From the Gracie Botany website:
Professor Craig Roberts is the owner and head coach of Gracie Botany — but you can call him Sav.

Sav has an extensive resume of excellence in Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu. He’s been training for 18 years, has been teaching for 10 years, and has been a black belt for 3 years. During that time, Sav has won numerous competitions and taught innumerable students.

Sav began training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Bruno Panno in 2003 at the Maroubra Surf Club. What began as an interest turned into an obsession. Within a year Sav won a nationwide tournament to become Australian Champion.

Since retiring from competition, Sav has dedicated his BJJ efforts into imparting his wisdom onto the next generation. After co-owning his own academy in the city, Sav became a full-time teacher at Gracie Humaita Sydney Headquarters.

He’s spent the past few years leading Gracie Sydney’s fundamentals program, and introduced Parent-Children classes to the school. With a widely recognized skillset, Sav has been teaching at academies across Sydney too. That includes Gracie Parramatta and Gracie Artamon.

As a seasoned competitor and coach, there’s no one better to start your BJJ journey with.
