Customer Rating: Summary: Failed expectations Comment: I bought this book specifically because it was authored by Wally Jay an instructor whom I have the up most respect for. As I was familiar with his students success in competition and the quality of his Club success's over the years, I expected great pictures and techniques. I was hoping to gain insight and further understanding of the arts the book would demonstrate that I knew from my study and experience with the Kodenkan JuJitsu system. What I learned was not worth the price of the book. Just label me as disappointed. Customer Rating: Summary: Good, but I prefer "Small Circle..." Comment: I guess the only reason I didn't rate this book higher is that I owned "Small Circle Jujitsu" for years, and this is kind of an abridged version of that book. This book sort of gets down to bare basics of the Small Circle style, but provides what may be simpler explainations of the small-circle theory. The pictures are of poor quality, as is the print, but the techniques are OK. Once again, throws and chokes using the gi are featured, with a handful of gi-less techniques. Revival techniques, breakfalls and rolling, and wrist-extention excersises are featured at the beginning of the book. There are an assortment of wrist- and fingerlocks shown, as well as a variety of chokes. The throws section looks a little bare. This might be a good book for bouncers or other people who need to "evict" or control hostiles without punching them out; a lot of the locks are shown as being used to lift an opponent off the floor in a controled possition. I'd say get this only if you can't afford "Small Circle Jujitsu" by Prof. Jay.
