    I think I am stating the obvious here but Eddie's seminar is on July 22 and Marcelo's seminar is on August 26 and 27. Why not do them both? If I had to choose, I'd go with Marcelo. Love those arm drags.

Also, to be honest, after enduring a couple of years of Brazilian black belt Portuglish, it was a relief to get instruction in fluent English. I don't know what Garcia's language skills are like, but you might take that into account.
    The DVDs I have of him are him speaking Portuguese with English dubbed over it; judging from this, he will probably be speaking through an interpreter.

    BTW, worst "Portuglish" ever: in a Vitor Belfort instructional I downloaded, he said he was "very know about boxing." There was more, but that's all I remember and I deleted the file.

    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    I'd love to learn from either, but I'm not flexible enough to do the **** I see eddie do, so I'd probably pass on his seminar.

    I am a huge Marcelo Garcia fan and even though I have two of his series DvD sets I would still love attend one of his seminars.

    The Garcia seminars seem to be more elusive than Bravo seminars. Besides you can just go to CA and attend a week at Eddie's school.

    So Aeso, what's the verdict here? Did you decide or have you already gone? We need a sit rep on your experience.

    Did I ever tell you that you were a mean fucker? Yeah, well anyway. When the tension has built, the pressure is released and the *@$ lands on the %^&ches face. Let us know how the seminar with Garcia went. The maybe I'll tell you about training with Tinguinha.
