I was very happy to have him as a follower. He has always been a trustful, loyal friend who has a lot of qualities.
Marcello C. Monteiro likes to give emphasis to the secret and important details that can ease the execution of each position. He began to give classes many years ago, helping me at my academy and nowadays he follows his own steps teaching very advanced levels of jiu-jitsu.
He is a great professional, with much experience. He has already turned jiu-jitsu beginners into State, Brazilian National, and world champions
"Monteiro is a champion who likes to make champions."
His students are fortunate to have him as a teacher and his presence is missed a lot here in Rio de Janeiro.
