If you want a book that shows the basic non flowery moves then this is ok but it is not a good encyclopedia for someone learning the syllabus.
I have both the cards and the book format. The book is great if you are a training nut like me and want to read up on different techniques when on the train, flying or even on the loo!!! I read the book when I am any place other than training on the tatami!
The cards are fanstastic for use whilst training as you can select the technique you want to practice and have the card on the floor beside you. They are 'wipe-clean' so if you are sweaty they will not get damaged. You don't have to worry about the book closing on you. All in all, a great idea!!!
The techniques themselves are amazing, effective and easy to follow, with both pictures and written descriptions. Kevin Pell also writes an excellent and no-nonsense introduction, offering information and practical advice on what you need to start training, the spirit of Martial Arts and what to look for in a club so you don't get ripped off. In my opinion, this is a bargain buy for the volume of quality information. A 'must have' for anyone wanting to know any self-defence/Ju-Jitsu techniques. I hope this author writes some more soon!!!

This book is simple, clear, yet comprehensive, with illustrations throughout showing the stages of each move. It covers throws, blocks, strikes, grappling, holds and defense against weapons. I would give it 6 stars if I could. A first rate introduction to the Japanese fighting art of Ju-Jitsu.
Highly recommended, even for those who do not do JJ as a martial art, as it will people confidence in how to deal with any situation that may arise

this book was mostly about using jiu-jitsu to aid self defence, instead of the use of jiu jitsu in sport and competition. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Mr. Samuel D. Williamson
There is a lot of fine print to read here, but the photos are very small and underexposed, not a very good training manual and expensive for what it is, the photos should be reshot... Read morePublished 21 months ago by Ian Hatcher
Bought this for my daughters who have to wander around in the violent UK. Having studied Ju Jitsu for many years my main criticism is the throws mentioned. Read morePublished on 27 Mar. 2014 by Chessmachine
