Right now i have no access to quality training in BJJ, and probably won't have such access for quite a while. Wrestling season is over and i want to learn to grapple, at least the basics of BJJ. I take CKD and we do grapple OCCASIONALLY and i'm not completely clueless about grappling, but i'm certainly a newb and want to learn.
So, does anyone know of any good instructional books or dvds out there that might help? I would never have spent money on one until i heard Evan Tanner taught himself to grapple (in the beginning anyways) by using that kind of thing. If it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me.
BTW i have BJJ For experts only by carlson gracie... yes i know i'm not an expert but i understand most of what its talking about, and the techniques make sense to me, but i know that theres always little intricacies and such that you don't get from a book like that, so im looking for a good dvd or book on BJJ basics.
PS> HOW DO ARMBAR?
Any Judo in your area? It will be a good substitute until you can find some BJJ.
ughhh it said " all types of physical training" damn the devil.
well theres actually MMA in my area, which i'd love to do, but my grandparents aren't big on letting me do it...
they dont want me to leave my karate school and they, knowing nothing about MA, simply don't see the point. so until i can convince them to let me go there, i'm looking for something to hold me over.
Tell them it's more realistic. Plus, you heard from some kids at school that the Karate Dojo is run by Communists.
moderatiOWNED... i suck at posting
but thanks that eddie bravo book looks great.
Yep Eddie Bravo's book is great, also Submission Grappling by Royler is good too.
