Marcelo Garcia, Five-Time World Champion, Brazilian Grappler and Jiu-Jitsu. Widely considered the best pound for pound Submission Grappler in the World.

“In his physiological state, he is like you’re fighting an ape.

It’s really simian, physical, intelligent, just wild.

I mean, his lats are like hands in the precision of how they close around your neck.

It’s pretty amazing.

But there’s a Confidence that he goes into things with.

And it’s the kind of thing where you can walk into a room, where No One Believes in you, but yourself.

But your Self-Belief is so Profound, that you are Unstoppable.

If you try to deconstruct it, that kind of Sense of Inevitability of Success … it comes from Self-Expression.

Knowing that you’re Playing Your Game and you’re Playing Your Game Better than Anyone Else In The World.

You Build Everything around the Uniqueness of Who You Are.

There are moments I remember when Marcelo was fighting Calasans (BJJ World Champion) … and Calasans went for a wrist-lock … and Marcelo pulled out …

And then … Marcelo put his hand right back into a “wrist lock” … and looked Calasans directly in the eye and basically said “go ahead, try it” … and just starred him right in the eye as Calasans tried and failed to grip …

So he didn’t try to Avoid the technique, he just tried to Break this man, by putting himself into The Thing … and saying, “you Will Not … you Can Not Break Me.” 

You can Break Someone, by Being Unbreakable.

There is something about that Self-Belief that is All-Powerful.

Marcelo shared, “Everyone is the same for the first two minutes. Everyone has a chance to win. But after that, you start to separate physically and Mentally.”

“I was never for winning championships. My happiness came from the pleasure I had simply Testing Myself.”
