MARCELO GARCIA
Advanced Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Techniques
With Marshal D. Carper & Glen Cordoza
presented by Victory Belt

It's easy to pigeon-hole Marcelo Garcia - the guy is the Thomas Edison of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

A five-time BJJ World Champion and a four-time ADCC Submission Grappling World Champion, Marcelo is the man to study if you want to elevate your game to the penthouse level of grappling.

Garcia's motto appears to be, if it's not broken, fix it anyway - it can always be better. It's this constant quest for improvement that has enabled him to remain the best of the best.

The Forward by child chess prodigy Josh Waitzkin is also a very informative and enjoyable read, although including Marcelo's email address in the book may not have been Josh's best `move'.

Of Garcia, Waitzkin says "Marcelo's repertoire is in a constant state of evolution, and experimentation is a key part of his process - he is often playing with things around the edges of his arsenal, testing, pushing his boundaries. This is part of how his game always tends to be one step ahead of his opponents"

Advanced Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Techniques is a totally unique training manual that provides alternate moves to baffle your adversaries with cutting-edge tactics. Marcelo hit the bulls eye with this publication.

In the world of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Marcelo Garcia needs no introduction. If you happened upon this title by perhaps searching for grappling books and are unfamiliar with his reputation, I'll explain it thusly: Garcia is a phenom. He is the type of BJJ practitioner that makes other black belts who have dedicated their lives to BJJ look like they haven't trained a day in their life when they compete against him. A cursory search on Youtube for Garcia's matches bears out this fact.

However, being an exceptional practitioner doesn't necessarily translate to an ability to convey that in an instructional manual. There are books out there by a great number of BJJ experts that are not successful in translating their expertise to the regular training Joe. That is not the case with this book. Garcia, with the help of Marshal Carper and Glen Cordoza, has been able to break down many of the techniques that make him a multi BJJ World Champion. Additionally, he provides the strategies behind the techniques that make them so successful, which, in my opinion, is even more valuable.

This book succeeds for several reasons. First, like many Victory Belt publications, the photography captures the techniques from both the typical and reverse angles. BJJ has been called a game of inches, and it is critical to see the positions of all the limbs in action during a technique. Second, the quality of the writing is top-notch. Often in martial arts books, the text takes a far back seat to the photography, much to the detriment of the overall instruction. Not the case here; it is well written and a pleasure to read. Third, much like Marcelo's game itself, it focuses on several key techniques: arm drags, back control, takedowns, guard passes and submissions.

Advanced Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Techniques by Marcello Garcia is another great title to be added to the grapplers library. Where as his first book, The X Guard, was very specific to one particular element of Garcia's style, ABJJT includes a broader approach to the art.
Anyone who has seen Marcelo Garcia compete can tell you he has a high technical ability and it shows in the book. The photos hit all the key points of the techniques and the text compliments and explains the nuances perfectly. Garcia is not a physically imposing fighter so the tiny details he shows in the book help explain how he got to the top of the grappling food chain.
My favorite part of the book (thus far) is the chapters on submissions. Garcia covers them all...chokes, armbars, omoplatas, and how to transition from one to another. Marcelo is an extremely fluid fighter so it is a safe bet that if he shows it, he has trial tested it in competition.
This book gets a five star rating. ABJJT and Jiu-jitsu University by Saulo Ribeiro would be a great combo for anyone looking to start BJJ or take their grappling game to a higher level.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The day I got this book I literally chose only two specific techniques and a counter as well used marcelo's approach to grappling(which is constantly attack)and later that same evening I passing guards with ease. The techniques and mindset of the book are great. The techniques because it is his exact game and it flows very smoothly together. The mindset has it's advantages being prepared not to prevent the opponents attack but preparing to counter his defense.

The only thing that keeps me from giving this book 5 stars is that they promote his website alot through out the book. Which is good for those people who already are members, but to promote it so hard they should have at least gave a one week free trial for us to use the book in conjunction with the site. I didn't like the approach of trying to sell me one thing after another.

All in all simple, effective jiu jitsu, with a great read on Marcelo's life. Hope this helps guys
