Marcelo Time

Marcelo Garcia vs Shinya Aoki at ADCC 2005 featured an MMA Superstar from Japan in Aoki and one of the best BJJ guys in the world in Marcelo Garcia.  The back take that Marcelo uses is one that I learned in the GI.  In the GI you use the belt to help keep the elbow pressure to take the back.  It is funny that I see this video now, when I went to Thailand I had not trained NoGi for the first time in awhile so I was pretty accustomed to using the belt.  I found myself in this position and had to figure out how to make it work and even if it would even work NoGi.  I managed to figure it out after a couple of days of looking at the position but wish I would have seen this video for a little help back then.
