Trio of Savarese BJJ students earn instructor certification

A trio of Savarese BJJ students earned instructor certification this month.

In front of a full class, Professor Chris Savarese acknowledged this accomplishment by calling the 3 brownbelts, Brian Procel, Dan Lleonart and Anthony DelGuercioe to the front and presenting him with his certificate of completion. The process to complete this course requires a student to teach many classes and know the curriculum. Futhermore, knowing and being able to teach the history of Jiu-Jitsu to the other students at the academy is also a requirement.

Certification comes a great amount of responsibility. Hence, instructors who complete the course are held to a higher standard than other students.

Lleonart and Procel have been training for 9 years under Professor Savarese, the academy owner and Royler Gracie black belt ( Del Guercio is training for 8. The three appear to be next line line at the Academy to become blackbelts. Professor Savarese has said that he is very proud of the teaching job they have thus far at the Academy.

About Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport and a self-defense system created by the legendary Gracie family.

Especially instrumental to the art’s development was Helio Gracie, the youngest of the five Gracie brothers. Because his physique was thin and frial, he was forced to adapt the techniques he learned. Many of those being that a smaller, weaker person could overcome an adversary of greater size and strength.

Helio Gracie would accept and defeat challenges of much larger, heavier, and stronger men in the prime of his career. Futhermore, Gracie fought many challenges in his quest to prove the superior effectiveness of Jiu- Jitsu. Finally, ground fighting emphasizes taking an opponent to the ground and utilizing ground fighting techniques and submission holds involving joint-locks and choke holds.
