I have recently gotten Eddie Bravo's JJ Unleashed book. It makes some very bold statements. Such as BJJ has become stagnated for MMA and BJJ not translating well to MMA. He said this is because some BJJ practisioners have become too used to holding onto the GI and when they fight MMA there is of course no Gi to hold onto. Do most of you agree that MMA training should be done without a GI or do most of you believe more like the Brazillians start out with a GI and then take the Gi off? This book technique-wise seems so far very good. One more question the book's copyright says 2006 so is this an advanced copy or do Publishers put out copyright dates in advance of the actual year?
