Marcelo Garcia was no doubt one of the best grapplers to grace Jiu Jitsu. His smooth transitions, focus on submissions, and humble personality has endeared him to all.
That was what made Robert Drysdale’s super fast tap out of him all the more impressive. I remember I was watching from mat side just after having lost to Robert in overtime, and being in awe of how quick he dispatched Garcia with the Brabo Choke.
Kind of made me feel better about myself, lol!
So when he teaches the Brabo, I listen. Many of you will be surprised to hear that he doesn’t even consider it a choke. He has a few gold nuggets that will completely change your understanding of the technique, and help you finish it faster!
