4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book on the grappling defense...with gi 15 Mar. 2012
By E. Chu - Published on
I just borrowed this book from the local library. It is well written with numerous pictures. It covers both basic BJJ defensive techniques as well as multiple variations to escape common dominant position. JJ Machado shows his true mastery of brazilian jiu-jitsu.

I am giving it four stars instead of five for a few little things. First, all the pictures are with the instructors wearing a gi. Second, while some of the techniques can be used for no-gi grappling or MMA, the book does not specify which ones until you read thru the captions. While comprehensive, it seems to primarily focus on traditional grappling with a gi at the expense of other methods.

Nevertheless, I am impressed and find it useful. It should be considered as a supplement if you have a martial arts library.

Despite the fact that this is volume 2, it is the most relevant book a beginner can read. Don't hesitate to start with this book before volume 1. The approach is instructional.

By Matthew Gore - Published on
Book is great if you want to learn solid escapes in BJJ. Not much no-gi examples but I train in mostly gi anyway so its all good. Easy explanation and some great escapes from the most used attacks. Highly recommend and one of the most used BJJ books that I own.. Osssss
