Rafael Lovato Jr Lyndhurst NJ BJJ seminar
Rafael Lovato Jr taught a Lyndhurst NJ BJJ seminar at the Savarese BJJ Academy last night. Lovato, the 2007 World Jiu-Jitsu and 3x No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu Champion, took to the mats of his good friend Professor Chris Savarese’s school to teach to the over 50 students in attendance.
Professor Savarese’s thoughts
Savarese had this to say after the seminar. “Thanks to Rafael Lovato Jr. for teaching a truly awesome seminar at my Academy last night. First of all, for making it a night to remember for all of us. Futhermore, the seminar was so useful for any BJJ practitioner as he taught some great framing defenses from the guard. These defenses can be useful in other positions as well. Also, he gave of the finer details of the passing and mount attacks and subs that have been working so well for him in competition for the past year.
It was a true teaching seminar that taught concepts and not just moves. Hence, it was one of my favorites that he has done here. To make the night even more special, he recognized the talent of our room and the hard work of the instructors and I. I was then presented with the Lovato Jiu-Jitsu Association Instructor Of The Year Award. Professor Rafael spoke movingly of the success we had through a personal health battle I encountered. Since I was on the mats with my students, I was very touched and honored to have that moment.. Also, because our association has some amazing, world class instructors whom I greatly respect. Therefore, I am honored to represent our association. Thank you to Professor Lovato and everyone for a great night of learning Jiu-Jitsu.”
