BJJ Match Study: Marcelo Garcia vs Renzo Gracie

Last updated on 05.05.2020 by

A quick match study of Renzo Gracie vs. Marcelo Garcia. The two met in the quarterfinal at ADCC in 2003.

Gracie does a great job of defending, but Garcia always has an answer. He is a master of simplicity in Jiu-jitsu.

In the video, you can see Garcia use the over/under, arm drag, back take, and of course the x guard. Elementary and basic techniques that he can do from many different positions.

It is tough for Gracie to make adjustments due to MG’s constant offensive pressure. Garcia never plays defense. His offense is his defense.
