Happy Friday! Rainy Day Edition

Happy Friday everyone!

Today is just rainy, and wet, and pretty gross, to be honest. But, There’s training later today, so there’s a bit of silver lining to the hurricane that may or may not hit the East Coast this weekend.

And there will be class, and training! As the line in the poem goes, “We’ll weather the weather, whatever the weather,…”

Anyway, have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Friday! Keenan Cornelius Show… Edition

Happy Friday everyone!

So according to White Belt BJJ, Keenan Cornelius is supposed to get his own “show”. And surprisingly, it’s not “101 Ways to Look Like a James Bond Villain”.

Although you have to admit, he would do quite well at hosting that sort of show.

No dear friends, instead he’s hosting a show called “Back to Basics”, discussing jiu jitsu, and “life questions”.

Read all about it, and have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Friday! Name Game Edition

Happy Friday everyone!

I was just thinking about some of the names we have for guards and techniques- spider guard, butterfly guard, scissor sweep- for the most part they make sense: they remind the person of a particular object, insect, etc. or they are named after the person who most notably used it- for example the De la Riva Guard, or the Kimura.

There are some funky ones out there that just don’t make sense, personally. Like Worm guard, for example. Keenan, dude, why “worm guard”? I guess “Lapel Wrapping Clusterduck” was sort of a mouthful.

And yes, I intentionally used the word “clusterduck”- it’s one of the best autocorrect mistakes iPhone has ever given me.

And let’s not even get started on Eddie Bravo- Electric Chair? The Wizard? Banana Split? I may or may not be making up that last one- I’m not too sure, to be honest.

Who gets to name these things? I’m sure there are multiple names for the same positions- how does one name get to be more popular than the other?

Just some things to think about. Have a great weekend everyone!
