In doing so he was able to train a more well-rounded martial artist that not only has multiple tools for defense but also multiple applications for what they have learned. Mr. Saper has over 20 years of Martial Arts training, and holds multiple rankings in different disiplines, as he grew Black Belt Academy he began offering other programs and eventaully it became what is now know as Choice Martial Arts.

TEAM CHOICEIt has been said that competion brings out the best of us. Team Choice was formed as a small group of individuals training at Choice Martial Arts who looked to do just that. These individuals not only brought out the best in each other, but were able to grow as strong competitors in there disipline(s). We have helped develop both amatuer and professional fighters and athletes into stronger competitors than when they began their training. Our fighters/competitors have competed in just about all facits of competition; mma, karate, boxing, kickboxing, muay thai, submission grappling, brazilian jiu jitsu, judo, san da or san shou, tae kwon do, and more. We have also helped professional atheletes cross train for their sports thru our training regiments. As our team grows we look to build future champions in their disciplines. As sport or competitive martial arts grows, from the populartiy of MMA and the UFC, we will continue to provide exceptional training for those looking to compete or just push themselves to a competitive level.
TEAM CHOICE BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
Is a direct affiliate of Maxercise Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a Saulo Riberio Academy. Alone in the Philadelphia area, Maxercise has the honored distinction of building world champions from the ground up. We have many students that joined us with no prior experience with any other Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school who now own regional, national, and international titles. Those who choose not to compete can take pride in having helped build such a team, as it is the efforts and training of everyone that push us forward. The very first Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school, Gracie Humaita, was started by Helio Gracie, in 1968 in Rio de Janeiro, and is still in practice today under the watchful eye of Helio's son, Royler. Maxercise is closely descended from Humaita through the great Saulo Ribeiro and Royler Gracie himself.
