    Really good read with two major flaws.

    The first; it never explains how to pull guard onto molten lava. I feel that after reading the entire book if ever I am in a position where pulling guard onto molten lava is my only option of winning - I will be at a loss.

    The second; everyone in my work office now believes I have lost a portion of my sanity. Every minute or so I'd stifle a chuckle or snicker which could earn me the nickname 'Muttly' in the future. When asked why I was laughing I ignored the books warning about explaining BJJ to people who don't and said 'I'm trying to learn how to avoid molten lava in a street fight.' and was promptly met with equally confused looks and slow backing away.

    Downloading. Sounds like it will be worth every penny.

    If she already trains Krav I could be setting myself up for evisceration.

    I read most of the book in one sitting. Very entertaining. Thanks for this.

    This guy's brutal:
    At the time of your challenge match, schedule a same-day delivery of
    weightloss products, gym memberships, and plastic surgery brochures
    to arrive at your challenger’s home. Address the delivery to his wife, and
    include a card that says, “These gifts will help us fix the problems in our
    relationship.” Sign the card with your challengers name.

    A great book, really funny throughout.

    Thanks for sharing it with us - I'll be sure to pass it on to some of my 'jiu-jiteiro' friends.
