Seminar 1: Side Mount Escape Mastery   
Master Pedro Sauer has been training jiu-jitsu for over 40 years. At 155 lbs, he was almost always on the receiving end of the beatings from Rorion, Rickson, and Relson – with whom he trained regularly. Consequently, he developed an amazing ability to remain calm in uncomfortable positions and escape under the least likely circumstances. In this special mastery seminar, Pedro teaches seven of his favorite escapes from the most dreaded position in jiu-jitsu – bottom side mount. First, he will show you some details that will take your shrimp escape to the next level, and then he will share his most reliable north-south escapes and some bonus details!

Pedro Sauer
  8th Degree Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Coral Belt

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 15, 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.

His training under both Helio and Rickson took place during a time when jiu jitsu was making its crucial transition as an obscure Brazilian art to a worldwide martial arts phenomenon. Pedro worked towards a double major (Economics and Business Administration) in college, and took post graduation courses 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.
