Gracie Jiu-Jitsu legend teaches in Lyndhurst NJ
It was a great night last night at Savarese Jiu-Jitsu on Park Ave as a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu legend teaches in Lyndhurst NJ. Master Royler Gracie, son of the founder of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Helio Gracie, taught at the Savarsese BJJ Academy (www.njbjj.com) at the Academy of Professor Chris Savarese, who earned his blackbelt from Gracie in 2006. Master Gracie said it was an honor to teach on the mats of one of his blackbelts and many other Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelts from NJ showed up to learn from the great Master. The theme of the seminar was “don’t let anyone steal your time” and told of many life lessons that go well beyond the scope of just self-defense. The 3 hour long seminar focus on mindset, self-defense, some groundfighting (the staple of jiu-jitsu), submission holds and takedowns. Gracie then took questions from the many in the crowd to help fix problems in their jiu-jitsu technique or gave some tips of topics such as every day self defense and BJJ competition.

If you are a BJJ practitioner, never miss an opportunity to learn from one of the greats like him, it is a unique opportunity to learn in so many different ways.
