The World’s #1 Lapel Guard Player Finally Reveals His Complete System in…

The Lapel Encyclopedia by Keenan Cornelius

Now you can learn how to dominate your opponents from the lapel guard in this revolutionary new video training series from the world’s leading expert – Keenan Cornelius. In The Lapel Encyclopedia, Keenan shares his A-Game secrets on playing the lapel guards like a world champion – even if you’re inflexible, inexperienced, or struggle to use conventional guards.

At First, They Banned the Lapel Guard System… Now They Teach It

In 2015, Keenan “wrote the book” on the most offensive style of the lapel guards – the worm guard. And his 2 hour instructional DVD went on to become legendary.

After that, he spent 5 years developing a complete lapel guard system… and while he perfected it at the highest level of competition, his techniques changed the face of competitive jiu-jitsu. At first, traditional schools banned his system because it was too strong… and now most of them teach it.

Now, Keenan is doing something crazy… he’s releasing his entire system to the public – while he’s still using it in top-level competitions!

Q: Is Keenan’s Lapel Encyclopedia (KLE) available as part of Keenan Online?

Q: The Encyclopedia is expensive. Why?

A: For what you get – It’s not. Here are 4 reasons it’s actually an incredible deal:

  • We spared no expense in producing over 9 hours of video content (and it shows).
  • The system was developed over nearly a decade and perfected at the highest level of jiu-jitsu competition in the world.
  • Keenan is the only person alive that knows this system – and this is the only place you can learn it.
  • Keenan charges $500 per hour for private training sessions… and if he had time to train you personally it’d cost you $4500 to get a similar education.

A: When you buy The Lapel Encyclopedia you’ll only pay once – it’s not a subscription.

Q: Will the content be updated?

A: Keenan has been developing this system since 2011 – so it contains pretty much everything you’ll ever need to learn to play lapel guards at the highest level. If he finds improvements, Keenan may update the Encyclopedia, but it’s not currently planned.
