So I ended up watching BJJ Scout’s breakdown of the worm guard. BTW I dislike the name, but whatever. I can see the benefits to the position and the method in the madness, if you will, however I don’t see myself practicing this anytime soon and I can definitely foresee a lot of stalling in this position mainly due to the fact that a lot of people don’t seem to have a solid defense against the guard. Which is obviously good for Cornelius, for now.
I think it will stump people for a while, but there will eventually come a good counter or defense for this move. The nice thing about jiu jitsu is that it is always evolving, because people eventually find an answer/counter/response to a position. That’s part of what makes the sport and martial art so interesting.
Anyway, that’s all I have for today: what are your thoughts on the worm guard. Let me know- otherwise, have a great day everyone!
