“Jake Johnston is the only certified Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt in the Southern Utah area. He started his training in Provo, Utah in the summer of 1993 under world-renowned Gracie Jiu-Jitsu instructor Pedro Sauer. He was promoted to blue belt in 8 months, and began helping teach Pedro’s kids and adult classes.
His dedication to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu continued as his desire to learn turned into a deep passion. In 1996 Jake began commuting to Southern Utah and started teaching private lessons and group classes, becoming the first person to teach Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in St. George. He received his purple belt in 1999, his brown belt in 2004, and was awarded the prestigious black belt in August of 2006. Jake has been learning and teaching Gracie Jiu-Jitsu for 18 years. He is one of the few people to be a direct student of Professor Sauer, earning all of the belts beginning with white all the way to black under his instruction. This makes Jake officially certified in the exclusive teachings of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Jake has dedicated the majority of his life to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.” – Seminar Promotion e-mail.
