This Is How Marcelo Garcia Became The Greatest Of All Time

 

After falling short at the Brazilian ADCC 2003 trials, Marcelo did not qualify for the ADCC. However, he was called in as a last minute replacement as a result of Denis Hallman pulling out.

Despite being an underdog, he was willing to compete in the stacked division which included Renzo Gracie and Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro. No one knew who Marcelo was, but he was ready to shock the world. He ends up finishing Kunioku, Shaolin, Olson by RNC and Renzo by points.

After placing gold in his 77KG division, Marcelo enters the Absolutes and submits Mike Van Arsdale in the first round. He then faces Marcio Cruz and loses via point in the quarterfinals.

Marcelo continues to compete and tears up the scene by winning 5 World titles, 4 ADCC titles, 3 Brazilian National titles and a Pan Ams tittle.

Marcelo is arguably the greatest submission grappler of all time and pound for pound the best in the world.

How To Prevent And Escape Leg Locks | Marcelo Garcia

 

With no grips or controls holding your opponent and your guard in open empty space, you’ve recognized his intentions of attacking your vulnerable foot. Open your hip and point your knee down to reveal the heal of your foot as you kick against the opponent’s center with your non-captured leg to free your ankle. If the opponent has crossed your leg and fell back, remove his legs from your path and latch onto his hands and upper body until you can safely scoot around out of his submission attempt.
