waterfront summer movie series at Jack London Square. The EBBC encourages attendees to bike to the event so they can take advantage of the opportunity to equip their bikes for a safe, visible ride home that night after the screening. Secure bike parking will be provided at the event.
Founded by master trainer Sergio Silva, Team Silva Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu arms students with the grapples and fitness techniques needed to get in shape or tackle competitors. Adult programs delve into the takedowns and strikes of mixed martial arts, jujitsu, and muay thai kickboxing, and women's classes range from yoga to fighting-themed fitness. Tykes can begin learning self-defense and discipline with muay thai lessons, gaining the swift, precise movements to fend off playground bullies or rebuff roving packs of feral kindergartners. A safe and encouraging environment, the Alameda studio lines its walls with cushions and trained coaches who oversee classes and open-mat sessions where students practice their martial-arts techniques or pickup lines.

Thrill seekers can rev up the brushless electric motor of the Xingyue TDR 826z, throw their things in the front basket, and cruise through town, or they can hop on a midsize Xingyue TDP 2492 equipped with cruise control, side mirrors, and a horn for answering the call of over-excited, arm-pumping semi drivers.
