Jiu Jitsu Combat Tricks
Jiu-Jitsu is a style of combat that emerges from feudal Japan and has developed into various forms of other popular styles, such as Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In its original form, which developed in Japan during the 1500s, it was developed as a way to combat fighting techniques from China, which focused on striking. In contrast, Jiu-Jitsu was developed as a way to immobilize adversaries and throw items as a defense. Grappling skills were central to the fighting style, which was developed to handle close range contact. Jiu-Jitsu techniques proved to be valuable and have since enjoyed many new developments in the style to hone it to the user's needs and interests. For example, during the 1700s a new form emerged, Edo Jiu-Jitsu, which focused on non-armored combatants in every day situations, rather than wartime usage. In Jiu-Jitsu Combact Tricks, author H. Irving Hancock has selected many of these close-range defensive techniques, with photographs to shed light on how to utilize them. This work, being a reprint of a historical, turn of the century volume, helps to illustrate sporting interests and styles of the era as well.
"Karel is one of my favourite training partners. The insights in his book are excellent to learn many techniques for advanced martial artists."- Georges St. Pierre, 12 time UFC World Champion, one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time & BJJ Black Belt The concept of "fighting" is at the heart of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We study the art to learn how to win fights. We even refer to matches in our sport competitions as "fights". The methods of learning the art are rugged, and at best transform our bodies into fighting machines.But applying this fight mindset to everyday training can cause us to use methods that destroy training longevity, and ultimately rob us of the ability to practice the art we love. What good is learning to fight like a badass if your body is too broken to put up a fight?Renzo Gracie Black Belt, Karel "Silver Fox" Pravec wants to share his insights as a 23+ year practitioner of, and competitor in the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In his first book, Fluid BJJ, Professor Pravec provides concepts, transitions, and drilling sequences that are geared towards practicing the combat art in a way that allows us to exhibit greater levels of mastery and ability as we age. And to ultimately return to the core essence of BJJ: The application and triumph of human intelligence to the problem of fighting.Endorsed by martial arts legends:- Master Renzo Gracie, Grandson of BJJ Founder and Author of Mastering Jiu-Jitsu- Matt Serra, former UFC World Champion & Decorated BJJ Black Belt- Georges St. Pierre, 12-time UFC World Champion- Firas Zahabi, Renowned MMA Coach
A coming of age debut novel from The Boondock Saints and Young Indiana Jones actor Sean Patrick Flanery. A young Mickey navigates through the dense Texas humidity of the 70s and out onto the porch every single time his Granddaddy calls him, where he's presented with the heirloom recipe for life, love, and manhood. But all the logic and insight in the world cannot prepare him to operate correctly in the presence of a wonderfully beautiful little girl who moves in just behind his rear fence. How will this magical moment divide Mickey's life into a "before and after" and permanently change his motion and direct it down the unpaved road to which only a lucky few are granted access?
There is nothing in the world like grappling! It is primal and in its very essence it is what life is all about; the chase, fun, struggle and survival. It teaches you how to cope with trying situations; teaches you to always search for options and that you can triumph even when the odds are against you. This combat art puts you on the Quixotic hunt for the real you, the champ lurking inside. It wants you to find that inner beast that allows you to rip off your shirt, look your opponent in the eye and utter those immortal fighting words made famous by Kimbo Slice, “Run it!” And that is the spirit, in which this book was written. "Tapmonster" was written for that grappler who is looking for an extra edge and alternative approaches to grappling. In my decade of grappling, I have used many ideas to increase my skills. And since my inspiration has come from many sources, I did not hesitate to include ideas from academic research, other sports and from the ordinary man on the street in this book. I also know that the best way to learn is from those who do it the best. That is why Tapmonster is also filled with ideas from the champions of our sport. Tapmonster covers: -How to deal with FNGs -The Pump Fake -The Hands Off Approach -Snatching and Tripping -Ambidextrous Thinking -Shaquille O'Neal and Grappling -The Importance of Gimmicks -Belt Chasing -Grappling Finance -How the movie Money Ball can help your grappling -ADCC and BJJ World Champ, Robert Drysdale's key to training -What Felipe Costa (BJJ World Champion) says about getting good -How to use the flipped classroom in the grappling environment -How does Tito Ortiz’s thoughts on MMA relate to grappling? -The Power of Love and Hate in Grappling -What can Arnold Schwarzenegger do for your grappling game? -What’s the secret behind BJJ World Champ, JT Torres’s smile? -What made Eddie Bravo so confident that he would whisper, “Are you ready?” into an opponent’s ear? And much more, so much more! -------- Reader Review BUY THIS BOOK!! I don’t ordinarily write reviews, but I am notorious for reading and using reviews to make purchases. This will be my second review ever. That alone should tell you that this book was able to motivate me to actually write this! Wherever you are at in your grappling game, BUY THIS BOOK! I am currently preparing for my first BJJ tourney, had a horrible class and could not stop thinking about all I had done wrong earlier on the mats. After about 3 hours of tossing and turning I thought maybe I’ll find a book of some kind, some nugget of wisdom that will rescue “whatever” BJJ game I had left. I had purchased one of this author’s other books and this one seemed somewhat new. While I understand that this review seems contrived in that this book ended up being just what I needed, but it truly was. I don’t know if it will rescue my game, but it assuredly got me motivated to get back to work on it!! Whatever level in your grappling journey, this book will help you. It will more specifically tell you things that no one ordinarily talks about, on or off the mats. It’s a quick read, but the true take away is that you’re not alone in the feelings, the blood, sweat and tears and just plain difficulty that is the grappling arts! You will not be disappointed with this purchase! And though I haven’t written reviews yet, I have also purchased "20 ways to improve your Grappling," and "Grappling for Newbies," both by this author, both highly, highly recommended! Hope this review helps! Walt -- Tapmonster is funny, thought provoking, entertaining and inspiring.
