Grandson to grandmaster Helio Gracie and son to Rickson, world runner-up Kron has pure Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu running through his veins. He’s today’s pick to demonstrate basic Jiu-Jitsu and self-defense concepts here on GRACIEMAG.com.
At a 2010 seminar in Los Angeles, the black belt went all the way through the spectrum, teaching positions from the very simplest to the most advanced.

In defending the standing guillotine choke, for example, Kron highlights the importance of not letting your opponent posture up, keeping your hand over his shoulder and pushing his hip to keep him off balance.
Now with the straight foot lock, Kron shows how to drop his standing opponent and then finish by applying pressure to the foot just right.
