I found myself just putting as much force as I could to counter him, as I now no he was only doing to me no skill just power and weight. After I read this I started to put the tips in this book to use and found after a short time slowly I would his strength to my own strengths , he would push I would transition to back before he could see what I have done.
I now look forward to rolling with him (although I don't think he feels the same).
I would like to thank BJJ video vault and Dan Faggella for making this book so easy to under stand as I am a white belt.
I would defiantly recommend this book as a must read for all BJJ levels who just simply want to improve there overall jujitsu experience, ability and understand meant of the whole aspect of jujitsu.
The book is extremely easy to follow along with step by step pictures to go allow with with the detailed description of what you should be doing in the situation encountered , along with defense and offense move you can do to become your own giant killer.
Tiny price to pay for glory.

The techniques discussed by Dan (with great step by step picture guides) are also highly specific for use by a smaller grappler. Through what is obviously a wealth of experience, the author has isolated and demonstrated a very select range of moves that rely very little on strength, size or weight. This is a great help to someone who is relatively new to jiu jitsu as it saves one from the daunting and somewhat impossible task of having to sift through all the available literature and figuring out what works.
In summary, this is a great book for someone who is relatively new to brasilian jiu jitsu or a more experienced grappler who is looking to broaden their understanding of some of the key principles involved within various areas of the sport.
It is short, concise and wastes very little of one's time. Overall an excellent read - well worth the incredibly affordable price!

I've always known that I'm probably always going to be smaller and weaker than my opponent and that thought in itself can be a little discouraging. Especially when you're always fighting, trying to survive, from the bottom. One of the best helps for me was the mindset. The mindset that I don't have to be stuck on the bottom-that I need to be the one attacking, not defending. For some, I'm sure that wasn't the best help, but for me it was. I'm smaller, but that means I'm built for speed. I understand better that I need to first of all, attack, and don't stop attacking. Because as long as my opponent is defending, he/she isn't attacking!! As with anything, you make mistakes. The techniques shown in this book will help me recover from many of those mistakes a whole lot quicker now!! It was kind of like getting a private from Dan Fagella, but for SO much less! I am anxious to share some of what I've learned from this book with a few of the ladies at my gym who are struggling as I was. For once, since I began my journey into the BJJ world, I now feel empowered, and that mindset alone, will make a huge difference in each of my training sessions! Throw in the awesome technique he shared and, BIG guys, WATCH OUT! I'm comin' for ya!!
The book is broken down into easy follow sections. Each of these sections have written descriptions and photos of the instructional techniques. While I typically benefit from a more visual(video) technique, the book does a good job of breaking the technique down. The book not only goes over technique but, the necessary mentality to have while facing a larger opponent. I personally experienced this mentality recently while rolling with a much smaller blue belt. He moved very fast and without hesitation, putting me in a bad spot immediately.
Keep in mind that this book is less than $10 so, it would not be fair to compare it to some of the larger more expensive books out there. You do get more than your money's worth for the instruction that Dan Faggella provides in this book. For those not familiar with Dan, pull up some of his videos and just watch.
