Do You Feel Vulnerable When Trying To Set Up Your Lapel Entanglements?

Here’s the thing, at this stage, you’ve probably played around with lapel guards or at the very least got a taste of what it feels like to be on the receiving end of worm guard, reverse de la worm, and so on. You’re smart and know that lapel guards are evolving and you want to evolve with them because who wants to get left behind right?

The Setup Is Everything.

Just because you have a lapel end in your hand doesn’t mean you’ll stop your opponent from destroying your guard and brutally cross choking you from mount. The lapel is only as sharp as your mind allows it to be. With that being said… we present to you Andris’ take on his favorite lapel guards and submissions.

Meet Your Instructor, Andris Brunovskis.

Through this course, you will learn from someone who’s been closely watching Keenan’s lapel guard evolution from the very beginning. Andris (born in Latvia and forged on American mats) has been exposed to the worm light from the early days of its existence by training with worm lord Mr. Cornelius, since then, Andris molded it to his own unique game and he’s here to show all of his favorite techniques including two other lapel works of art you might not be familiar with…

Canero Guard & The Latvian Handcuff.

Canero guard is pretty much your lapel shark biting around your opponent’s ankle. Andris will show you how to incorporate the canero guard with other more common guards and how to do damage from there.

The Latvian handcuff, in short, is Andris’ way of forcing his opponents to fight him with only one hand while the trapped hand is at risk of getting wrist locked. Triangle and omoplata submissions included.

Lapelapalooza Breakdown.

Once you’re in these lapel systems, you can take your time. It’s all about establishing the position and Andris explains this concept very well throughout this experience. Lapelapalooza contains 8 chapters. As you work your way through, the Latvian sniper will take you on a journey starting from the very white belt mode to pro-level lapel player.

Andris has a smooth teaching style and is thorough and easy to follow in his instruction. His 'thumbs up' game is at another level.

I`ve barely scratched the surface of the Lapel Encyclopedia and bought this mostly because of Andris.
With this course Andris proves again he`s a great instructor. Some great techniques to be found here and even as a beginner it`s easy to follow along and learn.

Like many of us on JJX, I`m a big fan of everything Keenan, especially the Lapel Encyclopedia. I`ve seen a few of Andris`s videos on Keenan Online, and have heard Keenan expressed great things about Andris during interviews on Andris`s teaching style. Lapelapalooza was my first insight into Andris. And dare I say it - I would put Andris on the Mount Rushmore of Modern BJJ Instructions alongside with Danaher, Keenan, and Ryan Hall. Andris is great in communicating details, and he is really creative on his take on the Lapel Guard. For example, in RDLW, I`ve had the hardest time figuring out how to elevating my knee above the opponent`s knee. After watching Andris`s segments on these topics, I can more easily accomplish this. Lapelapalooza is a great complimentary to Lapel Encyclopedia. Even if you haven`t seen Lapel Encyclopedia, Lapelapalooza is also a great concise standalone intro to the Lapel Guard. Andris is el hombre!
