Reviews - What do customers think about Ultimate Jujutsu: Principles and Practices?

Outstanding overview  Jun 28, 2007
The information contained in the text is an outstanding overview of principles that are used in not only Jujitsu, but all martial arts. A must for the true martial artist.
What Traditional Jujutsu is SUPPOSED to Look Like  Aug 16, 2006
I saw one of the reviews on this page that gave the book one star because he said it looked more like karate than jujutsu...which tells me right there that this person (the reviewer) has no clue what real jujutsu is all about. Because of Brazilian JJ and mixed-martial arts too maybe folks today think Jujutsu is all about rolling around on the floor; but a study of the traditional ryu shows that atemi-waza (striking) and keri-waza (kicking) were ALWAYS significant parts of the art. How much of an idiot would a samurai (the originators of the art) have been if they did matwork on the battlefield? For them it was all hit, move, hit, kill, move.

Shihan Maberry's fine book, ULTIMATE JUJUTSU, captures this very well, and perhaps for the first time in a book not written by a Japanese. Also, it includes some of the techniques I had to be be in jujutsu for 20 years to learn.

Overall: five golden stars from this jujutsuka. Osu!
Great Book on JUJITSU  Jun 15, 2006
I don't know what some of those other guys were talking about, this is by no means a karate book. It tells the history if Jujitsu, how the basic principles work, and shows a lot of the basic and advanced techniques. It's not a strict how-to book (you need a class for that), but it's great as a how-to-understand how-to book, if you get what I mean.
Smart Book for Jujutsu People  May 23, 2006
This is a different kind of martial arts book. It goes for the brain rather than the fist. Instead of a how-to book, it's a book on how the art itself works, from the core. Very nice.
Bad form  May 18, 2006
I didn't see much traditional jujitsu, mostly karate stuff with a little judo tossed in.
