Are you looking for a Martial Arts school in the Kearny area? The Savarese Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy is your top choice. Located near Kearny in Lyndhurst NJ, Savarese Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is not only one of the top martial arts schools in Lyndhurst amd Kearny area, but one of the top Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academies in the country. Professor Chris Savarese is a 2nd degree BJJ blackbelt and owner and head instructor. He is one of the first American blackbelts under the legendary Royler Gracie, son of the creator of BJJ, Grandmaster Helio Gracie. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the most efficient martial art style proven to date. In Japanese, Jiu-Jitsu’s translation means the “gentle art.” The principle is to use leverage and proper technique so that even the smallest, weakest person can defend themself against a larger and stronger attacker. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has rapidly become the most in-demand martial art style in the United States. At Savarese Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, you will learn the same effective techniques the Gracie family and their students have used to successfully dominate Mixed Martial Arts and grappling competitions for years. Our classes are designed to help you to accomplish whatever goal you set forth for yourself. From weight loss, to self defense, to being a competitor, we will help you achieve your goal. Our academy welcomes all walks of life, paying special attention to those who have no previous experience. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes are taught with and without the jiu-jitsu kimono (uniform). In Jiu-Jitsu classes without the kimono, a rashguard or t-shirt and shorts are worn.Those classes are simply called No-Gi classes. Our classes are taught multiple times during the day. A typical class begins with a light warm up and stretch and as soon as everyone is loose, we teach students practical techniques and deliver personal instruction while students are drilling to ensure the class is learning and applying the techniques correctly. When joining our program, everyone is put through a 16 week course where they are taught all the basics techniques so you are ready to enter the main classes. Once the technique has been covered and you are in our intermediate and advanced classes, live sparring for students who wish to participate is permitted. In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, live sparring is an integral part of the art and what separates Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from most other martial arts. BJJ is the only Martial art that trains live during classes and that is why it is so effective. Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes near North Arlington will quickly whip you into best shape of your life. Savarese Jiu-Jitsu has flexible class times. There’s a class that can fit even the busiest of schedules with classes to train weekday nights, weekday early mornings, lunchtime, and weekends!
Gracie Self Defense
We also offer Our Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Self Defense, Women’s Only and Kids classes. Our Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Self-Defense program is one of the only programs that offers Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Bergen County NJ. We offer the original curriculum that was taught by Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s Grandmaster, Helio Gracie. This curriculum was taught at the original Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Rio De Janiero, Brazil. The course includes over 100 techniques that could literally save your life during a real street confrontation. These classes were originally only taught by Grandmaster Helio through private lessons. Professor Savarese is one of the first US born blackbelts under Grandmaster Helio’s son Royler Gracie and he teaches these classes that involve every aspect of self-defense including gun, knife and bat/club attacks. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a great combat sport, but self defense is a very overlooked aspect of BJJ. Far too many BJJ schools focus only on sport competition and point tournaments. While we teach those lessons as well at Savarese BJJ, we have several dedicated times each week where our students can learn real world techniques in our self defense class.
Women Only Self-Defense and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
The Savarese BJJ Academy also offers Self Defense for Women only. Our Women’s program was specifically designed to prepare women for real life threatening situations. Our Self Defense techniques provide the knowledge and skills for any woman to escape from her attacker, whether she is on her feet or on the ground. BJJ differs from many other martial arts because it does not rely exclusively on punching and kicking. Punching and kicking do not represent an effective strategy against an assailant who is bigger, stronger and capable of hitting back. In addition, punching and kicking are useless on the ground, which is where a rapist/attacker is most likely to assault a woman. You become a “fish out of water” on the ground. The classes are structured to achieve maximum comfort for females interested in pursuing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Men are not allowed in the room where the classes will be taking place unless they are an instructor. Students quickly notice an increase in flexibility, muscle strength, endurance and general well being. The idea is that the weaker and smaller can fight the bigger and stronger. Simply put, you cannot find a better self-defense martial art for women…We believe most attacks end up on the ground and we teach you how to defend yourself from there.
