Reviews - What do customers think about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Submission Grappling Techniques (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu series)?
Excellent - solid explanations, lots of pics, good quality publishing Sep 13, 2008
I bought this book as an experience white belt (read: about a year of BJJ), after reading the excellent, but light-on-technique "Mastering JuJitsu" (5 stars on it's own). Obviously you'll never truly learn BJJ from a book, but it certainly helps. Joyler is kind of a secret hero for me since we're both skinny little guys.
If you're looking for a book with lots and lots of techniques, this is a great first step. Even if you manage to find a better one, this money will not be wasted. The pics are large and from multiple angles, in color, and match the descriptions. The explanations are clear and detailed, pointing out danger spots.
At the risk of sounding crass (which I kind of am) I've stored this book in my bathroom and that works well. You can just open it to any page and start reading a technique.
Great for Gi and No-gi grapplers alike Apr 6, 2007
This book just like most in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu series can help improve your game tremendously. The book begins with a great theory section where Royler diverges secrets to training and becoming a champion among other great points. Sections on grips and drills are a great addition to the book. Grips are especially important to discuss when talking about grappling without a Gi since there is a whole new set. There is a good amount of techniques from any position that will work in Gi and no Gi situations. The authors credentials speak for themselves and this book is a great addition to any Jiu-Jitsu library it becomes a part of. Buy this book and you won't be sorry.
A good guide, but not for beginners. Dec 14, 2006
As a more seasoned student of jiu-jitsu, I found this book to be a great addition to my library. It may even help me defeat my wife (a purple belt) one day. It is very detailed in its description of techniques but a beginner would be hard pressed to benefit from it (reason for 4 stars). Royler is a legend in jiu-jitsu and commands great respect as an authority on the sport, providing validity to this book. I have a number of the guides and they are all great. This is a good addition to a practitioner's library.
Great Book, with Great Instructors in it. May 13, 2006
This book is very good for someone who wants to learn submission wrestling, or someone who wants to add to the submission game. In my case I compete in gi, and have never fought in no gi, so getting this book, really helped me take what I learned with the gi, and make changes for when I don't have the gi. Very good instruction. Plus the instructors in it are unbelievable. I fight for Royler Gracie and David Adiv, but David Adiv is the one who trains me since he lives in the US, and he alone is Roylers best black belt, David Adiv puts out the best Fighters, and him and Royler together are great to learn from. Very good book. Highly suggest it to any fighter.
One of the Best in the Series! Feb 2, 2006
Another in what has become a rapidly growing series (mostly co-written by Kid Pelligro) from Invisible Cities Press, backed by the same UAE Shiek who holds the ADCC Submission Grappling Championships (now every two years), ADCC legend Royler Gracie (son of Helio) returns to share techniques expressly designed for no-Gi/Kimono Submission Grappling.
This volume is giant step up from the previous two. Not only are the techniques rock solid, the organization is excellent (heck, there's organization!) and Royler goes through everything from getting grips (tricky without the cloth to hold on to), to takedowns, passing the guard, submissions from top and from the guard, sweeps, etc.
The text portion covers rules, strategies, and other important aspects of ADCC-style Submission Grappling, and the photos. like the rest of the series, are bright, full color, and with alternate angles when necessary.
It's unfortunate it took the series a few stumbles to get on track, but awesome that if finaly found such great form!
