As an MMA instructor, I have quite an extensive library of books on the subject. Most of them specialise in a particular area eg wrestling or striking. This book gives an excellent overview in all areas of the game and is ideally suited to a beginner wanting a broad knowledge of MMA.

It covers the history of combat sports and MMA (a fascinating area to me) and then covers the essential tactics and skills from all aspects of the modern game seen in cagefighting the world over.

It goes into depth on the bread and butter techniques with nice photos and detailed text on how to get them to work.

The style of writing is nice and keeps the interest of the reader as if having a live instructor and is easy to understand.

A great little book that I recommend to all of my students.

Could do with a few more step-by-step pictures (especially in the submissions section). But other than that it is a great read for a beginner who wants to be quick on the uptake when starting out in an MMA gym.

Does help put into context why you do certain drills and sparring in isolation and why you would look to mix styles in sparring too (striker versus grappler - and then swap rolls).

It also emphasises the importance of not injurring your training partners, which I think a lot of martial artists seem to forget - that your team in order to prepare.

Some people have complained that the pics are in black and white, but I dont think colour would add too much to the experience other than price.

It could maybe have a few more drills in there too, but I think it is attempting to be a broad introduction to MMA rather than focusing soley on one aspect such as fitness or tactics for example. It does get you thinking about how you can focus your drills etc to get better at one aspect of fighting before going the whole hog.

A lot of this I already knew, but I did still find it helpful and would certainly recommend to anyone who is new to stepping in an MMA gym.

Superb book written by a great team including MMA coach Mickey Dimic, UFC Champion Carlos Newton, BJJ whiz Mark Bocek and Britain's kickboxing/MMA star Gary Turner. This book is unique in that it actually explains WHY and HOW everything works. Excellent theory and practice book! Adds a lot of depth to your MMA! A big help in training!

When I ordered this book, I didn't know what I was going to get, but it looked good: written by a combination of UFC champions, amateur MMA champions and grappling and striking specialists in pro MMA, some in UFC others in other leagues. However, besides Carlos Newton, I wasn't too familiar with who the others were, but this is probably more due to my interest in MMA being more in participating than in keeping stats on all the fighters. But, WOW, the book does impress! It takes the mystery and confusion out of the sport by starting with the building block techniques like strikes, takedowns, pins, guard work and subs, and then shows how you link them together, and then how to strategize and train to maximize your chances against an opponent. What I really like is how, unlike it seems every other book out there, they prioritize moves, showing which ones are most common and effective, and not just throwing out an unorganized mess of moves that the player has to experiment with to see what he finds better than what. One other thing I really like is that the book is written for amateur players too. There are more restrictions on amateur events, and this book helps you to navigate through them. The drills in the book are very useful and even fun, and opened my eyes to more efficient ways of training. Many of them are situational based, and the book describes the most "go for" moves from each, for both attacker and defender, and how to do them.

This is a great book. It far easier to read than I first thought, although I'm only part of the way through it so far.

Great addition to my collection and glad I bought it (cheaper than I thought). Will write a further review after finishing it!
