Summary: Very good.
Comment: A fine companion to the first book. Solid in melding striking with standing grappling.

Summary: A unique JKD look at grappling strategy
Comment: I really liked a lot of the material in this book. It really stands out because Sifu Hartsell does not simply give us a bunch of random grappling techniques. Instead he gives us techniques and strategies that truly reflect the techniques and ideas of the Jeet Kune Do fighting method. I particularly liked the section that dealt with using the JKD trapping tools as a defense against grappling attacks. It is this aspect and the various clinch strategies that make his book a worthy addition to a JKD practitioner's library. On the downside, you must remember that this book was published in 1987 and so it does not take into account a lot of modern day grappling/submissions knowledge. As a result, some of the material (especially the stuff that deals with groundfighting, joint locks and submission) seems dated by today's standards. Nevertheless, you'll still find plenty of valuable stuff in this book.

Summary: Add Grappling to your Martial art.
Comment: This book presents problem situations and gives you the best grappling solutions from Jujitsu, Kali, Aikido, Western Wrestling etc. I cannot think how this book could have been made better. Although this book is the second in a series on grappling showing some reversals of moves made in the first book I think this book stands on its own as it shows the original moves. In other words if you can afford both books buy both if you just want to buy one book - get this one. Every technique is explained with the aid of clear step by step photographs. There is a great section on what to do in the stand up tie up position (Boxer's clinch) which occurs frequently in street fights. All you need is this book and someone to practise on.

Summary: Excellent book for both the beginner and experienced MArtist
Comment: As a white belt beginning my training in my mid 30's, with all the responsibility of work, home, and kids, and squeezing in 3 classes a week, while training at home in my own garage, now gym, I found this book to be an excellent reference to review at home, or to help me work out techniques that I may have had difficulty with. My sensei has ordered the book as a general reference for our dojo. Both the beginner and experienced martial arts practitioner can benefit from the easy to follow pictures and written explanations of each technique.
