Julio Cesar Pereira is a 6th degree Black Belt and a founding member of Grappling Fight Team (better known as GF Team) in Rio de Janeiro.

Unlike many of Jiu Jitsu players, his lineage does not come from the Gracies. Instead, Pereira’s routes come directly from Oswaldo Fadda.

He is an accomplished competitor in his own right and is responsible for developing some of the top Jiu Jitsu competitors in the world today, such as Rodolfo Vieira, Denilson Pimenta, and Vitor Oliveira.

There is one incredibly unique thing about Kron Gracies Jiu Jitsu.

It is completely different from other high-level Jiu Jitsu competitors. Yet it no one has more subs while losing on points than Kron Gracie, not to mention he doesn’t play any definable guard.

His guard is incredibly basic. He actually refuses to play 50/50 De La Riva, etc. even when competitors put him in these positions.

Unfortunately, for his opposition, his guard is incredibly unhealthy for limbs and necks. Watch this video from Bishop BJJ to see what I mean.
