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

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!
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, good insights into setting expectations on how to train and advance.
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.
