There’s nothing quite like watching a smaller, lighter, weaker person use their technique to defeat a bigger, heavier, stronger opponent.
And when it comes to tapping out bigger, stronger, heavier opponents there’s nobody quite like Marcelo Garcia.
Not only is he a four time world BJJ champion and three time ADCC champion in his weight class, but he’s often fought in the absolute division as well. In fact he’s faced weight disadvantages of a hundred pounds or more, and has almost always emerged victorious!
Here’s a video we shot at his NYC academy where Marcelo actually breaks down his best strategies and favorite techniques for both sweeping and tapping out larger opponents.
Go watch it now: it’s really good! And believe me, he defeats larger, stronger guys with these exact techniques ALL the time!!
P.S. While we’re talking about fighting larger opponents check out this 5 DVD Set I filmed with 3 x World Champion Emily Kwok.
Emily trains with Marcelo and has basically ‘reverse-engineered’ his game. It’s full of techniques, drills, strategies, and tips to Defeat the Bigger, Stronger Opponent. Since I produced it I’m clearly biased but it’s really good and has gotten amazing reviews from grapplers large and small!
