Finally: THE Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Book! Mar 2, 2008
What I have been wanting is a book that treats the full sport of gi BJJ. While BJJ is such a complex game that you can never really encompass all of it in a book, you certainly can select the most important movements and cover all of them in detail. This is what this book does: it has 83 fighting moves and 12 solo drills, covering everything you really need to know. Because of decades of experience under BJJ rules, which were devised in the 1970s, and an acceleration of skill very recently due to Jiu-jitsu's popularity soaring exponentially, the techniques found critical for competition nowadays are not quite those classic movements relied upon twenty or thirty years ago. The pivotal moves in today's world are quite fascinating and often counterintuitive and complex. Since overly simplistic movements are often easily stopped with simple defences, the moves that tend to be effective in high level fighting today are those that are less predictable in their development, are easily altered in the middle, and involve changing the angles of pressure on your opponent through a series of shifts and grip changes. The single-minded sport focus of the book is very reassuring for any buyer looking for a full treatment of the sport of Jiu-jitsu, as I was. Also it is wonderful that the book does not deal with MMA or no-gi submission wrestling. It is very focussed on what it treats, and it treats it as fully as any book could ever be expected to. This is a masterpiece of a book and I think it could serve as an excellent model for books treating any other combat sports.
Extremely well put together... Apr 21, 2007
I first saw this book in Barnes and Noble and ended up buying it here. I looked at some of the other books on BJJ and they seem a bit empty. This book was very detailed on transitions and technique.
I would have to rank Championship Techniques right up there with Judo Unleashed which is a terrific book.
Championship Techniques Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Mar 12, 2006
I think "Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Championship Techniques" is a good reference book for anyone practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, that wants techniques that can improve their game. I like the layout of the book, it's easy to read and the photos are clear. This is a good book for any Martial Artist to have in their collection.
Excellent presentation of moves Oct 21, 2005
While this book is like many other grappling books it does a very good job of depicting the moves and capturing the key positions of each move. I tend to read/view the book in key areas and then practice these moves during training sessions. This works well for me.
Another winner from Machado Jul 27, 2005
Championship Grappling is essentially the prequel to Jean Jacques Machado's other book "Black Belt Techniques", and provides a solid basis of jiu jitsu movements, techniques, combinations and concepts.
As usual, Kid Peligro lays out a series of techniques with excellent easy-to-understand pictures and explanations.
This book is geared towards teaching the basics, but even advanced level jiu jitsu students will find many concepts, techniques and combinations to explore on the mats.
