Anybody can be beaten

Sometimes while training I can start believing that certain people are impossible for me to beat. It might be that I've trained with someone for years and never seem to get anything to work against him.

That is when I like to watch Terere against Marcelo Garcia in 2003. It is a reminder that we are all mortal. Even back then passing Marcelo's x-guard, controlling the side mount, taking his back and submitting him must have been a daunting task.

Even while they where rivals on the mat, Marcelo helped raise money for Terere when he was struggling. Nice!
