We went down with 5 whitebelts, 4 of who had NEVER competed before and every single guy came home with a medal around their neck!! Congrats to Alec DelVecchio, Mason Sullivan, Jerome Jardiniano, Rob Strydio and Diego Rivera who finished 2nd in the Whitebelt Absolute (no weight limit) as well despite weighing 180lbs. Thanks to all the upperbelts who came out and supported their teammates and showed what being an upperbelt is all about. Strength in numbers!!! Very proud of everyone!!!” Savarese is one of the 1st Americans to receive a blackbelt under 5-time World Jiu-Jitsu Champion Royler Gracie and is widely considered one of the top BJJ instructors on the East Coast by those in the BJJ community.
