Success is all about understanding the fundamentals

Kirby's "Jiujitsu Basic Techniques of the Gentle Art" is all about "basic". So, is Kirby's "Basic Techniques. . . " so elemental that it would not appeal to the more practiced self-defense practitioner? Well, no. But, as the title implies, the information contained in the book is meant more for the less skilled devotee of jiujitsu. Kirby includes information about breakfalls, pressure points, simple (but not worthless) holds, locks, and throws as well as a short explanation of some of the technical principals (the "science" of jiujitsu) that underlie the mechanics of jiujitsu. In addition, Kirby lays out his teaching philosophy and the requirements necessary to advance from one belt degree to another in the Budoshin school of jiujitsu of which Kirby played a large part in establishing. Again, Kirby's book is well-titled and meant more for the beginner who wishes to fill in the gaps with some primary, but still interesting, supplemental information related to the fundamentals of jiujitsu that may not be stressed at the dojo as one focuses on the physical aspects of learning jujitsu as a white belt.
Glad it's available in Kindle

The book is well written, superbly edited, and competently produced. It's a text book or reference manual. Thus, it is best suited for students and teachers of jujutsu. The historical work is amateurish for a text book. The technical work is top notch. It's great to be getting full featured Kindle editions of older books like this!

A book so nice I bought it twice. After i thought I lost the book durring a move, I went and ordered it again. Author dose a great job of breaking down the moves and more importantly illistrates the philosophy of movement! How to get psychics and anatomy on your side. Great for Japanese Ju-jitsu guys as well as anyone that wants to expand there knowledge of a wonderful martial art.

Maybe not as factual as it might be but a good story and very well written. Has been published several times. Original books worth too much to read! Looks at Judokas from a little different light.
