One of the easiest things in the world to do is to start training in BJJ as a beginner

BJJ. Of all students that begin training in BJJ as no-stripe white belt, less than ...

If you don't know the answers to these questions... You need the BJJ Notebook! - What did you learn last week? - Can you remember that awesome class from last month? - How many times did you win or lose during the past 12 months? - What submissions caused you to lose more often than others? - Can you list all techniques that you learned in the last seminar? - How many points did you score in your last tournament? - What does your instructor recommend that you focus on? - What do you need to improve TODAY? "This is the first non-instructional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu book ever published and it is the most important to have because it's the only one about YOU." Helio Gracie, one of the founding fathers of Jiu-Jitsu, said that "BJJ is for everyone." People will try and quit BJJ for a variety of reasons beyond a BJJ school's control. However, no one should quit BJJ because they didn't have every opportunity to succeed. There is no "one-size-fits-all" BJJ. Every student will receive and internalize the lessons of BJJ in a unique way and create their own personalized version of BJJ. This is one of the beautiful aspects of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Each student has the opportunity to access the infinite variety and richness of BJJ and create their own work of art that becomes part of their person. There are precious few things in life that can claim to provide such a wholesome and rewarding benefit. A BJJ notebook serves the practical purpose of a training log helping to remember all of the different moves that were taught over previous weeks, months and years. In BJJ, one can go years without seeing the same move taught twice. If a move is taught by an instructor and then quickly forgotten, how is that different from never having learned it in the first place? This BJJ notebook is the first BJJ JOURNAL, which was designed to make the most out of the beginning steps in what is hopefully a long and fruitful BJJ journey. Encouraging the use of the BJJ notebook is one of the ways a BJJ school can make the BJJ journey more accessible to those willing to put in the effort. It can serve as a basis to promote discussion and interaction among students about issues they are facing and allow students to learn from each other. The martial arts journey will still take enormous work and dedication. However, the BJJ notebook should at least provide a mechanism to help focus the student's effort to get the most of the BJJ experience.

In retrospect, all martial arts are mixed, but MMA has taken on a mystique of its own in the newest wave of combative experimentation. This book presents an encompassing perspective of this phenomenon in eight chapters written by experts in the field. In their individual chapters they provide analyses of the techniques utilized during many of the leading competitive events, mainly the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC), and give practical “how to” instruction. This book pulls together some of the best writings published in the Journal of Asian Martial Arts regarding modern mixed martial arts. Daniele Bolelli uses a scholarly approach to produce two excellent chapters, as does Rhadi Ferguson with his two chapters. Bolelli provides a superb overview by analyzing 176 matches that took place between 1993 and 1999 under the UFC umbrella. He also highlights the different ways in which grappling techniques are currently used in mixed martial arts competition. While utilizing a comprehensive approach, Dr. Ferguson zeros in on armbar and chokehold submissions to conclude just how often these were utilized in 1,263 UFC bouts. His works here can assist mixed martial arts professionals with analytical information to help them in training practices and winning strategies. What do the analyses show? Well, one thing is that all the techniques used are found in many old martial traditions. Some techniques are extremely old. Certainly cavemen used chokes. Many are from the previous millennium, as hinted by the numerous Japanese terms used since the samurai sipped sake. Fundamental techniques are discussed by Andew Zerling and Steve Scott. Four other chapters provide insightful text and the photographic detail to present the theory and practice of the major techniques utilized by mixed martial artists: chokes, armlocks, and leg locks. Zerling offers three chapters with the precious help of his teacher, Renzo Gracie. Scott’s chapter is a highly detailed piece on the cross-body armlock, giving four primary applications all will appreciate as vital to MMA practice. The eight chapters are filled with analytical text helpful for the pursuit of combat expertise. There is enough here to find of great value. But there is more. In the chapters you’ll also find perspective and insight that illuminate what is occurring in the evolution of MMA competition. Read closely and you’ll see that—beneath the hype—changing competitive rules and dollar amounts play a role in the outcome of championship belts and competitive crowns. We need to factor these aspects into our quest to understand the rich variety of martial traditions.

Grappling 101

In the beginning, grappling will be hard. You will be at the bottom of the social
hierarchy, you will tap to others more so than tap others and it will all be uphill

This is the "Bully Proof" for beginning grapplers. It’ll help you develop a force field to help shield you from making newbie mistakes. The advice in Grappling 101 is information that people will not share with you during instruction or drill, but will tell you at the most inopportune moments. They are pointers that everyone should give you on day one, but end up as sporadic pieces of advice; usually shouted out while someone is handing your ass to you. This is not a handbook that shows you step-by-step sequences that will help you wreak havoc in your gym or on the competition mat. Instead, it is grappling theory. It was written with the intention of keeping you from becoming a victim. Theoretically, if you use the advice in this book it will save you a lot of grief and help you to avoid a lot of needless tapping. The information in Grappling 101 will take months and in some cases years away from time that would normally be spent as a newbie, then as a rookie. It will keep you from making what someone, who is hard on themselves, would describe as stupid or silly mistakes. ***Attention: This book is for beginners. Read this book before you begin grappling! That said; if you have already begun to study submission wrestling then you’ve probably learned what’s in this book the hard way. Yet, it is always good to review the basics, so Grappling 101 can be read by all.

There is nothing in the world like grappling! It is primal and in its very essence it is what life is all about; the chase, fun, struggle and survival. It teaches you how to cope with trying situations; teaches you to always search for options and that you can triumph even when the odds are against you. This combat art puts you on the Quixotic hunt for the real you, the champ lurking inside. It wants you to find that inner beast that allows you to rip off your shirt, look your opponent in the eye and utter those immortal fighting words made famous by Kimbo Slice, “Run it!” And that is the spirit, in which this book was written. "Tapmonster" was written for that grappler who is looking for an extra edge and alternative approaches to grappling. In my decade of grappling, I have used many ideas to increase my skills. And since my inspiration has come from many sources, I did not hesitate to include ideas from academic research, other sports and from the ordinary man on the street in this book. I also know that the best way to learn is from those who do it the best. That is why Tapmonster is also filled with ideas from the champions of our sport. Tapmonster covers: -How to deal with FNGs -The Pump Fake -The Hands Off Approach -Snatching and Tripping -Ambidextrous Thinking -Shaquille O'Neal and Grappling -The Importance of Gimmicks -Belt Chasing -Grappling Finance -How the movie Money Ball can help your grappling -ADCC and BJJ World Champ, Robert Drysdale's key to training -What Felipe Costa (BJJ World Champion) says about getting good -How to use the flipped classroom in the grappling environment -How does Tito Ortiz’s thoughts on MMA relate to grappling? -The Power of Love and Hate in Grappling -What can Arnold Schwarzenegger do for your grappling game? -What’s the secret behind BJJ World Champ, JT Torres’s smile? -What made Eddie Bravo so confident that he would whisper, “Are you ready?” into an opponent’s ear? And much more, so much more! -------- Reader Review BUY THIS BOOK!! I don’t ordinarily write reviews, but I am notorious for reading and using reviews to make purchases. This will be my second review ever. That alone should tell you that this book was able to motivate me to actually write this! Wherever you are at in your grappling game, BUY THIS BOOK! I am currently preparing for my first BJJ tourney, had a horrible class and could not stop thinking about all I had done wrong earlier on the mats. After about 3 hours of tossing and turning I thought maybe I’ll find a book of some kind, some nugget of wisdom that will rescue “whatever” BJJ game I had left. I had purchased one of this author’s other books and this one seemed somewhat new. While I understand that this review seems contrived in that this book ended up being just what I needed, but it truly was. I don’t know if it will rescue my game, but it assuredly got me motivated to get back to work on it!! Whatever level in your grappling journey, this book will help you. It will more specifically tell you things that no one ordinarily talks about, on or off the mats. It’s a quick read, but the true take away is that you’re not alone in the feelings, the blood, sweat and tears and just plain difficulty that is the grappling arts! You will not be disappointed with this purchase! And though I haven’t written reviews yet, I have also purchased "20 ways to improve your Grappling," and "Grappling for Newbies," both by this author, both highly, highly recommended! Hope this review helps! Walt -- Tapmonster is funny, thought provoking, entertaining and inspiring.

Beginning Arnis Stick Fighting

From Brazilian Jiu Jitsu I drew ground fighting techniques and from Kali I drew stick and knife fighting techniques. This book was designed to introduce students to the beginning techniques of Arnis (Kali - Escrima).

"Beginning Arnis (Stick Fighting) Vol 1 was made as a simple guide to help students learn the Filipino martial art of Arnis (also called "Escrima" and "Kali"). In 1985 I opened my first school in Old Lyme, CT and in 1986 I went full time and opened my second school in New London, CT. I was a member of a martial arts Association and felt the knife techniques were "dangerous." So I decided to study Arnis. At the time Remi Presas was making the rounds and spreading FMA (Filipino Martial Arts). Somewhere around 1987 I took a clinic with Remi Presas. Shortly after this clinic Greg Alland walked into my school. At first I thought he came in to ask about lessons but it soon became apparent he was there to teach me. He said he practiced Arnis and I said "I just took a clinic with Remi Presas." He asked me to show him what I knew (Which I admitted was not much at all) and then Greg made the sticks hum! He moved the sticks like the propellor of a helicopter. He asked about my knife defenses and soon he was "buttering" me with the knife like a kid makes a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It was ugly -BUT I found a teacher (Well - he found me!) I introduced Greg Alland to Kwan Jhang Nim Charles Ferraro and this began our long study of Arnis with Greg Alland. In 1999 I relocated my family from New London, CT. to Fayetteville, NC. My Pastor (Michael Pacella) joined the Army and was stationed at Ft Bragg and suggested I move to Fayetteville and "teach the Green Berets." In the Holy Bible we see when Sarah heard she was going to bear a child in her old age she laughed in her heart and when Pastor Pacella said I should teach the US Special Forces I laughed in my heart too! But, as if it were prophesy - sure enough and within 6 months I was teaching the US Special Forces. In June 2001 I receive my first contract from 2/3 SFG (A) and was "Officially Contracted" to teach the US Special Forces "FIGHT CUT Combatives" (Fully Integrated Grappling and Hitting Techniques - Close Up Techniques). To create FIGHT CUT I volunteered one year of working with 2/3 SFG (A) to develop and refine a Combatives Course which would teach the skills needed for Combatives in a simple, direct, and effective manner. FIGHT CUT was selected and contracted and was proudly being taught to the US Special Forces and the 82nd ABN DIV. From Tang Soo Do I drew kicks, strikes, and blocks. From Japanese Ju Jitsu I drew joint locks, sweeps, throws, chokes, and arm bars. From Brazilian Jiu Jitsu I drew ground fighting techniques and from Kali I drew stick and knife fighting techniques. This book was designed to introduce students to the beginning techniques of Arnis (Kali - Escrima). Students can train and level (Rank) in Arnis.

Are you or a friend feeling overwhelmed without any guidance on what to focus on as a white belt? Feeling a bit lost? These are the Five Rules that EVERY White Belt MUST know. This book establishes the mental framework that will provide a solid foundation for any white belt. The ideas provided will provide a blue print which will immediately ease the mind of a white belt, make training more enjoyable, and allow the new-comer the ability to fully immerse themselves into BJJ without all of the distractions of beginning something new. BJJ is tough. Especially for the white belt. Trying to remember submissions, sweeps, arm bars, wrist locks, leg locks while someone is trying to do those EXACT same moves on you at the same time? Sound familiar? Feeling overwhelmed? Looking for that one missing piece to allow you to progress faster and with greater efficiency? That's expected. The purpose of this book is to provide a solid foundation on what a white-belt should be focusing on. Less things to worry about can be a beautiful thing when there's someone trying to arm bar you. If you've been looking for a book that gives a clear, concise look at the ideal mindset of a white-belt for BJJ then look no further. 5 Rules For White Belts has been written with you and ONLY you in mind. This is not a book about techniques or rear naked chokes. There are plenty of books for that. This is about the ideal mindset, concepts, and outlook to approaching BJJ to ensure a successful and enjoyable BJJ career.THE RULES:1 Always Remember You're A Work In Progress2 Narrow Your Immediate Focus3 Learn To Learn4 Be Grateful For Your Team Mates5 BJJ Is The Vehicle For Something MoreEach rule is expanded into a concept that can be immediately applied to improve your BJJ mindset. The concepts are easily understood, easily applied, yet incredibly important and meaningful. What you will get out of this book:-Five rules that will absolutely benefit every white belt-Establish an organized set of ideas to build and rely upon-Rid yourself of frustrations, confusions and limitations in BJJ-Build a SOLID mental foundation-Ease your mind-Make training more enjoyable-Mindset of gratitude for teammates and others-Finally focus on what needs to be focused on-Learn to learn efficiently-Optimize time on and off the mat-Clear, concise mindset for the white belt-Easily applied concepts-An approach that will benefit your BJJ and (more importantly) your life-AND SO MUCH MORE Matakas has focused on speaking with white belts and has understood their struggles, frustrations and limitations. In addition to his own experiences while obtaining a black belt under World Champion Ricardo Almeida, Matakas has harnessed the feelings of the white belt into an easy to read, insightful, and helpful set of rules and thoughts which will instantly improve your BJJ mindset and experience. Chris has taken the time to break down the 5 MOST Important Rules that EVERY White Belt should internalize and utilize. And you should too.This is an absolute MUST READ for any beginner of BJJ or anyone looking for new perspectives or approaches to learning or teaching white belts in BJJ. To be honest, this was written for the white belts, but MANY of the ideas presented in this book would be helpful to anyone involved in BJJ or martial arts. All of that sounds great right? You know what's even better? The principals provided in this book will inevitably spill over into everyday life. Matakas didn't reinvent the wheel with the concepts in this book. He will simply make you realize you're a part of a wheel. It may be a rigid, square "wheel" in the beginning. At best. But, this "wheel" will move with great effort if applied. The goal is to chip away at the corners to make this a smooth-running machine. Chris believes that BJJ is the vehicle, not the road. Begin and continue your BJJ journey with Matakas. This is where the road. Let's roll!
