    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Good ground fighting book/dvd?

    We all know that learning from dvd`s and books is not the way to go. But on rare occasions you do run in some that are worth looking into. Which grappling/bjj/judo... books or DVDs are worth it?

    Carlson Gracie's for experts only, then find a grappling, school.

    Amazon.com: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: For Experts Only (9781931229340): Carlson Gracie, Julio Fernandez: Books

    But if your looking for general instruction go Best Judo.

    Amazon.com: Best Judo (Illustrated Japanese Classics) (9780870117862): Isao Inokuma, Nobuyuki Sato: Books


    If you can only get one book get best Judo, it cover's, Throws, ground work and basics in grappling, break falls, concepts.

    It is the Original Book for Learning how to Crapple (thats why it was made.)

    I was told to get best Judo by my instructor who used it to teach him self crappling in the early 80's when he was a TKD'er

    He later went on to become a Judo Black Belt, and eventually a BJJ Black Belt.

    He is now a professional MMA coach, for various fellows in the WEC.


    Learning out of Books is a good start, it may not be the best, but it intruduces you to a new range of Combat, which then if you like it, you can get formal training in.

    Are you interested in ground fighting for mma, no-gi sub wrestling, or bjj?

    Bas Rutten's Big Book of Combat Vol. 2
    It's the most comprehensive book on no-gi grappling I've ever seen. Sorry, no dangedy dang. Tracking down a copy is pretty difficult. I believe it may have been *cough*leaked*cough*.
    Sumus extra manum tuam.
