Family Bonds Through Team Silva Martial Arts Training

Alameda, California (EastBayDaily) — What creates a greater emotional bond within a family and helps them stay together? It’s spending time playing activities together. The old phrase, “A family that plays together stays together” was coined for a reason. Families in Alameda, CA have been adding new meaning to this phrase.

At Team Silva Martial Arts Center a number of families enjoy practicing and learning martial arts together. In 2009 the Soltero family Jose, Andrea Soltero and their three kids joined Team Silva Martial Arts. They found out that Team Silva Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers not only Children Martial Arts but also a competitive and top notch Grappling classes to all ages and levels. Once they did a few classes together they all became hooked to the BJJ and yoga programs. The Solteros even went on to compete in local tournaments together like Jiu-Jitsu by the Bay and Bay Area Championships.

The Solteros are just one example of the many families that take advantage of the safe, fun, family friendly environment of Team Silva. Because most of our instructors are fathers and mothers themselves they understand the importance of family and connecting together with activities. Not only do these families spend time together they are able to exercise maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Team Silva encourages and welcomes families by providing classes for all levels, ages and abilities, even babies through their mom and baby yoga program. Team Silva offers classes for toddles 2-4, kids 5-10, and teens 11-15, and adults. Family Martial Arts classes are held every Saturday from 12pm-2pm in Alameda or in our Hayward Academy. On Saturdays Team Silva Alameda offers Toddler Samurai Class from 9:15-10:00. All ages and levels are welcome to participate at Team Silva Jiu-Jitsu Classes. Team Silva is dedicated to keeping a safe, warm, and welcoming environment for everyone.
