Product Description

From the Back Cover

Learn the techniques of a jiu-jitsu legend that will make your competition beg for mercy

"We're very lucky to have a guy like Eddie in the world of martial arts and even luckier that he's willing to teach what he knows. I truly believe that when all is said and done this book will become one of the most important books ever written on martial arts."
--Joe Rogan, martial artist and host of NBC's "Fear Factor"

In Jiu-Jitsu Unleashed, world-renowned martial artist Eddie Bravo reveals the moves that he used to defeat legendary Brazilian fighter Royler Gracie and that have made him one of the most feared competitors in the martial arts. A complete system that includes original ground fighting and submission techniques that can quickly subdue even the most vicious opponents--both in the ring and on the street--Bravo's "no-gi" style represents an evolutionary leap forward in the ancient Japanese art of jiu-jitsu.

Whether you're a complete beginner looking for practical self-defense techniques or a competitive martial artist who wants to incorporate Bravo's killer techniques into your fighting strategy, Jiu-Jitsu Unleashed is for you. With the help of nearly 300 superb, step-by-step photographs, featuring "Fear Factor" host Joe Rogan, Bravo shares with you his winning pointers on:

  • Basic and advanced techniques from the Half Guard, Rubber Guard, mount, and back positions, including the author's signature move, "The Twister."
  • How to combine techniques into unstoppable combinations
  • Sophisticated training and competing theories and strategies

Format: Paperback
When I first bought this book in 2005 I was impressed. It had lots of unusual techniques and concepts which I hadn't seen elsewhere. But martial arts books have moved on. This is a small format book, which illustrates each technique with one or two black-and white photographs and a minimal amount of text. Eddie has since co-authored three large format, colour books (Mastering the Rubber Guard, Mastering the Twister, Advanced Rubber Guard). These later books cover the same techniques, but build on them and refine them. The newer books illustrate each technique with several, large colour photographs showing the technique from a range of angles and featuring detailed explanations. Going back to "Jiu-Jitsu Unleashed" now that I am familiar with the newer books, it is clear that the latter are far superior. In the newer books, Bravo frequently refers to "Jiu-Jitsu Unleashed", stating that he has since found a better way of doing something in that earlier book, or improved on those techniques. As such, my recommendation to anyone who was interested in Bravo's system would be to skip "Jiu-Jitsu Unleashed" in favour of Bravo's other books.

Not a book for a beginner, but if you know what you're doing already then this is a great book to get some tips to advance your game. Been trying out some of the techniques & they are top notch - although you need to be insanely flexible to pull some of them off :)

Format: Paperback
For those who have never seen or studied Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, it is a formidable grappling art, where a player's goal is to gain dominant position on his/her opponent and strive to finish by submitting them ( or accumulating more points than there adversory.) As tried and tested as the art is, often when watching Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)or No Holds Barred (NHB) event, you will often see truly world class Jiu-Jitsu guys having difficulty achieving either good position, or submission. This, as Eddie repeatedly points out, is all due to the standard use of the gi/kimonoe. Bravo refers to the gi as "the problem." It is all well and good if you train jiu-jitsu with the gi, and have no designs on entering MMA or no gi grappling competitions. But if your intention is to fight in those such events, then it is imperative to your game that you lose those "bad gi habits." If your opions are training with the gi, or not training at all then obviously the former is preferable, however, if all your set-ups for sweeps, transitions and submissions are based around clinging ( and it is clinging ) onto your opponents gi, then what will you do when you enter that cage or squared circle, and the guy across from you isn't wearing a jacket? All your leverage goes out the window, and you are forced to play a defensive game. In my opinion no fighter should want to approach a fight defensivley. It's contrary to the whole idea of a fight. Of course you must have good defense as part of your repitiore, but only resort to it when absolutely neccesary. As competitors we should be looking to always finish. this is essential for a few reasons. Firstly if you are competing in an elimination tournament, then you want to progress through the rounds as quickly as possible to conserve precious energy.Read more ›

This book is a great read and has loads of information and ideas but is basically just Eddie Bravo's own brand of Jui-Jitsu and the whole book tries to sell the no-gi grappling approach which is more and more popular with UFC. In this book you'll find all Bravo's own inventions which all work great, but if you're looking for a book which grounds you in either the basic Japanese or Brazilian martial art its best to look elsewhere. This is really a book for people who already know their stuff and want to get an edge on the competition, and for that it works amazingly.

basically the publishers limited what eddie could put in it, so for a full detailed analysis of his game and system buy mastering the rubber guard and mastering the twister. There is no guard passing in theses books but there are plenty of books around who go into detail about that part of no gi bjj.
