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!

Terrible narration, mis-pronounced names, techniques and worst of all - no diagrams... just some narrator reading captions.. When they said it's not a technical manual I figured 'ok great! this will be a great listen in my car commuting for a couple of days'

Wrong... and wish I could get a refund.

Skip the audio version - it's got a few memorable quotes but as a zero stripe, white belt - I found the audio book almost worthless.
