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.

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.
