Worm Guard Attacks
Setting Up The Worm Guard
The Worm Guard is the position that made lapel guards famous. Way back in 2013/14, Keenan Cornelius showed how effective the position could be by successfully using it at the highest level of competition.
The power of the Worm Guard comes from the fact it simultaneously limits your opponent's mobility and breaks their posture while allowing you a degree of freedom to move.
