9780071448116: Jiu-jitsu Unleashed: A Comprehensive Guide to the World's Hottest Martial Arts Discipline

With martial arts champions such as Ken Shamrock and Tito Ortiz appearing on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno, giving training tips in "Muscle & Fitness" and "Men's Journal", and conducting interviews on Howard Stern's radio show, millions of people are turning to the martial arts for sport, a means of self-defense, and a form of exercise. Many of these newcomers to the martial arts never stepped foot into a martial arts training facility, and have no plans of ever doing so. They want to learn to defend themselves without traveling to a gym or paying steep monthly dues. Some purchase martial arts guidebooks so they can prepare themselves both mentally and physically to enter a dojo a year or two down the road. "Martial Arts Unleashed: Jiu-jitsu" offers readers: a detailed history and evolution of the discipline; a description of the various theories and strategies behind training and competing; a breakdown of the gear and training space needed to get started; a description of warm-up routines, footwork, and stances; detailed instruction accompanied by step-by-step photographs that divulge everything from the basic kicks, punches, and blocks to the most advanced techniques; instruction on how to combine various techniques into sophisticated combinations; sample workouts for all levels of training; weight lifting programs to improve strength; cardiovascular workouts to improve stamina; sample diets to improve overall health; and, resources that show readers where to ply their trade and learn even more. For those desiring to learn the martial arts for self-defense rather than sport, the book features a section on those techniques best suited for practical application. For the more advanced students, this book describes how to blend this particular discipline with other styles, utilize certain techniques to defeat practitioners of other disciplines, and prepare for a variety of competitions.

From the Back Cover:

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
