History of BJJ Promotions

 History of Oregon Pound Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Promotions

Oregon Pound was initially affiliated with the Gracie Academy in Torrance, CA.  We became a Pedro Sauer Affiliate in 2001.  Since that time all promotions were done by Professor Sauer until 2008 when Rylan Lizares earned his Black Belt.  Promotions after 2008 were done by either Pedro Sauer or Rylan Lizares.   Mike Downing was promoted to Black Belt in 2014 so promotions after that date may have been done by him as well.
