Mastering Jujitsu by Renzo Gracie and John Danaher is a great read. Has some techniques and drills I like.

Eddie Bravos unleashed is good but wouldnt recommend for a complete novice

Liking has nothing to do with taking advice from a person. I would take advice from my enemy if it would help me win a battle one day.

I agree with both of you on this i dont like Eddie either but he has got some good moves, if you learn something it doesnt matter were you picked it up from but what you do with it

true, but if you don't like a person you'll have a much harder time accepting advice from the person

Correct, but if you see that it works time after time, meaning that it's Tried and True, how can you not accept it? I may be prideful at times, but I also know when I should swallow my pride.

GoW, I agree with you. Sometimes you gotta swollow the pride and ask for help.


NitZR, haven't read that. What's it about? Other than GJJ? Basic GJJ?

Grand Master Helio Gracie addresses different aspects of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu method. It's a simple break down of how to systematically progress and technically improve your mat game regardless of your background or grappling ability.

Really, I find most of the JKD books very poorly writen and hard to follow.
