Xande Ribeiro vs Marcelo Garcia: Back Mount Clinic Continues

by Tom Reynolds on April 5, 2011

This is a great, quick no gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu match. Xande and Marcelo are two of the most recognizable names in BJJ today. Enjoy!

No Gi BJJ Breakdown

1:00 – Xande does a great job locking down Marcelo’s upper body with his right shoulder.  Marcelo bridges, but Xande takes mount. Marcelo immediately gets active for the escape, scoots his shin in and sits up for the sweep.

1:40 – Marcelo reaches back to break Xande’s guard, but he doesn’t control Xande’s hips.  Xande in turn goes for a kneebar.

3:10 – Xande tries to setup a standing sweep, but Marcelo uses his base to prevent it.  He then locks down Xande’s hips with his shoulder and passes the guard acrobatically.

3:40 – Marcelo pulls off a slick back take. Watch how Marcelo keeps his body positioned dead center behind Xande. This is how the back mount is supposed to look.
