I guarantee your kids will make new awesome friends! The social aspect of BJJ is the meeting of new people and making new friends that have the same thing in common. I can tell you, I have made lots of great friendships that will likely last a lifetime. BJJ friends are different than the ones you have at school. It’s hard to explain, but there is a certain wolf pack team vibe, especially when we all compete together at tournaments.There is a huge amount of trust into BJJ because you are relying in your partner to let it go when they get into a submission hold and that level of trust it’s very difficult to find in any other sport .

 

 

 

Real-World Self-Defense And Anti-Bullying
Let’s not forget that BJJ is actually one of the best real world self-defense systems! For kids it is also a great anti-bulling skill. I had my experiences with bullies, so I know first hand the value that BJJ gives us when confronting cowards! I no longer get
bullied.I believe now as a parent one of the hardest thing to imagine is how my child will respond when I’m not there.How my child will defend himself/herself if we are not around. BJJ helps kids and adults to make the fast best decision.
In conclusion, I find BJJ to be unique and life changing! It’s great for kids and adults. I hope you give it a try. I’m sure your family will love it! Take the time to research for a good BJJ academy in your area. If you have any questions, I can try to help. You can contact me via my page on Facebook.
