Just read this article over on about the relationship between Matt Serra and Ray Longo entitled "Serra-Longo an Exception to the Rule" and the loyalty that they have that has made for great success over the years. This special relationship and loyalty is extended to both Serra BJJ academies and something we hold in the highest regard.

Big congrats to our very own Matt "The Terror" Serra on his win over Frank Trigg!  Matt won via KO in the first round after throwing a heavy-handed overhand right that landed flush on Trigg's jaw, sending him down to the mat. Matt looked very sharp and aggressive, throwing several body shots and leg kicks in combination. After knocking Trigg to the ground, Matt landed at least three more devastating blows that forced the ref to intervene and end the match.

Congrats on a well deserved victory, can't wait to see Matt in his next fight, hopefully here in New York!

Just wanted to congratulate and thank all those who donated food items for our very first holiday food drive to the Long Island Cares Inc. The total weight of food donated by both schools was over 400 pounds, and we had 150 dollars worth of donations that went towards buying turkeys.

Our raffle winners are Michelle Maldanado from our East Meadow academy, and John Schettini from our Huntington academy.  Also, our winner for the most donated items was Nick Scumaci.

Thank you all again for all the generous donations and making our first food drive a success!
