5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous read, 13 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Impossible to put down. As with all Dougie Brimson's books, once you start reading the wretched thing you're stuck until the end. Therefore, I had to wait until my holiday in the sun to devote the time required. Great fun and written as diary entries (think an older version of Adrian Mole for those of a certain age). I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to the sequel (hint, hint)

5.0 out of 5 stars A life saver on the mats, 11 May 2015
As a newcomer to Jiu Jitsu and, it has to be said, a painfully slow learner, The Black Belt Blueprint has been an invaluable aid. In fact it's saved me on the mat numerous times. Clearly written and easy to follow, it explains the main ideas and techniques in such a way that enables you to put them into action immediately, thanks to the combination of text and plenty of diagrams.

In addition, the book gives newcomers an introduction to the origins of the art and pays attention to other very important, albeit often overlooked factors, such as controlling your breathing, how to progress through the belt system, and the whole Jiu Jitsu lifestyle. I have no doubt that this book will continue to be a constant companion as I carry on my Jiu Jitsu journey. Thoroughly recommended.

Fabulous follow up to The Crew. I don't normally like fiction but this had me gripped from start to finish. Loads of twists. A seriously fantastic read.

This review is from: The Crew (Kindle Edition)
Awesome! I'm not usually a fan of fiction but this book is superb - fast paced, full of action, plenty of twists and turns that keep you guessing all the way to the end. I've already bought the follow up, Top Dog, which illustrates how I feel about this book. Well worth a read.

He cuts a controversial figure but he's hugely entertaining. His fight against the gun lobby - which he charts in this book - is very inspiring
