Elijah BJJ came to Savarese Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Lyndhurst for a friendly training session. This is the second time the academies have met in an effort to help each other become better at BJJ. Ideas and techniques were exchanged in order to help each team find their strengths and weaknesses. The two academies and their students have become friends along the way.
Professor Chris Savarese of Savarese Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Professor Tyrone Elijah of Elijah Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu have known and trained together for over 15 years. They brought their knowledge together to help their students. Professor Sean Bermudez, the head kids instructor at Savarese BJJ and one of the best kids instructors in NJ, lead the kids through the training session.
If you are looking for a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is what you are looking for. BJJ is of the belief that most altercations find their way to the ground. Making each student prepared to gain a dominant position and use joint-locks or choke holds to force the opponent to submit is the goal of BJJ.
BJJ instructors believe that a smaller, weaker person, using leverage and proper technique, can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant. BJJ can be trained for self defense on the street or in law enforcement situations, sport grappling tournaments, with the kimono and without, and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fights.
