Seminar 2: Guard Pass Mastery   
Having experienced many injuries in over forty years on the mat, Master Sauer has adjusted his grappling style to optimize self-preservation. Today, he has a finely tuned guard passing system that he routinely uses against younger, stronger opponents. He simply uses distance management and hip control to untangle the flashiest sport guards. First, Master Sauer teaches the key principles of posture and his favorite ways to break the guard, and then he addresses options based on your opponent’s behavior.

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.
