informative, easy to read and not exactly breaking the bank. I can't think of any reason why someone wouldn't buy this book....

As suggested this is a excellent read for beginners who have perhaps attended one or two classes and feel they could do with a little extra information or guidance to help them out on the mats for those first few awkward weeks and rolls.

This isn't a book filled with secret training techniques or ancient words of wisdom that will make you better overnight. Its simply a few pages laying out the fundamentals of grappling and Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ).

Everyone remembers that feeling when they first started out, that if they just had that little extra knowledge of what was going on, they could do a bit more on the mat. Well then, this book is that knowledge....

One on one time with a coach learning the "ropes" might not be practical or cheap!!, so this is a great alternative that can give you what you need without the hassle and at your own leisure.

This books isn't just for beginners also but for the coaches looking to better understand what to teach someone day one on the mats.

It can be hard going from teaching 15-20 regular students the technique of that week to given the BJJ newbie in the gym something to do that will benefit him, outside of being a grappling dummy for the day. So using this book will give more than enough material for you to take from and structure an easy 20 minute "class plan" for the new man on the mat.

I'm a blue belt in BJJ getting back from some time off. I found this book too short and too vague. It is not possible to explain basic grappling without images, to me this book is lazy and not worth buying.

I'm a newbie in the world of BJJ and this book has helped me enormously over the last few months. Tells you all the things that your new training colleagues might not tell you immediately

I read this book after being about 3 weeks in as a bjj student. Some of the tips were golden in preventing me from being mauled by more experienced guys when I spar with them. It's also a short and quick read with good writing and metaphors.

HASH(0x90140a80) out of 5 stars Great Primer 27 July 2015

Excellent theory based book for any white belt or neophyte grappler. This book will save you 6 months of learning basic principles the hard way - things that often aren't covered in class. Short, sweet, and right to the point.

If you are a beginner this book is very helpful. I read it when I was in my second month of training BJJ and I swear I had my best class the next time I made it to the gym. I was very pleased with the books insight.

I'm a beginner in bjj and an ex wrestler. This book helped me with some great basics I didn't think about with being a wrestler
