Pedro Sauer – BJJ Seminar – Baltimore Martial Arts

Professor Pedro Sauer will be conducting a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu seminar at Baltimore Martial Arts Academy on Thursday November 29th 7-9PM. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu belt promotions will be conducted afterwards by professor Sauer himself. The cost of the BJJ seminar is $50 if you register online or $60 at the door. Space is limited so please register early.


Pedro Sauer Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Professor Pedro Sauer

Master Pedro Sauer

Certified 8th Degree Red/Black Belt Instructor under Rickson Gracie.

Personal History

Professor Pedro Sauer was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where from an early age, he began training in the martial arts. At age five, he began boxing and later took up judo and taekwondo. At age fifteen, however, his friend, Rickson Gracie, invited him to train jiu-jitsu with his younger brother, Royler, who at the time was only nine years old. The outcome of this experience convinced him that jiu-jitsu was the most effective of all the martial arts, and he began training the very next day.

Pedro worked towards a double major (Economics and Business Administration) in college, and took post graduation course at Fundacao Getulio Vargas. He worked in Brazil as a stockbroker for eleven years before deciding to move to the United States and pursue a career teaching jiu-jitsu. In 1990, he moved to California with the original wave of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructors. He lived in California with Rickson Gracie and trained daily with the Gracie brothers (Rickson, Rorion, and Royce), their father, Helio Gracie, their cousin, Renzo Gracie, and the Machado Brothers, as well as many others. In December of that same year, he moved to Utah where he has lived for the past eight years, pioneering brazilian jiu-jitsu in the American southwest.

Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Promotion at Baltimore Martial Arts

Several junior students from the Baltimore Martial Arts Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program recently tested for their next belt. Four students in particular tested and passed their junior BJJ black belt.

The junior black belt candidates had to pass a grueling one hour test of physical strength, endurance and mental challenges before they were tested for technique proficiency. Their entire test took about 2 1/2 hours and was a testament to what students can achieve through hard work and dedication.

Ben's Classmates and Testing Partners

Conclusion:

Coincidently the day of Ben’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu test was his 15th birthday. Ben did an outstanding job. His father’s physical ability to hang and wrestle with his son was also very impressive. Ben and his father are both regular attendees of Baltimore Martial Arts. They have been taking BJJ, kettlebell and other classes with us for about three plus years. We will be sorry to see them leave this Summer as they are both going to India for a 2-3 year stay. They both plan to continue practicing Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and hopefully return one day soon.
