Biography Of Pedro Sauer 

Pedro Sauer, a native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, began his journey in combat sports with boxing at the tender age of 5. He later expanded his skill set to include judo and taekwondo. When he was fifteen, his friend Rickson Gracie introduced him to Jiu Jitsu by inviting him to train with his younger brother, Royler Gracie.

Royler Gracie was just nine years old at the time. This experience led Pedro to believe that jiu jitsu was the most potent martial art, prompting him to train at the Gracie Academy the following day.

Pedro Sauer Education And BJJ Training

Pedro Sauer completed his college education in Economics and Business Administration and pursued postgraduate studies. He was employed as a stockbroker in Brazil while simultaneously training and earning his black belt in 1985. Pedro Sauer earned the BJJ black belt from friends of the Late Great master Helio Gracie and Rickson Gracie. He joined Academia Corpo Quatro on Francisco Sá Street, Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, as a BJJ coach. It is a renowned academy where notable figures like Sergio Bolao and Alvaro Barreto have taught.

In 1990, Sauer decided to abandon his profession as a stockbroker and moved to California. Once there, he became part of the pioneering team of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu trainers who relocated to the United States to instruct BJJ. He resided in California in close proximity to Rickson Gracie and participated in daily training sessions with the Gracie brothers (Rickson, Rorion, and Royce).

In December 1990, he went to Utah. Sauer stayed there for a long time, leading the way in jiu jitsu in the American Southwest. He is among the most in-demand instructors in the U.S. (across all martial arts) and has conducted hundreds of public seminars across the country. In 2005, Pedro Sauer was voted the “Best of the Best Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Instructor” by the Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) website’s survey.
