Make sure you have this one!,
This review is from: Jiu-jitsu University (Paperback)
I am sure there isn't much i can say about this book that hasn't already been said so I will just give my own experience of it. I love martial arts books so i have quiet a few... In truth this is by far the best one i own. It is so easy and simple to understand, the pictures show you everything so clearly and from different angles (sometimes i just review the pictures without reading it to remember techniques). Saulo Ribeiro is a true MASTER not only of jujitsu but of `teaching' jujitsu as well. His approach to teaching is so clear and methodical something that tends to be uncommon in jujitsu i think. Anyway I brought this book after getting my butt kicked over and over again by a mate in my dojo. I read the whole section for "white belts" in the first week i had it. My next lesson was totally different.... don't get me wrong i wasn't rickson gracie but my friend was getting very annoyed that he couldn't tap me and that was a big step for me :) and its all thanks to this book. It gave me the foundation i needed to grow. It goes up throw the belts so its a book i will always use and love. This book has helped me more than anything ells to learn jujitsu so i could go on about it for ages but im sure it's all been said already. Whatever your level make sure you have this one.
