Marcos provides, an in depth analysis and breakdown of a roll between two great black belt competitors at the request of some fans via social media.
My instructor, Marcos, asked me to help him narrate this video since he had some requests the last time he posted a video of himself rolling with Marcelo Garcia. I helped him and this was the result. There is a lot of value in this for you all, but it was so cool helping him create this and watching him break the roll down in his mind and share interesting tid bits about training with Marcelo. Cool stuff indeed! For those of you working up to your black belt, I highly suggest you watch this. As a purple belt, myself, I found this very helpful and will be working some of this against training partners who like the X-Guard game.
Marcelo Garcia Rolling with Marcos “Yemaso” Torregrosa
It is so much fun to watch Marcelo Garcia rolling. Just, wow, really.
This is a video where Marcos Torregrosa gives some insight into his game as it expressed itself while rolling with Marcelo Garcia. Marcos goes over things that worked and why as well as things that didn’t work and why they were not effective.
The last video posted was Marcelo Garcia rolling with Marcos NoGi and it was asked to have some breakdown of the match. I hope this is helpful for many.
I know I definitely learn a lot from watching Marcelo Garcia rolling. His game is fluid, it is very resilient, it doesn’t depend much on speed, and he seems to have a very good understanding of where he should be even in positions that aren’t as common as closed guard and such.
