Trying to learn. I'm only a white belt any suggestions?
The Gracie instructional books aren't bad, but I think video definitely works better.
Amazon.com: Jiu-Jitsu University (9780981504438): Saulo Ribeiro, Kevin Howell: Books
Jiu-Jitsu University Saulo Ribeiro, Kevin Howell. I think John Danaher was the technical editor too. Very good fundamentals.
vids and youtube work wonders too. Grapplearts - Submission Grappling, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, MMA and NHB, techniques, information, videos, DVDs is a pretty good site
I just got Jiu-Jitsu University and so far it's been a good read, seems like every time I talk about being a newb white belt with anyone at my academy they always seem to be quoting the book indirectly. Seems like the go-to book along with Mastering JuJitsu.
rampage would make a good book
I read a book by one of the machados that was pretty interesting I forget the name.
I think you should be all set for a minute with that Saulo book. Otherwise, you might check out the Andre Galvao book that just came out -- "Drill to Win" -- since it's all about movement in jiu-jitsu.
By the way, have fun training. Don't worry too much about what you don't know: it's an endless road, and that's the beauty of it.
