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!

This narrator was difficult to listen to.
If I were reading this book with a hi-liter in hand, I wouldn’t need to remove its cap.

It’s stated that this book is more about mindset, and not technique. That’s fine. There weren’t any gems in the first 4 chapters, and I’m not going to be completing the book.

This book may be useful for someone with low self esteem or the inability to plan long-term goals.
