Editorial Reviews:

During the last decade, the martial arts world has looked to innovative mixed martial arts competitions such as the Ultimate Fighting Championship to determine which fighting style is the best. These contests have repeatedly shown the grappling style of martial arts, headed by Brazilian jiu-jitsu, to dominate. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu style stems from the premise, garnered from analysis of actual street fights, that the outcome of any fight is decided on the ground. While most martial arts deal only with the initial punching and kicking stages of combat, Brazilian jiu-jitsu concentrates on ground combat. This guide shows how to use Brazilian jiu-jitsu to increase combat effectiveness. Photographs and step-by-step instructions show how to master the techniques used in this exciting new form of combat.

Summary: Beautiful pictures, clear explanations. Good job.
Comment: I've bought this book to explore the BJJ world (I'm a Judoka). I find it very interesting and, above all, very clear. I like the intro, it made me understand the relations between Judo e BJJ as well as the differences. I was impressed by the pictures quality that helps a lot in understanding the techniques. Congratulations to Masters Renzo and Royler Gracie and to all the people which worked on this beautiful book.

Summary: This Book Will Grab You Quicker Than A 300 lbs. Gorilla In A Rear Naked Choke
Comment: The authors did a superb job in the layout and format of this book and the information that it contains is nothing short of first rate and very detailed. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy each technique was to initially grasp when reading this book. I think a lot of that had to do with the fact that the photographs are all in color and printed on glossy paper which makes it easier to distinguish the finer points and it really adds to the overall quality of the book.

The techniques themselves were clearly shown with numerous photographs per technique and the accompanying text to explain each technique was very detailed yet easy to understand and comprehend.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning jui-jitsu and/or MMA along with the following books.

Gracie Submission Essentials: Grandmaster and Master Secrets of Finishing a Fight (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu series)

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: For Experts Only

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Submission Grappling Techniques (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu series)

Here are two other books on wrestling and grappling that I am sure you would also find very beneficial.

Wrestling for Fighting: The Natural Way

Mixed Martial Arts: The Book of Knowledge

Martial Artist/Author of the Achieving Kicking Excellence series.

Summary: Very informative
Comment: This book not only took time to show you different angles of the each hold to use but also gave written instructions along with the incorrect ways to use the techniques. It also gave hints or tips into some moves that may make it work better.I wish I would of bought this earlier when I started Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. This is also a great book to help refresh on some techniques.
