MG In Action

If you haven’t seen this site yet, you definitely need to check it out!  MGInAction gives you access to Marcelo Garcia’s lessons, strategies, and sparring sessions held at his school in New York City.

If you like watching videos on YouTube, then you can guess how the format works.  This site is better though because the clips are much more informative and in depth.  If you like watching instruction DVDs, you will also find this site superior because of it’s easy-to-navigate archives.  I always hate wading through extra footage before finding what I want to see–not here!

Best of all, you can organize queues and playlists based on topic.   Having trouble with guard passing?  Check out some of Marcelo’s best lessons and save them for later.  Want to watch some guillotine setups?  You can line up clips of Marcelo cinching them while rolling.

The “in action” section of the site is probably the best feature.  As you study the techniques you’re most interested in, you can watch the lessons and then immediately see instances in which Marcelo sets up and executes each move while rolling.  Personally, I often have difficulty translating what I see on video to live sparring.  The “in action” clips are really helpful for me because I can see all the different scenarios in which to use the move.

I’m a new member to the site, and I look forward to seeing how it advances my game over the next few months!  I already feel like I’m starting to “see” more than I did before: I’m feeling a little more aware of how theory and technique flow together.

If you want a one-week trial to the site, click here (or on the banner to the right) and check it out!  Some of my training partners have been telling me about it, and I regret not signing up sooner.  The price is $25 per month, but there’s no risk to the trial period.  Take a look and let us know what you think!

      I’m watching video every chance I get. Unfortunately, it’s not as much as I like, so I’m setting up playlists to get to during Winter Break. It’s another great feature of the site because, if you have a memory like mine, tracking down stuff you once liked on YouTube can be a challenge!
