Reviews - What do customers think about Ultimate Fighting Techniques (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu series)?
No Complaints Feb 14, 2008
Just like I said about UFT vol.2,this is a sport bjj book for begginners.About one in every four moves shown in this book can be translated to mma competition. The moves inside are divided up as follows; 1)Takedowns-22 moves 2)Guard Passes and The Turtle Position-21 moves 3)Side Control-17 moves 4)Mount-17 moves. 5)Rear Mount-8 moves. Once again,Royce links the moves together and this is an excellent book.
Great reference, with reservations. Jan 3, 2008
This is a great reference book on BJJ techniques. However, I do agree with other readers that this book really does not cover UFC technicalities (i.e. strikes). Would definitely recommend for someone studying ground techniques but not for NHB/UFC training.
Great Book! Jan 11, 2007
Any fan of Jiu-Jitsu will love this book! My husband read it constantly. Great illustrations and step-by-step directions on how to do each move. A++
Ultimate Fighting Techniques Dec 12, 2006
Royce Gracie is at his simplistic best,Teaching moves that are simple and will be remembered in the ring. Royce Gracie is the only man in octagon history to defeat 3 oppenents in one night 3times to win the first 3 out of 4 UFC Championships.
Plenty of pictures but very few submissions Nov 29, 2006
This book will teach you a lot of very basic drills and ways to move from an offensive position to a stronger offensive position and in many cases teaches you how to defend those same advances. The book has very little about armbars, leg locks and figure 4 triangle leg chokes (although it does have a really cool one to use if you're already mounted past your opponents guard). You'll become efficient at understanding terms like guard, half guard, mount, back, side control and how to move from one position to a stronger using proven techniques. I give the book 5 stars because the techniques presented are well taught using pictures and easy to understand language. This book focuses mainly on techniques used to attack your opponent, today I'm ordering the second book of the series on ground game defense, after all, there's nobody better at defending a ground position than Royce.
