Publisher Comments:

Learn the techniques of a jiu-jitsu legend that will make your competition beg for mercy

"We're very lucky to have a guy like Eddie in the world of martial arts and even luckier that he's willing to teach what he knows. I truly believe that when all is said and done this book will become one of the most important books ever written on martial arts."

--Joe Rogan, martial artist and host of NBC's "Fear Factor"

In Jiu-Jitsu Unleashed, world-renowned martial artist Eddie Bravo reveals the moves that he used to defeat legendary Brazilian fighter Royler Gracie and that have made him one of the most feared competitors in the martial arts. A complete system that includes original ground fighting and submission techniques that can quickly subdue even the most vicious opponents--both in the ring and on the street--Bravo's "no-gi" style represents an evolutionary leap forward in the ancient Japanese art of jiu-jitsu.

Whether you're a complete beginner looking for practical self-defense techniques or a competitive martial artist who wants to incorporate Bravo's killer techniques into your fighting strategy, Jiu-Jitsu Unleashed is for you. With the help of nearly 300 superb, step-by-step photographs, featuring "Fear Factor" host Joe Rogan, Bravo shares with you his winning pointers on:

  • Basic and advanced techniques from the Half Guard, Rubber Guard, mount, and back positions, including the author's signature move, "The Twister."
  • How to combine techniques into unstoppable combinations
  • Sophisticated training and competing theories and strategies

Synopsis:

This introduction to jiu-jitsu from one of its most dominant stars features detailed instruction on stance, kicks, punches, takedowns, and submissions Step-by-step photos of basic and advanced moves modeled by "Fear Factor" host Joe Rogan.

This is probably one of the best books out there about Jiu-Jitsu. I use this book everyday while training. The book covers techniques from several differant positions and focuses on Bravo's amazing rubber guard. This book is worth any amount of money to the aspiring martial artist or MMA competitor.
