This sounds like a job for git subtree. Here's an extended article on it: 

So, first you want to move A and B out of the way:

mv A ..
mv B ..

Now initialize MAIN into being a git repository:
git init

Now, add A and B as subtrees:

git subtree add --prefix A ../A master
git subtree add --prefix B ../B master
Job done!

Note that if you don't have the git subtree command in your Git 
installation, see the above mentioned blogpost for instructions on how to 
get it working.
