Holy crap! This Keenan Cornelius of Team Lloyd Irvin fame is, to put it lightly, the sh*t. It’s been a good long while since we’ve seen a brown belt dominate the ranks in competition the way he’s been doing it for the past couple years (as a purple transitioning to brown).
This kid (he’s like 20) is winning everything – literally. He’s won both his weight division and the absolute at 5 major tournaments times this year: at Pan, European, Brazilian Nationals, No-Gi World and, most impressively, Worlds. We’re predicting that, when he’s promoted to black belt, he’ll do the same or something close in that division as well (although the competition is steep). Even better – this guy get subs and he gets them a lot. That means he’s a pleasure to watch and he’s confident enough to take the chance one needs to finish guys off.
