Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Martial arts are more popular today than ever, and jiu-jitsu is one of the most practiced martial arts disciplines in the world. It is perfect both for beginners looking to exercise, or serious fighters looking to take part in the booming world of mixed martial arts competition. This book guides the reader through the requirements of winning novice jiu-jitsu belts. Using clear, step-by-step, full-color photography, it covers the history of jiu-jitsu; preparing to train (mentally and physically); strikes, throws, locks, groundwork, and weapon defense; the practical use of self-defense; and putting all of it together for belt grading.

Synopsis:

From the Publisher: Jiu Jitsu for all, white belt to green belt.
