Team Silva BJJ Review


Danilo

"I came from Brazil to spend some time in California training jiu-jitsu. Since I arrived I'm training with Sergio and even knowing several academies from Brazil (birthplace of jiu-jitsu) I can say the TeamSilva BJJ is the one of the best places I already trained. The friendly atmosphere, the solids techniques taught and diversities in which you can test yourself, make it the perfect place for lovers of  martial arts, beginners or competitors. Tatame always very clean and perfect environment for practicing the martial art."




Luis Soltero

I could go on and on telling all the great things about this Academy so I will try to keep it short.  I have been a member, along with my two sons and my daughter, for over 4 years. At first I though this would be an awesome activity for my kids but when I started watching the training I thought "I can do this" the truth is I was nervous. I was still recovering from low back surgery so I wasn't sure this was a sport I would last more than a week.  Well I am still here and continue training and love the training!  When I met Sergio he made me feel welcome and suggested for me to give it a try, so I did.  Sergio is a world champion who has been training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for decades and he cares for his students making sure they learn everything 100%. Now with the new location they have more room, more classes, and more options such as Yoga and Capoeira.  Often times Sergio also offers kids programs for summer activities and Parents Night out!!!  Sergio isn't just a teacher he is an amazing professor and a great friend he opens the door and makes you feel part of his family.  Everyone who trains there learns to be humble and share their knowledge, with the ones who begin to learn I find myself doing that thanks to the foundation Sergio built in me and every person.  It is true what other people mentioned this place becomes your second family. 

BJJ has help me in many ways, to get strong and protect my body, to be humble, to learn a better way to be a better person with more confidence and respect for others. This type of martial arts is great for kids too and this Academy offers the people and the room to make kids feel comfortable and teaches them to gain confidence, learn respect and discipline.  

Be sure to check their website teamsilvabjj.com they have additional locations in other cities.  I have trained at one of the other locations and the people are humble and welcoming as well and great instructors who teach at either location different days of the week.

Thank you professor and friend Sergio Silva and thank you for providing a family oriented environment.  I am happy to be part of this family!

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.
