This past weekend the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Championships were held in Rio de Janeiro. Alliance superstar Marcelo Garcia took gold in the middleweight division, defeating the tough André Galvão in the finals. He’s one of only a handful of guys who dominate ADCC (Submission Wrestling/No-gi) and the Mundial (Gi). We’ve been lucky to have Marcelinho visit us at Alliance Canada numerous times. Not only is he one of the best grapplers on the planet, he’s also an incredible instructor. Look for Marcelo to visit again in the near future.
