2009 Pan Ams – Braga Neto takes two titles

Kron Gracie ready to make a run at the Pan American as Black Belt

Kron Gracie was spectacular at the Pan Ams in 2008 winning 3 matches at weight and 5 in the absolute division, all by submission as a brown belt.

The young Gracie rebounded quickly, winning his first major competition as a black belt at the European Jiu Jitsu Championship in Portugal. GracieMag recently reported that Kron will be stepping back onto the mat on March 27th through the 29th for the Jiu Jitsu Pan American as a black belt for the first time.
