HASH(0x9065e354) out of 5 stars Just what i needed 9 Jun. 2012
By Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com

This is a very short book but very well written. A lot of the information you will already know if you've been in grappling for a while but it puts things into perspective. This book has gotten me back refocused and on the right track. And for the price it is basically free. I know there are books on grappling with enough content to keep you busy for years but sometimes all you need is something quick and simple to put you back on track. For me this book accomplished that.

HASH(0x90807dec) out of 5 stars Wonderful, Straight to the Point, Read!! 12 Aug. 2012

If you're looking for a BJJ/Grappling experience written more along the lines of a journal about the everyday grind rather than a 'how to grapple instructional' then you can't go wrong with Bakari Akil e-books. I like his writing styles and in fact I own two others of his e-books.

A little background about me I'm in my late 20s, I started taking BJJ training one year ago with no prior martial arts, athletic sport, or physical training background. After 14 months of training I'm officially a two stripe white belt.

I bought Bakari books more out curiosity to learn about another veteran grappler experience with their BJJ grappling journey. In the back of mind I wanted to know if I was on the right path and doing the right things with my BJJ training, and after reading his books its a YES!

I find many of his experiences humorous and relateable but the most that stood out to me at the moment because I am experiencing them right now are "FNG". Most new guys who join BJJ are not the 'average joe' like me with no experience. Many are either ex-wrestlers, ex-football players, current soldiers, or have prior martial art background and I made the mistake of going easy on them not knowing their background and bringing my B/C-game and end up fighting for my life, lol. Taking Bakari advice and not wanting to make the same mistake again and again, I treat all new guest like their already experienced grapplers(but obviously I don't go balls out on them either).

The politcs of BJJ, hitting plateaus, having to train outside the school to stay sharp, I'm seeing it now and I know its not just me and my own experience but its largely a part of the BJJ training culture. Bakari Akil validates my BJJ journey unfolding as it should.

Thanks for writing these books and sharing your thoughts and knowledge Bakari.

HASH(0x90a0a06c) out of 5 stars A nice simple book on the culture of the mat 12 Sept. 2013

Bakari has a fantastic easy prose that helps a grappler understand they have a friend and companion in him. This book is an executive summary on what to expect when you have gone "all in" for jiujitsu.
HASH(0x9071e900) out of 5 stars A quick solid read. 21 Dec. 2013

Read it one sitting. Some good musings on training, improving your game and how to approach your training partners. Felt like a conversation you might have with a training buddy after class.
