Keenan’s success with using the Lapel Guard Series:
Keenan began using the lapel guard in competition in the 2014 Pan American Champions. One of the most notable demonstrations of his new system was with his make with Murilo Santana.
Since 2014 Keenan Cornelius has had an impressive winning record in the main international competitions. His primary Gi style game is the worm guard. A lapel guard series style game he uses from the bottom to entangle his opponents and execute sweeps and submissions.
