BJJ Match Study: Marcelo Garcia vs Xande Ribeiro


I’m a huge fan of breakdown videos. I really appreciate it when someone is able to watch a jiu jitsu match, see the details of what is going on, and actually takes the time to make a video explaining it all and sharing it. One of my favorite YouTube channels for this is DPS Breakdowns, but I just stumbled across this video from Ayrshire Grappler and I’m really enjoying it.

The video below goes into great detail explaining this match between two jiu jitsu legends, Marcelo Garcia and Xande Ribeiro. I’m still in the stage of learning where I feel like I’m only catching a small fraction of what actually goes in a high level black belt match. These match studies are extremely helpful to me when doing analysis of competition footage.

Perusing their channel it looks like there are a ton of great breakdown videos to watch. Really great work here. Looks like it’s time to binge watch some jiu jitsu….
