Henry “The Messenger” Cejudo
Who exactly is Henry Cejudo? After all most people only know him from the UFC. I doubt many grapplers actually know Henry Cejudo’s grappling background and his accomplishments. Granted, we all know what he can do inside the octagon, but MMA is a very specific environment to grapple in. We all know how important wrestling is for MMA, as people like Henry, Khabib, and others continuously demonstrate inside the octagon. But what about BJJ? Is Cejudo’s brand of wrestling and his takedown philosophy going to apply to the gentle Art? Let’s look at his background before the Henry Cejudo DVD actually comes out.
Henry Cejudo was born on February 9th, 1987, in Phoneix, Arizona. He started wrestling while in high school and soon caught the eye with his enormous talent and incredible work rate. In 2006, Cejudo managed to win the American wrestling federation’s national freestyle tournament. This was a huge accomplishment for someone his age and opened the door to his Olympic career. He went on to claim various different titles in the US before stepping on the Olympic mats.
In Bejing in 2008, Cejudo went through the best of the best in the world like a freight train. The freestyle wrestler dominated each and every opponent, displaying an incredible takedown game. Not long after his amazing victory, Cejudo decided he is going to retire from wrestling. Normally, he focused on using his world-class skills in the quest for different titles.
Before he faced Demetrious Johnson, Cejudo was undefeated in MMA, with a record of 10-0. Even today, his record is that of an impressive 13 wins and only 2 defeats. If history is anything to go by, Cejud is here to stay at the very top of the UFC.
Henry Cejudo DVD
A Henry Cejudo DVD going over wrestling takedowns has the same value as a John Danaher leg locks DVD. If this comparison doesn’t bring things into perspective, you might not be in the right sport for you. That said, the one key characteristic of Cejudo that makes this upcoming DVD so special not an apparent one. It is not his Olympic and MMA experience, nor his technical ability that makes his DVD special. It’s actually his style of wrestling that excites everyone that knows something about grappling.
Being a freestyle wrestler, Cejudo brings to the table the factor of unpredictability. Freestyle wrestlers are extremely athletic and explosive by nature. Plus they have the mentality of adapting to any new situation that arises during a match. On top of everything, you could argue that their technical arsenal is much bigger than that of wrestlers from other styles. Freestyle wrestling is actually really close to BJJ from a conceptual standpoint. Freestyle wrestlers take only the best techniques and are not afraid to modify and adapt them as they go along.
What this means for a Henry Cejudo DVD is that it is going to bring to the table something completely new. So far, Cejudo went over all the Danaher DVD’s to figure out the best way to present his material. Expect a very well organized DVD, with incredible attention to detail. Furthermore, you can bet that Henry is going to talk a lot about concepts and strategies on top of deconstructing some of the most useful wrestling takedowns for Jiu-Jitsu. Seeing as his commitment and abilities are unquestionable, this upcoming DVD is going to be a real hit!
