Marcello Garcia Acadamy vs. Renzo Gracie Acadamy

I am curous to know everyone's opinion on Garcia opening his gym in NYC. Does anyone think that it will take students away from Renzo who had the lock on BJJ training in NYC for over 10 years? I barely train BJJ I alwaysed trained Muay Thai and now Kali, but with Marcello arrival to NYC I am considering training BJJ full-time at Alliance everyone sas he is a awesome instructor..

He is just starting out as an instructor. He is a great competitor, yes. We'll see how that translates into teaching. You'll need to give him some time to produce. Fabio Clemente has been around longer than Renzo and I can't name one student he's produced on par with the likes of Riacrdo Almeida, Rodrigo Gracie, Sean Alvarez, Amal Easton, or the Serra brothers. We'll have to wait and see.

You can't go wrong with Renzo Gracie. Renzo's a great guy and I believe the caliber of the students that he produces speaks for itself.

On the other hand, I've had several lessons with Marcelo (seminars + a private). He's an excellent teacher and nice guy. He's very technical and was genuinely concerned with my understanding of the techniques. My only reservation about Marcelo is his English. He struggles to find the correct word in English at times. However, this wasn't that big a hinderance as he was still able to get his point across by demonstrating what he meant.

This has happened to Ricco before in ADCC. Hayato Sakurai finished him in an absolute division match.

I've heard from people that have gone to his seminar and have had private lessons with him say that hes a great teacher and went into detail explaining the moves. I wonder how much hes going to charge per month.

Hopefully less than Renzo. Those prices are unbelievable.

I would go check it out if I lived in NYC. Either way, you get to train with a legend.
