Check out Cung rocking a sweet Lucky Gi and his brand new blue belt!Not long after winning the middleweight Strikeforce belt by soundly defeating Frank Shamrock, Cung Le gained another belt to add to his collection – a Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Cung’s jiu jitsu instructors Paul Schreiner and Garth Taylor felt Cung’s technique merited a promotion. For those that don’t know, Cung has been training BJJ regularly for the last couple years and although not many of his fights have gone to the ground, he is becoming very dangerous on the mat.
As Garth said, “Cung is a very special athlete, we waited so long to promote him because we wanted to make sure that he was developing slick technique, not just relying on his athleticism”
Not showing any signs of slowing down, Cung remains dedicated to honing his skills in his quest to become a complete mixed martial artist. According to Paul “The guy’s a true martial artist and most importantly is a very humble person who really respects the technical and strategic depth of jiu jitsu. On top of that he is a remarkable athlete and we’ve only seen a glimpse of what he’s capable of – watch out for his omoplata.”
