Chris Savarese, The Best Matchmaker in Grappling History - Proud Sponsor, Supporter and Friend
Chris Savarese was The Best Matchmaker in Grappling History. Period.
Between 2001 and 2007, Chris Savarese helped Grapplers Quest assemble some of the best talent in the grappling world to compete through guidance, sponsorship and friendship. His knowledge of grappling competition and scouting talent could be compared to to Oakland A's GM Billy Beane, he's THAT good and always has been.
Being a well-respected Black Belt Instructor in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and active Grapplers Quest competitor since the early days was a great part of Savarese's success. He always received an incredible amount of respect from all of the top level world champions, most of which would ask Chris Savarese to coach them when on the East Coast. His knowledge of Jiu Jitsu has elevated the games of many of the world's best since they were very young in the game, just ask anyone in the community and they will agree.
I would like the world to know that Chris Savarese sponsored countless events and athletes for 5+ years allowing for many of the cash prizes to be funded. Sav volunteered his time and efforts to make the events possible, even refereed at events, just to help "save the show" in the early days. His academy is out of Lyndhurst, New Jersey and information can be found at: http://NJBJJ.com
Thank you Sav, I will always appreciate how much you did for the sport of grappling, my family and Grapplers Quest. I'm proud to call you my friend.
See you soon!
