On Sunday April 28, well known Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star Keenan Cornelius was hosted by Hamptons Jiu-Jitsu in South Hampton, NY, as he provided a top notch Gi seminar to the packed crowd in attendance. Keenan has become known for his innovations utilizing the Gi, specifically the lapel, and Bjj practitioners from all over Long Island showed up to learn his system.
An introduction to Keenan’s “Lapel Guard” was the focus of the day, with multiple variations and submissions within the technique. Keenan even treated the crowd to a brand new Lapel submission that he is still formulating in the lab. After 2 solid hours of technique, Keenan did an hour long King of the Hill, making sure to roll with everyone in attendance. All who attended left with a better understanding of how to utilize the lapel to their advantage, and a first hand experience rolling with an Elite level Black belt competitor.
