Pedro Sauer is a real class act. He grew up with the Gracie family and truly understands Jiu-Jitsu the way Helio intended for it to be understood. His technique is absolutely beautiful and he's very passionate about being a good instructor.

Professor Sauer is hands down the best instructor I have ever had the honor to learn from. He is always willing to share everything he knows with anyone that wants to learn and he is still on the mat training and leading by example. He is a superb instructor and a fantasic person.

Professor Sauer, he is one of the most well liked instructors I have ever pleasure of working with. In my opinion he is the best at recognizing and developing some of the most talented BJJ instructors the world. That is what makes his affliate instructors some of the most talented humble,and down to earth BJJ experts you can work with. That is a quality that trickles down to all of Professor Pedro Sauers students.

Pedro Sauer is known as a technical genius, which he is. His greatest characteristic in my opinion, is that he is also one of the most genuine, humble people you will ever meet. He believes that jiu-jitsu is a tool to improve the lives of others, and he does it every day.

Easily one of the most technical instructors in the world, his understanding and ability to explain every detail is truly what separates him from the rest. He is also one of the most respectful people I have ever met and has no ego. There is no drama at his academy he welcomes all and encourages his students to train with everybody they can which is a true rarity in the Brazilian Jiu-Jits community. He spends everyday on the mat teaching all students from white belt to black belt. As Rorion Gracie says, he is "one of the pillars that holds together the jiu-jitsu community." Obrigado Professor

If it isn't enough that his technique is phenomenal and his teaching method time tested, Professor Sauer is a great mentor as well. He always has a positive attitude and despite a busy schedule always finds time to talk to everyone and mentor those that seeks his advise. He encourages a positive, cooperative learning environment where everyone can enjoy jiujitsu regardless of background and individual goals. Professor Sauer has been my teacher for about 6 years. During that time not only have I had awesome instruction and mentoring but have gained a great friend as well.

96. Submitted by Deborah on Saturday May 4, 2013 7:34 AM
Training with Pedro Sauer is an unbelievable experience. I would say (besides everybody else's positive comments that I agree with totally) that the word I think of in connection with Master Sauer is "respect." If he is universally respected, honored and even idolized in the BJJ world (and he is, regardless of affiliations and lineages), I think it is due to the respect that he has for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, for GM Helio and the Gracie family in general, for students and especially, for himself. One of my teachers defined respect as "giving 100% every time" and I think Master Sauer has gotten to the top of the BJJ tree by always giving 100% in any situation.

I started with Pedro Sauer in January 2006 and trained with him until he moved to Virginia later that year, he provided me the best introduction to the art I could have asked for and some of the best black belts I have ever worked with have come from his association.
