Marcelo Garcia utilizing his "Marcelotine" at ADCC

Marcelo Garcia is in the IBJJF hall of fame, and has won gi Worlds at black belt 5x and ADCC 4x.  Marcelo is considered by many to be the best sport bjj competitor of all time.  He is good from every position, guard, passing, sweeping, and submitting.  Marcelo has, in our opinion, the best guillotine in the sport, hands down.  He constantly hunts the submission and lets the points come as he puts his opponents on the defense, he was notorious for the high elbow guillotine.  He would punch up on the neck making a fist, and then use a high elbow technique over his opponents shoulder, as seen in the picture above.  The high elbow stopped his opponents from putting shoulder pressure and would tighten the choke.  An extremely high percentage guillotine that can be finished  and applied from bottom side, half guard, full guard, standing, in butterfly, and virtually anytime the neck is available and it is very hard for your opponent to use his shoulder as defense!  Marcelo has the most incredible timing and would constantly catch people in guillotines.
