Discussion in 'Grappling Technique' started by Ghostdogg, Aug 10, 2010.
any good books about bjj that are helpful or informative?
Jiu Jitsu University by Saulo Riberio is a terrific technique book.
the renzo and royler book is good for basics
Mastering jujitsu by renzo Gracie and John danaher. Explains the philosophy and reasoning of bjj better than any other book I've seen.
what about rodrigo gracie books?
renzo book and saulo's look to be the best ones
I have many but this is my favorite. Saulo is pure class.
Just got this a few months ago and got a TON out of it, even after 4+ years of training.
ok i think im going to get saulo book
Another vote for the Saulo book!
Only book I still have to flick through every now and then.
Well, that and Mastering the Rubber Guard and Mastering the Twister. ^_-
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Book - Grappling Arts Publications
these books have the best layout of any bjj book i have seen
like they have flow charts and shit.
has enough pics so you can really see what they are doing.
passing the guard, the guard, and the strategic guard are the names of the books.
saulo's is good also
Read the FAQ. Is there any mods on this forum? This same question is asked once a month, and instead of directing the TS to the FAQ and locking the thread, everyone just responds the exact same answer. The grappling community is too nice.
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 Black Belt" and Kid Peligro's "Essential Guard."
...there's a FAQ? ^_-
P.S. Would be happy to assist in modding on here, if anyone wanted. Doubt I'd be here all the time, but since this is the only forum I post in, might be better than a general one who's not here all the time? Probably shouldn't just offer, but hey. Throwing it out there. ^_-
if we didn't talk about the same shit all the time there would be like 2 new threads a day.
ok, some of us like to goof around at work.
Or maybe there would be some useful and intelligent discussion?
Oli, you have my vote for mod if you explain your views on global warming and abortion, and how the grappling forum is affected by these issues.
Also we should rename moderators as dictators, as this is a better definition of the work they do. And then instead of calling them mods for short, we can call them dics, another more specific definition.
Vote for Oli as a mod.
The Guard, Passing the Guard and Strategic Guard
The Essential Guard
Get on Mr. Menstrual there.
this is a grappling forum.
so you would rather have people sift through pages of ancient threads to find shit on commonly discussed grappling topics so we can discuss global warming.
global warming is like war room MB not grappling. maybe you should go there to have intellectual discussions.
there is nothing wrong with the hundred of gi vs nogi and will bravo get a red belt and i just got my blue belt and what video is best for a beginner and what bjj books are good.
-these are intelligent discussions as far as grappling is concerned.
now threads like "i went to first class today and instructor heel hooked me and ripped my legs apart and then put some Grey Poupon on and ate them" are just BS troll threads and those can go.
or if you see a thread title something like "bjj books" just don't fucking open it.
DING! Right off the bat.
