Has anyone read the Jiu-Jitsu Unleashed book that Eddie Bravo did? Since the BJJ workouts/training we get are few and very far between I'm looking for a book with some good solid pictures/illustrations to help us when we're practicing the stuff we learned. Sometimes we get into a situation where we can't quite remember how we were doing the technique in practice and end up spending 20 or 30 minutes playing around with it until we figure it out. I'd like to speed that up and give us more time to work the techniques by having a decent reference around. Would this book make a decent reference to use when trying to refresh yourself about how a technique is done. Most specifically the basic armbars, triangle choke, etc... Just the very basic stuff.
All replies are appreciated.
I know there are some decent gyms in your area. So why are you crappling?
Currently Time and Money concerns. I work full time, I'm sticking it out with TKD for a couple more years for personal reasons. But primarily it's because I'm too broke to sign up for a second gym. Come first of the year I'll be signing up over at Hardcore, but until then I don't see any reason not to keep practicing the stuff I already learned.
If you must, or are very inistant on NOT receiving compitent instruction from a qualified instructor, my opinion would be to look at these (Volume 1 and 2) and don't waste your money on Bravo's stuff when you really have know idea what the basics are.
And once again, even though it is falling on deaf ears, go to a qualified BJJ instructor.
I was going to merge this with the review thread that was done last year, but instead I must punish you.
