Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Series Reviewed Online

May 15, 2008

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Basic Techniques, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Advanced Techniques, by Fabio Gurgel have been reviewed in Martial Arts Product Reviews (Apr 28, 2008). The review balances praise with critique, saying that in BJJ Basic Techniques, “The chapter on takedowns pleases me because the standing game is a subject that is often overlooked in books about fundamentals.” Followed by, “I’m a little disappointed in the lack of discussion on escapes.”

In summary, the reviewer encourages both students and instructors to purchase the books as a set saying, “If you’re relatively new to the sport and have a qualified instructor, this pair of books will help you understand where you’re going. Also, if you’re a new instructor, the books will give you a good idea of what you should be teaching.”
