Yesterday the snap above alarmed members of the bjj community across the globe. The gnarly angle of the leg in the kneebar seemed to elicit a lot of controversial responses. There are those who praised Lo for sticking through the pain and inevitable damage but there are also those who considered it a bad example for the younger generations.
Still one way or another everyone was curios: what’s the extent of damage done?
Here’s the video cued to the kneebar in case you’d like to see the move in action:
Still Lo was asked to comment by graciemag and here’s his response:
“The last fight was war,” he said. “I swept — it was okay until then. But then I attempted the foot lock, and he countered with the leg lock. He was going to come up and score two, which is why I yielded the leg lock again, and things got complicated.”
Of course the effect was apparent – even though Lo had tremendous amounts of adrenaline going through the match by observing the footage you can tell it was bothering him.
“It hurts, of course, but nothing too bad. I haven’t trained since — I’m resting, — but I think tomorrow I’ll be already back training with a focus on the Worlds.”
