who are best jitsu players training under marcelo i cant find anyone
I was afraid you meant "Team Garcia"
Sorry, don't know any of Marcelinho's fighters
Aw, I'm majorly disappointed you didn't mean Team Garcia. The list of Team Garcia fighters is small, but mighty.
Don't know his last name, but Jimmy (purple belt lightweight) that works at Garcias NYC academy is awesome. I know there are others who weresuper impressive at nogi pan, but I don't know their names.
I second that. Jimmy tuned me up pretty good last year.
I wish I could have rolled with him this year, but he was injured.
Marcelo's NYC school is fairly new, so I don't think you will see people at higher belts any time soon from that school.
I can tell you from personal experience that the whole school is very good. The asian looking guy, blue belt, who is in the early MGinAction videos was really good too. Caught me in 3 guillotines.
Ii really love rolling at that school when on vacation. It seems like the guys are always going at a fast pace, which is fine with me.
If you look at the results from the NY Pan it seems like they did fairly well this year.
I think Marcelo's most notable student aside from Jimmy is Henrique Resende. He won gold at the nogi pans this year. I would say in another year or so you're going to see a lot of talent coming out of our school
