Alameda Business Buzz: Fire and water
Team Silva Priorities


Janice Worthen
Yoga Alameda

Yoga Alameda and Team Silva Brazilian Jiu Jitsu open in a new Park Street location next week. Photo by Janice Worthen.

After a long and frustrating renovation of the old A-1 Vacuum & Sewing location on Park Street, Sergio Silva of Team Silva Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and his wife, Rebecca Trissell of Yoga Alameda, are planning to open their his-and-hers studio Tuesday.

Yoga Alameda will be open on Saturday during Park Street’s customer appreciation event (more on that below) to sell passes for a month of unlimited yoga for $75. Both businesses will open officially on Tuesday.

The couple hoped to open their joint studio last weekend, but had to push their opening date forward due to another setback in a series of setbacks: The city told the couple they wouldn’t be able to provide a final inspection of the studio until Monday – or later (Trissell was able to call and get an earlier inspection). Meanwhile, Trissell said she and her husband have been losing money and business waiting for the city’s approval.

Although both knew that opening their own place would take time and money, neither Silva nor Trissell was prepared for just how much of both they’d have to spend. Trissell said the whole process was like having another baby; she and Silva have a 5-year-old son and an 11-month-old daughter.

Silva and Trissell have dreamed of having their own space for a long time. Silva, who has won martial arts tournaments and taught others who went on to be champions themselves, has been teaching Brazilian jiu jitsu since 1993. Trissell has practiced yoga since 1998 and has been teaching since 2007. The couple had been renting studio space on Lincoln Avenue, but they struggled to accommodate both businesses in that location: Trissell said she often had to have her yoga classes at random times to work around Silva’s martial arts classes.

Silva said they envisioned a place where martial arts and yoga, or “fire and water” as he put it, could exist together, but the reality has not met their vision just yet. With the renovation of the Park Street location behind them, Silva is excited that the couple’s vision is now closer to being realized.

Silva said the couple had to bring in an architect first who could provide a plan for the renovation, and Trissell said it took more than a month and a half to get all the necessary permits before work could even start; it took at least six weeks for the city to rezone the space because their businesses are not retail or restaurants, and it took another five weeks to get the building permits.
Beginnerbjj

Trissell said Park Street is Alameda’s little gem, and because it is an historic area, there were many things they had to do to preserve the space and bring it up to code in addition to building an ADA-approved bathroom. Silva said the wait for permits was so hard because it made it difficult to hold on to contractors who couldn’t or wouldn’t wait for the permits to come in. Silva and Trissell also didn’t negotiate a long enough rent deferral and have had to pay rent on their space without being able to use it.

Team Silva Truth

Trissell said their inability to provide an exact opening date has also been hard on customers; she has announced their opening on her business’s Facebook page only to have to apologize when they couldn’t honor the date. During the renovation, Silva’s and Trissell’s customers have had to travel to Silva’s Hayward studio or put their sessions on hold until the new location opened.

Team Silva Tie One On

City Planner Andrew Thomas said he felt the process went smoothly from the city’s end, though he acknowledged that people who are new to the planning and permitting process are often surprised by how complex it is. Thomas said business owners have many state and city codes to meet, and while it’s not easy to build in California, he said the city tries to move things along as quickly as possible because Alameda wants small businesses to open here.


Team Silva Gentle Art


Since the studio wasn’t listed among the uses that are already permitted on Park Street, the process took a little longer than it may have for another type of business because the city is required to provide notice that a new use has been proposed and to obtain feedback from other business owners nearby.

The department is working to process a growing number of building permits without the staff it once employed; half the staff in the city’s planning department was laid off during the recession, in 2009, and the department is wholly funded by the revenue it takes in. Still, Thomas said the city has initiated a new program, “Alameda at Your Service,” intended to make the process run more smoothly for business owners.

TEAM1

Silva said he understands that everything needs to be perfect because of the historic location they chose but that the wait time for permits and the costs of renovating a space on Park Street make it hard for new businesses to get on their feet. Trissell said she has a new respect for what businesses have gone through to be able to operate.

Both Silva and Trissell want the joint space to be family-centered, and Silva said the new location better accommodates this vision because there are so many things for kids to do on and around Park Street. Trissell said the couple will offer a “play date” for children while their parents practice yoga or martial arts. They’ll also offer classes for the whole family, which are hard to find anywhere else: Their offerings will include classes for toddlers in both martial arts and yoga, and Trissell provides yoga for pregnant women as a registered prenatal yoga teacher.

Trissell said that many people in the area have high-stress jobs, and her yoga classes and Silva's martial arts classes provide an opportunity for people to put things on pause and reconnect with their bodies.

Team Silva Kidas Fair Play

"This is a place where the community and families can come together and have fitness fun and activities. All age levels and abilities welcome," she said.

What's Jiu Jitsu

Brazillian jiu-jitsu is a martial art derived from Japanese judo. Prior to the early 20th century there were many schools of jiu-jitsu in Japan each with different emphasis and philosophy.
 
This period, known as the Meiji restoration, was a time rapid change in Japan. The focus of the new government was for Japan to take its place in the world as a modern nation. Part of this modernization involved an effort by the Japanese government for Japan to participate in the modern Olympic movement and have its national sport – the grappling art jiu-jitsu – accepted as an Olympic sport. Under the auspices of Professor Jigaro Kano and his Kodokan organization the rules and techniques of jiu-jitsu gentle art), which he called judo(gentle way or path), were codified and taught throughout Japan and the world by his student emissaries and teachers. His students were forbidden from fighting or wrestling professionally. One of his premier students, Mitsuyo Maeda, in fact did fight and wrestle professionally throughout Europe, the United States, Cuba, Mexico and Brazil.
 
Maeda is said to have fought nearly 1000 no holds barred matches in his lifetime and was never defeated. He incorporated the techniques of his most difficult opponents into his style of jiu-jitsu. If you watch a high level Brazillian jiu-jitsu match today you will see Greco-Roman, freestyle and catch wrestling techniques integrated with modern judo and pre 20th century Japanese jiu-jitsu. 
 
Maeda settled in Brazil and taught his art there until his death in 1941. He taught the sons of his friend Gastão Gracie as well as other Brazillians. Carlos and Helio Gracie, the most famous sons of Gastao, were known for accepting the challenge of any type of fighter and defeating them. With their many progeny they practiced, taught and promoted their art throughout Brazil for the entirety of the 20th century.  This art came to be known as Gracie jiu-jitsu or Brazillian jiu-jitsu. The focus of Brazillian jiu-jitsu is on ground fighting. The effectiveness of this approach in one on one combat was shown to the world outside of Brazil in 1993 at UFC 1.
 
Helio Gracie’s son Royce at 185 lbs defeated all comers by submission using integrated arm and leg attacks against his much larger opponents. This is the hallmark of Brazillian jiu-jitsu; to submit the opponent using coordinated, leveraged arm and leg techniques without leaving permanent injury unless necessary.

You can also start your Martial Arts Journey learning the beauty of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and take for yourself and your family all the benefits that come with it.
You will learn Self-Defense,get in the best shape of your life and boost your confidence level in just in
few weeks of training.

Alameda Teens Anti Bullying

Hi there,my name is Sergio Silva and I have been teaching Teens Anti-Bullying practice for over 20 years. I have done speech in several public schools. I was born in raised in South of America,Brazil.

One of the most important thing we emphasis in our program is the use of our verbal self-defense 101 and the building of individual confidence.


Graduation2014peeps



Here are some of the reasons that you should enroll your teenager at our Martial Arts Academy.

1-Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the World's most effective Martial Arts.
2-Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year.
3-Bullies are everywhere,at school,at the park,local swimming pool and everywhere kids tent to play and have fun it will always be one kid that has some sort of natural advantage and he/she will take that advantage to be in superior stage no respecting anyone's boundaries or rules.Bullies always believe that they are invincible or they can get rid of any major arguments.
4-Approximately 160,000 teens skip school every day because of bullying.
5-Build an unstoppable confidence in your child to always keep their head up with posture,speaking for themselves and give tools to them to not only defend themselves if they need to.
6-17% of American students report being bullied 2 to 3 times a month or more within a school semester. Take a stand in your community by hosting a Bullying Policy Makeover event customizing your school’s anti-bullying policy.
7-Keep your teenager in shape while learning the principles of our Life Skills 101 program:Focus,Discipline,Family,Confidence,Teamwork,Manners,Balance and much more.
8--1 in 4 teachers see nothing wrong with bullying and will only intervene 4% of the time.
9-It's always amazes when our current Jiu-Jitsu teens come to us to let us know that someone have been pushing their buttons for over weeks and nobody does anything.We always tell our kids:"Make sure always let the bully know that you don't like what he/she did and kindly asked them to not ever do that again..."Then go tell the teacher.
10-Over 67% of students believe that schools respond poorly to bullying, with a high percentage of students believing that adult help is infrequent and ineffective.We go back to the old story of the parent telling their child to go take the issue to the teacher. A lot of teachers let it pass just stating that they are kids and kids will do what kids do.
11--71% of students report incidents of bullying as a problem at their school.That's a very high %!
12--90% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying.
13--1 in 10 students drop out of school because of repeated bullying.
14-As boys age they are less and less likely to feel sympathy for victims of bullying. In fact they are more likely to add to the problem than solve it.
15-Physical bullying increases in elementary school, peaks in middle school and declines in high school. Verbal abuse, on the other hand, remains constant.
16-Give your teen a powerful tool that they will take for their life time.Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an amazing Martial Arts besides been one of the strongest sport growing in the World.It's always compare with Chess for the critical thinking about moves and the power of the decision making rule where you have a consequence with each move that you are applying. Engineers,software business tech people are usually very interested with the beauty of this amazing Martial Arts of BJJ. Facts About Bullying Bullying is being mean to another kid over and over again. Bullying often includes: -Teasing Talking about hurting someone -Spreading rumors -Leaving kids out on purpose -Attacking someone by hitting them or yelling at them -Bullying does not always happen in person. Cyber bullying is a type of bullying that happens online or through text messages or emails. It includes posting rumors on sites like Facebook, sharing embarrassing pictures or videos, and making fake profiles or websites.
