Reviews - What do customers think about Ultimate Choking Techniques (Masterclass Brazilian Jiu Jitsu)?

If "Ultimate" means "last" - good  Mar 26, 2008
I bought this book because an earlier review said it was mostly judo chokes. A further review intimated that something more than standard judo was presented. I would challange both! I have rarely been so disappointed in a book. The strangles are basic and demonstrated against a "dummy" opponent and strange starting positions. Some are pure fantasy. Is a "full nelson" a strangle? There are far better books on Brazilian Ju-jitsu (most of them, in fact), and far better books on judo strangles and chokes see The Grappler's Book of Strangles and Chokes. It is over photographed with sometimes 4 photographs required to show a simple change of hand position - Bruce Tegner lives on. Some of the best parts are the author's expressions when applying the techniques. Masterclass it ain't.
Judo vs BJJ  Mar 14, 2008
The previous review dismisses this book based on the fact that the chokes are in judo and therefore aren't BJJ chokes, BJJ comes from Judo and many of same techniques are used in both disciplines. I haven't read the book, so I can't comment on the quality, I just wanted it to be made know that Newaza Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu have a great degree of overlap due to their common origins. The differences are more in the rules, how much time is spend on the ground, and the smoothness of transition (BJJ being smoother), and more submissions in BJJ including leg locks etc. Most people, including Judoka, consider BJJ to be superior on the ground but Judo is better in the stand up and takedown areas. So the previous criticism should be taken with a grain of salt.
