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 should you train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in our Alameda Martial Arts Academy in Alameda!

 

Why should you train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in our Alameda Martial Arts Academy in Alameda!

 

Why should I train Jiu Jitsu?
Not only is BJJ a physical activity, but it’s a non-impact martial art. Unlike kickboxing, there are no punches or kicks in BJJ; one uses locks and chokes to subdue the opponent. This makes it very sneaky and lethal. It also makes it safer because you’re not risking being knocked out on every training.

 

 

Does Jiu Jitsu teach discipline?

Unlike other martial arts which teach violent punches and kicks, our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program utilizes non-violent holds which are only used as a LAST OPTION against a physically assaultive bully, while other programs may make children more aggressive, the Program promotes non-violence through respect, discipline,Confidence and Leadership.

 

 

When should kids start Jiu Jitsu?
In particular I have mainly taught kids as young as 2 1/2 to 100 years. In my experience, the closer you can get to four years old the better the chance your child will have a positive experience starting BJJ. There are a few key areas parents should consider when starting a BJJ class.Professor Sergio Silva has been training Martial Arts since 1982.In Judo was where he started and then went to Capoeira,Soccer and MMA(Mixed Martial Arts).

 

 

 

 

Is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu dangerous?
No. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is not dangerous. Scientific research shows that, BJJ is equally safe as many other sports. It is also the SAFEST Martial Art.

 

 

 

 

Is karate better than Jiu Jitsu?


Karate generally deals with self defense from a standing position. However, Jiu Jitsu is a martial art form that focuses on ground self defense. … Jiu Jitsu is defined as a martial art form that teaches a smaller, weaker opponent to defeat a bigger, stronger opponent by use of technique, leverage, and joint manipulation.

 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting, focusing on the skill of controlling one’s opponent through techniques that force him or her to submit.

 

We offer Martial Arts program in Bay Area at this beautiful East Bay City of Alameda in Alameda County.

Professor Sergio Silva is a 4th Degree Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and a Black Belt in Judo and a former World Champion of Submission Wrestling and Multiple Times National and International Champion of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.
