    Kinda ironic. Today we found out that one of our instructor's buddies (a John Will brown belt out of Oz) is coming to teach at our school next week. He turned down his black belt in order to compete against Kron at Mundials. Looks like he is going to be a bit disappointed.

    That's awesome. I know it's got to be a great feeling to get a bjj black considering he's been working at it for years.

    Kron is considered to be the biggest douche of the Gracie clan today

    good for him, but he's gonna either be that much douchier, or is gonna get humbled by better black belts

    It was. He did Pan Ams then a Japanese comp, now he's a black. So, correct word usage, me thinks.

    well congrats to him. It'll be interesting to see how he fares against the black belts in comps now.

    Kron is about to get sponsored by TRIUMPH UNITED or possibly have girlfriend issues, so yes it is relevant to the forum
