Savarese Jiu-Jitsu promotes blackbelts
Savarese Jiu-Jitsu promotes blackbelts Danny Lleonart and Anthony DelGuercio thursday night at the end of a Rafael Lovato Jr. seminar. The pair, both training under Professor Chris Savarese for more than 10 years, received the honor in front of many of their teammates to great applause. Savarese surprised the pair at the idea of Professor Lovato and everyone’s surprise.
Statement from Anthony:
Tonight is a very special night for me. After many years of training, Professor Chris Savarese promoted me to black belt.
To put this in perspective, obtaining my black belt took me more time than it took me to attend college and obtain my law degree. Obtaining my black belt was also far more difficult and rewarding.
As I have said time and time again, if not for jiu jitsu, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Few things have shaped my life more than jiu jitsu. It has instilled discipline, been there in my darkest hours, helped me with weight loss, and has been the ultimate sanctuary on my worst of days.
To put it in further perspective, while I was honored to make partner at my law firm, I cherish this black belt far more than my partnership.
I am humbled and honored by this promotion, and I thank Professor Sav.
Next, congratulations to Danny Newskin Savbjj for his promotion to black belt! Well deserved!
