Innovative Jiujitsu Techniques

By Joseph M Burtner - December 25, 2005

Eddie Bravo has made waves in the Brazilian Jiujitsu community by advocating gi-less training, developing an unconventional guard game, and tapping out Renzo Gracie in the prestigious ADCC tournament. He shares some of his unique system in this book.

The first part is an introduction (almost autobiographical) in which Eddie talks about how he developed his signiature system (mostly 'cause he was a poor student of the basics) as well as why he favors non-gi training. He makes a compelling argument that goes against some of the established BJJ teachers by insisting that in order to get better at non-gi grappling, one must practice grappling without a gi (as opposed to the standard party line, which is "to get good without a gi, you must practice WITH a gi").

His first technique chapter is on the half-guard, and he emphasises various sweeps, combinations of sweeps, and submissions, which differs from the standard strategy of trying to attain full guard. This... read more

I love this book!

By A. Popa "the_hairless_wonder" - July 25, 2006

First off I want to give a few warnings. This book is No-gi submission wrestling all the way. If you are a hardcore Gi-wearin Jiu Jitsu dude then you probably will not like this book and I highly recommend The Guard/Passing the Guard (both available from Amazon). What all these books have in common is that they take a very in-depth look at a limited number of positions and situations. , no take downs, no clinch moves, etc. Which brings me to another warning, this book is not a general jiu jitsu manual. If you want basics and an overall introduction to all the moves there are tons of books like that out there. I recommend Mastering Jiu Jitsu, No Holds Barred Fighting, and/or Submission Wrestling . This last one is just chuck full of moves with absolutely NO FILLER. The other two are good too but have more general info about training, equipment, etc. OK, back to the review. I also must warn that if you are not very flexible and don't plan on working to become flexible then... read more

Great book for the offensive game

By simkn - April 22, 2006

Eddie Bravo's approach to jiu-jitsu is entirely novel, and something that anyone could benefit from incorporating into his or her own jiu-jitsu game. That being said, I would say that this book isn't really geared toward the beginner. Eddie doesn't go over the basics of jiu-jitsu. Rather, he assumes you know the basics and are looking to add something new to your game. Furthermore, being in the 150 pound weightclass himself, Eddie has a lot of good advice for those practitioners that are in the lightweight category. The book is filled with large, black and white pictures. Too often jiu-jitsu books are filled with small pictures in which you cannot see the details of the moves. In "Jiu-jitsu Unleashed", although black and white, nearly every picture is at least a half-page in size, and many are a full page! In what follows, I'll give a "play-by-play" of the major sections of the book.

In the introduction, Eddie tells his personal jiu-jitsu story, from high school... read more
