Great job guys!!!We are so proud of your dedication and hard work before and during this tournament. Congrats to Coaches Chris Savarese and Sean Bermudez on the great showing. Our kids program is growing and growing and we look forward to everyone’s future in our Academy. Grapplers Quest is one of the best tournaments in the country and to have this kind of a showing is just absolutely incredible. We thank those who didn’t compete this time for helping the others train for this tournament and being great teammates. We are sure that those who competed this time will return the favor when you compete.

Interested in Savarese BJJ?

If you are interested in your child joining our fast rising program, call 201 933-5134 or email us at for more info on our elite program. We are big believers in our children facing fears, we teach them “face the fear and the fear disappears” and we are so proud of the results. We have had students who join the Academy as shy or not confident children and watched them transform before our eyes. It is so rewarding to see the results and then watch the children help the new children in the class when they start. Competition is not for everyone but we are happy when the child chooses (we do not push them to compete) because that shows us that the face in gone. That is much more important to us than winning or losing the match.

RGDA in Grapplers Quest’s Top 10 Teams of the Decade

RGDA in Grapplers Quest’s Top 10 Teams of the Decade

RGDA Breaks TOP 10 in Grapplers Quest’s Teams of the Decade!!! Congratulations to the Royler Gracie/David Adiv Team (RGDA) and all the Teams that have made to Grapplers Quests events throughout these years. We truly respect and appreciate each of the teams that have pushed our few competitors to train harder and to constantly improve. With more schools coming up and our current school growing, I honestly believe with our instruction and better attention to detail in putting our team name on the sign-in sheets, we will do even better in the decade to come. Our team is still quite small, the fact that we made it into the top 10 is remarkable and a testament to the hard work of Royler Gracie, David Adiv, Rosendo Diaz and Chris Savarese for all their hard work in making our team great.

Thank You GQ!

A big thank you to the Grapplers Quest organization for providing us and the grappling community opportunities to compete. Look forward to the next 10 years!
