ANOTHER MURKY MARCELO GARCIA ROLLIN' WITH A FAMOUS DUDE VIDEO REVEALS ITSELF.


The way I look at it, these grainy, screen-shot, pirated videos of Marcelo Garcia, perhaps the greatest of our day, rollin' with other legends and/or otherwise huge names in grappling ... well, they're like little gifts from the BJJ gods.  Somewhere, out there, the Grand Master himself is smiling upon us and showering us with small grappling-related miracles.  It's up to us to recognize them.  Here's an example:  that time that you left your sweaty gi overnight in the trunk of your car and had to train the next day with the very same gi only to find that it was not quite as offensive as you expected it to be ... that was him looking over you.  Protecting you.

Jimmy Pedro is a Judo legend, with many accolades and titles to his name in his sport (2 bronze medals in the Olympics to top the list).  What a treat it is to see him rolling with Marcelo.  Yes, it appears to be a respectful roll and not an all out battle to the death, but it's still great.

  1. thank you Dstryr ! where else can you find Jimmy Pedro training jiu jitsu with one of best ever !!! definitely interesting to see Pedro immediately allow for Marcelo to have top turtle control, when i totally thought he'd go right a guard pass or something

  2. I'm sure he's giving up turtle because in judo they defend the takedown by flopping to the belly and landing in turtle position, defend 20 sec and they stand them up. How best to learn the bst defense than to give up your back to, quite possibly, the best in the world at attecking from the back?!

  4. In the spirit of Halloween - I feel like with a toothbrush stash Marcelo would make a F-ing phenomenal Charlie Chaplin.
