PJ Jits at the Keenan Cornelius Seminar in Kuala Lumpur


American BJJ superstar Keenan Cornelius was in Kuala Lumpur recently (21/6/2017) for a massive seminar. Organized by Monarchy MMA/Hyperfly Asia, the event drew BJJ fanatics from all over Malaysia and also outside of Malaysia. Ive not seen a gathering of so many BJJ players (around 60 people) from various clubs/academies under one roof before! It was quite a sight.

A few of us from PJ Jiujitsu Club were on hand to experience the event. It was a good opportunity to pick up some tips and tricks from one of the world's best BJJ player. Although I was a bit disappointed that Keenan opted not to teach his famous worm guard, but what he chose to teach on that night itself, what is known as "Layers of Guard Retention" series, was useful and maybe more applicable in a day to day normal BJJ game.

So we had good training, and had great fun throughout the seminar. We also got to witness Keenan roll with almost everyone at the seminar, which was pretty cool! Also ...  got to meet new friends and caught up with some old friends as well.

Hopefully the organizers bring Keenan Cornelius back again next year so he can teach us his worm guard system!
