Jiu-jitsu master Pedro Sauer, a native of Rio de Janiero, has spent nearly his entire life honing his craft. He began training at age 5, learning boxing, judo, and taekwondo. At 15, his friend Rickson Gracie approached him with the suggestion that he train in the art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu—and Pedro's bond with the Gracie family was formed. In the early 1990s, he moved to live and train with Rickson and the Gracie brothers under grand master Helio Gracie. Through diligence, discipline, and skill, he worked his way up to become an eighth-degree black belt in jiu-jitsu—a title held by only a few in the country.
Today, Pedro passes on his knowledge as the founder and head instructor at Pedro Sauer Total Self-Defense Academy. Inside this 4,000-square-foot training facility, he and his team of certified trainers helm a range of martial-arts programs for youth and adults. Master Pedro personally coaches others in the skills of Brazilian and Gracie jiu-jitsu, techniques that blend standing and ground-based grappling moves with a focus on leverage and teaching one's opponent to sympathize with pretzels. Black belt Krav Maga instructor Brad Burnette trains students in a style of striking and grappling techniques devised by the Israeli Armed Forces. Additionally, khru Bryan Mossey helps students hone body control and striking prowess in Muay Thai boxing and the Filipino martial-arts styles of Kali and Silat.
Maid to Please’s staff of experienced cleaners undergo extensive training before tackling domestic grime, working from cleaning checklists informed by patron preferences outlined via an online appointment scheduler. Wielding eco-friendly supplies upon request, cleaners infiltrate abodes to de-filth furniture and decorative trinkets, vacuum and mop grunge clinging to carpets and floors, and snag cobwebs from corners. Staffers lavish extra attention on bathrooms, bombarding tubs and toilets with purifying products before buffing sinks and mirrors so they gleam brighter than a freshly waxed diamond ring. Dust scuttles from kitchen counters while dirt destroyers haul cloths across stoves, sinks, appliance exteriors, and microwave interiors.
Just one mile from the airport, The Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Dulles Airport provides travelers with a sound night's sleep and easy access to and from the airport. Sixty regular rooms and 22 suites fill the three-story structure, each with a slew of amenities, including coffee makers, morning newspaper delivery, and flat-screen televisions, which long ago replaced in-room marionette performances. A free continental breakfast greets guests each morning, and the complimentary shuttle runs laps between the parking lot and the airport from 4:30 a.m. to midnight every day.
Golden Boot Soccer helms its training camps with astute, talented coaches pulled from the ranks of ex-DC United players and other teams around the world. Kids can acquire the fine art of foot-fueled accuracy with the Art of Scoring camp's techniques and drills. During Goalkeeper camp, active coaches run drills that teach young defenders how to clutch and throw the ball out of the box, always placing an emphasis on protecting the goal and maintaining the ultimate goal—protecting the president. The Mini Kickers camp takes a stride towards toddler stardom by presenting fundamental and sporty concepts such as soccer rules, good sportsmanship, and teamwork in a noncompetitive, exploratory environment.
