Remember how Keenan Cornelius was supposed to have a show called “Back to Basics”? I was just wondering whatever happened to it: if it happened to take off or not. I just checked Youtube, and it looks like only one episode was aired.
Well, so much for that, I suppose.
Anyone have the scoop on what happened? Let me know- otherwise, have a great day everyone!
Ok, as much as I say that Keenan Cornelius looks like a serial killer, this is actually pretty funny.
Personally, I’m hoping it’s an homage to “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” (Language in the clip is NSFW, btw)
Take a look at the clips, and have a great day everyone!
Good morning everyone!
Here’s a video of Rodolfo Vieira’s answer to the worm guard. Let me know what you think.
Thanks and have a great day everyone!
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!
Well, I figured something like this would happen someday, I just didn’t think it was so soon or that it would be Abu Dhabi Pro Jiu Jitsu championships that would bring down the hammer. I watched the video and I have to admit there was some action going on: definitely more then what was happening in their Pans fight just a few weeks earlier, so I’m not entirely sure it was fair to penalize them, but I think for the health of the sport someone needed to put their foot down.
Watch the video and judge for yourself: if you’re wondering why it’s a link and not the video itself, this is still apparently week where every small, stupid thing goes wrong: my wifi doesn’t work, and Comcast isn’t showing up until tomorrow, so this is all being done from my phone. I’m not even surprised at this point: fortunately I subscribe to the philosophy of “this too shall pass”. But anyway, for now here’s the link.
