Professor Pedro Sauer
Pedro Sauer was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, having started his combat sports training through boxing at the age of 5. Sauer also added judo and taekwondo to his expertise at a later stage. At age fifteen, his friend Rickson Gracie, invited him to come and train Jiu-Jitsu with his younger brother (Royler Gracie), who was only nine years old. The outcome of this experience convinced Pedro that jiu-jitsu was the most effective of all the martial arts, and he began grappling at the Gracie academy the very next day. Master Pedro Sauer holds an eighth-degree red/black belt under Rickson Gracie.
