Hawaii’s Keenan Cornelius started turning heads by accomplishing one of the rarest of feats: shutting down the berimbolo of the skillful Miyao brothers in the purple belt division. From there, Keenan went on and never looked back; winning weight divisional and absolute titles in the four biggest IBJJF tournaments there are: the Europeans, Brazilian Nationals, Pan and Worlds.
A complete and relentless fighter who’s just at good at playing guard as he is at passing, the brown belt is also big on razzle-dazzle moves, like the ones in the following video of his highlights.
For example: checkout minute 1 of the video, where Keenan spins and lands on his opponent’s back.
