    Rather than wasting your time bastardizing the helicopter sweep from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: Theory & Techniques with your fellow combat hapkidoka buddies, how about you just find a BJJ school and start training there instead.

    Some styles can give you the basic content of the style and how to teach it to yourself, but a school will always be a more effetive way to learn, especially with such a technical style as BJJ. In terms of lerning the style and technique, a BJJ book and a gay porn magazine wouldn't be too far apart, take the damn class and learn how to fight properly.

    BWA!HA!HA!HA!HA!

    Anyways, how about a book that teaches the history of BJJ? I love history books.

    How old is BJJ? I know a lot of it's roots are from stuff like Greco-Roman wrestling and whatnot, but I dunno if there's enough of it to write a book on.

    "Mastering Jujitsu" by Renzo Gracie and John Danaher should be your first book imo. All the others by Kid Peligro are good. A lot of them are sport oriented though. Royce's book on the top game is good. Rodrigo's on MMA is good too. I wrote a brief review on a thread here somewhere. Try the search fuction.

    Most important thing to remember: Books are no substitute for mat time with a qualified coach.

    81 years since Carlos Sr. opened his first BJJ academy in 1925. Probably even 90+ years if we count the "fetal" period when Maeda arrived to Brazil and began teaching his stuff to Carlos Sr.

    Amazing how time flies, no?
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
