Last week, news came out that Aaron “Tex” Johnson’s days at Unity have come to an end after startling accusations against him surfaced from fellow Unity bjj student.
In the meantime, Tex Johnson took his instagram page offline for a few weeks only to publish an interesting new video: Him breaking a baseball bat with a straight footlock:

I tried it on the other side and didn’t like the breaking mechanics. This side was really easy. Hope everyone enjoyed the content. Thank you @eddie_wolverine For helping me pick that bat. @holdfastfightgear @cavemancoffeeco @noble_timepieces @kasaigrappling @adccsubmission @flograppling @f2wbjj @sluggernation send bats please #breakshit #dontletmebreakyourshit #physics
The incident in question took place around the same time as Kasai 5 where Felipe Pena got subbed by the alleged assaulter.
NY based artist Jennifer Strings wrote a graphic post about Tex’s alleged misdeeds – which actually line up with his weird entry to rehab.
In addition to this Unity BJJ has kicked him out after the victim went to gym staff:
Strings has since taken her accusation offline due to a pending criminal case against Tex – one she is quite determined to see through.
As of right now Johnson is invited to ADCC being one of the American trials winners but should he be prevented from making travel arrangements ADCC will likely issue one more invite for his division.
Among the particularly worrisome is that the victim believes this is not the first time Johnson had sexually assaulted somebody and is urging all people with any information to come forward and contact the NY Special Victims Unit.
Learning the leg attack game is a smart thing to do if you want to pursue the no gi, sub only game. Learning this game will give you an advantage of the standard points seeking fighter. So don’t be a fool, and start picking up leg entanglements and attacks. If you really want to improve this part of your game, then you need to check out Craig Jones new DVD Set “Down Under Leg Attacks.” Craig Jones is quickly becoming one of the biggest superstars in bjj due to his outstanding performance at ADCC 2017 in Finland where he was able to submit Leandro Lo. He recently competed at an EBI and submitted everyone on his way to the finals via inside sankaku heel hook. He almost got the king, Gordon Ryan in an arm lock in the finals but fell short!
