Publisher's Summary

This is a manual designed to get White Belts to competent Blue Belts in as fast a time as possible.

Zen Jiu Jitsu is more a rendition of concepts than techniques. This is the simplest and easiest way to break down and simplify the many and varied ideas, philosophies and combinations in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu arsenal. For both competition jiu jitsu and self defense jiu jitsu most white belts need to fully understand the concepts, but it can be VERY confusing!

Here is a short list of a few of the questions students ask, that are covered in depth:

  • What is the guard and how do we utilize it best?
  • What options do we have from guard?
  • Why is posture and distance important?
  • The mount is a powerful position but how do I get there?
  • ... And when I do get there, how do I stay there?

This is a great manual for anyone just starting Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Traditional Jiu Jitsu, MMA and Grappling.

    "Great read Narrator a little annoying"

    The Info in this book is great. The
    narrator sounds too dry and mispronounces a lot of BJJ terms and names like Rickson Gracie & De La Riva.

    No shade thrown though. Great read!

    "Wow!!!"

    So I picked up this, the second book in the series, first.
    About halfway through... I grabbed the first one as well!
    I have been practicing martial arts for over 25 years & teaching for over 16 years. I recently started BJJ & I learned more from this book than six months in class!!!
    If you want to improve your game...
    GET. THIS. SERIES!!!

    "Worth the read"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    worth the read, good insights into setting expectations on how to train and advance.


    Any additional comments?

    I found that as a beginner, I was sometimes lost in the terms, and didn't understand specific Jiu Jitsu moves and terms being used. But overall, it was a good listen. I may listen again in 4-6 months.
