Savarese Jiu-Jitsu team kills it at NJBJJF

The Savarese Jiu-Jitsu team kills it at NJBJJF! Our competition team had a very good day at the prestigious NJBJJF tournament today w 7 of the 8 guys we had competing going home with hardware, many of them winning tournaments for the first time. I am so proud of you guys because for some of you, it’s been a tough road but you didn’t give up and reaped the rewards of hard work and perseverance. Like I always say, I am proud of all of you not because of your success, but because you aren’t afraid to fail. Winners have to fail first before they succeed and the fact that so many of you didn’t give up says a lot. It is the beginning steps of consistent winning.
