Jiu Jitsu world Champions stop by Savarese BJJ Lyndhurst
2 Jiu Jitsu world Champions stopped by Savarese BJJ Lyndhurst to train today. They were on their way to the Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) Submission Wrestling World Championship. World Champions Rafael Lovato Jr and his student Justin Rader were on their way to England for the ADCC 2011 and made a stop in NJ to train with Professor Chris Savarese. Rather than rest, they decided to get a last training session in at Savarese’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Lyndhurst, NJ. Lovato had this to say ” I stopped in NJ on my way to England to see my East coast brother Chris Savarese to take us to his mats. We had a great technical session, tightened some things up and I had a blast hanging with the funniest guy I know. I can’t get enough of his stories and the accent to go with it is priceless! Thanks Sav!”
