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!

I've been practicing for about a year and a half almost daily, currently a four stripe white belt. Absolutely great information, a lot of important concepts to think about, and a lot of further reading suggestions offered. Would recommend to anyone who is starting jiu jitsu through newly promoted blue belts.
