GRAPPLING IS GREAT AND MARCELO GARCIA IS THE PROOF.

Grappler, you might think from reading DSTRYR/SG that we take pleasure in mocking your inferior Jiu Jitsu game.  Not the case.  We care about you.  We're here to lift your spirits, to nurture you and make you feel good about yourself ... on occasion.

Take, for example, the amazing video below from the Marecelo Garcia Academy YouTube channel.  To me, it's patent evidence of the greatness of BJJ/submission grappling and it's inspiring.

Marcelo may well be the greatest of our generation.  And, at the same time, he's accessible in a way that many professional athletes are not.  I say that's the BJJ way.  Our greatest athletes are achieving new heights and at the same time our sport remains very close knit.  Marcelo is the perfect embodiment of all of that and everything we want to be as grapplers - capable, adaptive and humble with a game as deep as it is effective.

Go jits.
