GracieMag photographer John Lamonica was on hand in June as Rickson passed his academy over to son, Kron. The younger Gracie was one of the standouts at the last Worlds, with a win over then two-time lightweight champion Michael Langhi.

Lamonica captured Rickson’s outpouring of emotion, weeping during the ceremony, causing his brother Royler to shed some tears as well.

With friend Xande Ribeiro and brother Royler Gracie present, a new crop of black belts was promoted.

The next generation was present too...

For the most part Rickson was happy, but he would have been happier still, were it not for the two bitter, back to back losses to his son that he suffered, in Table Tennis.

I was there...kron's new place is da bomb...saweet judo style raised mats...lotz of space...ideal location near lax and freeway...if my back and hips were not jacked i'd be training there for sure

both rickson and kron represent what bjj is all about...rickson kept talking about having balance in your life...and how bjj is more than just what you do on the mat but transcends to the other aspects of your life
