Kron Gracie Bozeman Announcement

Here at SBG Bozeman we are very sorry to hear that Kron Gracie is closing his academy here in our town. We are huge fans of Kron, his wins by submission at the ADCC 2013 in China in which he took gold displayed Jiu Jitsu at the very highest levels.

Whilst we celebrate the promotion of Jiu Jitsu through Joe Rogan, and countless celebrities such as Keanu Reeves, Jonah Hill, etc, or business people like Mark Zuckerberg, Jiu Jitsu has barely entered the mainstream conciousness, even though self defence of ourselves and our families is so important. When a Jiu Jitsu academy closes, our overall mission is slowed. We work better as a pack to spread the word of Jiu Jitsu. Sadly most people have never even stepped on a Jiu Jitsu mat. They have yet to experience the incredible health benefits, the sense of community and friendships, and the improvements to self confidence and strategic thinking that cannot be obtained in the typical commercial gym. We wish Kron Gracie every success in his future endeavours and he can always count on our supp
