The preceding describes the eclectic background of Peter Lawson with the common thread of duty, dedication and devotion to excellence – to the arts – the martial arts. The common thread that runs through 5 of the black belts he earned via his 30 years plus experience.

Next, Mr. Lawson intensely trained (6 days per week; up to 4 hours per day) with the late great Dr. Moses Powell in Sanucus Ryu Jiujitsu after a chance meeting in Brooklyn. First, he was invited to train at the good doctor’s residence before transferring to the infamous “When World Collide Dojo.” The rigorous training paid off when Mr. Lawson earned a 6th degree blackbelt in Sanucus Ryu Jiujitsu.
In February of 1997, Mr. Lawson began studying a new art – Brazilian Jiujitsu – which became popular with the advent of the Ultimate Fighting Championships and Mixed Martial Arts competitions. Mr. Lawson’s study took him all over the world: Japan; Brazil; U.A.E., and throughout the U.S.A. with his illustrious instructor – Master Renzo Gracie and his family. Within his years of studying said art, Mr. Lawson won 3 Gold medals, 1 Silver medal and 1 Bronze medal at the Pan American Jiujitsu Championships. He, also, won a Bronze medal at the International Masters & Seniors Championship in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
