Luta Livre – Marcelo Brigadeiro

Marcelo Brigadeiro is a Luta Livre Black Belt under Marcio Cromado from RFT Team in Brazil. Many times champion of the best submission-wrestling tournaments, he is the only fighter to win three times the Brazilian National Championship of Submission and seven times the Rio de Janeiro State Championship of Submission.

I caught up with Brigadeiro while he was teaching at Team Kaobon in Liverpool England, at the time home to a number of UFC fighters including Terry Etim, Paul Sass amongst others, and more recently Darren Till.

Luta Livre is a no-gi submission wrestling style, very effective for MMA.

While filming with Brigadeiro I picked up a huge number of submissions, setups and variations that would not normally be taught within BJJ or many MMA schools that take their submission lineage from BJJ. Well recommended for grapplers, gi or no-go, as well as for MMA.
