    The following was in the FAQ section. Is it still relevant or is there better stuff out there now? Just looking for resources. Specifically on passing the guard.

    16. What books can get me started on learning BJJ?


    For BJJ: Saulo Ribeiro's "Encyclopedia of Jiu Jitsu" is probably the best general book. On specific topics, "The Guard," "Passing the Guard," and "Strategic Guard" by Ed Benneville are all excellent. So is Rodrigo Gracie's "The Path to BlackBelt" and Kid Peligro's "Essential Guard."

    17. What is the best video instructional for BJJ or nogi grappling?

    For BJJ with a gi, Saulo Ribeiro's Revolution One is currently the best general BJJ instructional. For nogi grappling, Saulo Ribeiro's Freestyle Revolution set is probably the best general instructional. There are also many other fantastic instructionals on more specific grappling subjects and individual competitor styles ... use the search function.

    Pay really good attention, because you won't see this nowhere else.

    Some sherdoggers were saying it wasn't a good instructional
