Pedro Sauer is a well-known name in the world of Brazilian jiu-jitsu. His BJJ techniques are noted for their technical accuracy and elegance, and he is a well-respected seminar presenter. Pedro Sauer earned his black belt from Helio Gracie and Rickson Gracie in 1985. In 1986, Pedro Sauer began his career as an instructor of BJJ techniques when he was asked to teach with an organization known in Brazil as Corpo/Quatro ("body of four"), where he continued training under ninth-degree red belt Alvaro Barreto. Alvaro Barreto is one of three brothers — Alvaro, Sergio and João Alberto. Upon being introduced to Brazilian jiu-jitsu, each of these brothers became proficient in BJJ techniques in their own way. The Barreto brothers were originally associated with the Gracie family during the setup of a challenge match. Alvaro's brother, João Alberto, was singled out as a competitor by Helio Gracie and appeared in many televised challenge matches.
