This is the "Bully Proof" for beginning grapplers. It’ll help you develop a force field to help shield you from making newbie mistakes. The advice in Grappling 101 is information that people will not share with you during instruction or drill, but will tell you at the most inopportune moments. They are pointers that everyone should give you on day one, but end up as sporadic pieces of advice; usually shouted out while someone is handing your ass to you. This is not a handbook that shows you step-by-step sequences that will help you wreak havoc in your gym or on the competition mat. Instead, it is grappling theory. It was written with the intention of keeping you from becoming a victim. Theoretically, if you use the advice in this book it will save you a lot of grief and help you to avoid a lot of needless tapping. The information in Grappling 101 will take months and in some cases years away from time that would normally be spent as a newbie, then as a rookie. It will keep you from making what someone, who is hard on themselves, would describe as stupid or silly mistakes. ***Attention: This book is for beginners. Read this book before you begin grappling! That said; if you have already begun to study submission wrestling then you’ve probably learned what’s in this book the hard way. Yet, it is always good to review the basics, so Grappling 101 can be read by all.

MARCELO GARCIA—considered by many to be the best pound-for-pound Brazilian jiu-jitsu fighter in the world—has proven time and again that his unique style of grappling is one of the most effective forms of Brazilian jiu-jitsu in existence. In Advanced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Marcelo unveils the system of techniques that allowed him to conquer the world of BJJ. As a five-time BJJ World Champion and a four-time ADCC Submission Grappling World Champion, Marcelo has shown that his style of fighting translates to both gi and no-gi competitions, making his system a must for all who train in the grappling arts. Through detailed narrative and more than 2,000 step-by-step color photographs, Marcelo breaks down the arm drag, methods for taking and sustaining back control, finishes from the back, and a plethora of takedowns and guard passes. Leaving no stone unturned, he also sheds new light on the guillotine choke and omoplata submissions. To avoid watering down the pages with redundant transitions and submissions that are well known and widely taught in jiu-jitsu schools across the globe, Marcelo only covers the techniques that are unique to his system. Unlike a lot of jiu-jitsu systems, which include techniques that are limited in range and application, each submission covered in this technical manual is practical and guaranteed to work on opponents both large and small. Having competed in the Absolute Open Weight Division his entire life, Marcelo discarded the techniques that didnÆt work on larger, stronger opponents. What you are left with is a highly effective and efficient system of grappling that works for and on everyone. Let Advanced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu elevate your grappling game to the next level.

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.

Grappling is a smash-mouth activity. It is a put your beer down and let’s settle this type of martial art. Man vs. man, woman vs. man, child vs. man, it is one of the ultimate ‘prove it’ combat sports. Yet, once you get past the rough and challenging aspect of submission wrestling it’s easy to see that grappling is much more than that. It is also a very cerebral activity. Psychology is the study of mental processes and behaviors. By studying our psyches we hope to learn how to successfully navigate our world and become more capable in our endeavors. As the goal of theory is explanatory and predictive power, using psychology theories can help us to understand some of the existential questions behind our art and can help us to create better models for training and success. In other instances, it is just plain fun to think about. The application of psychology to submission wrestling is relatively new and in many cases non-existent, so this book is more of an exploration of what is possible. It covers a broad range of topics and doesn’t hesitate to introduce counterintuitive thought for the reader to ponder and digest. "Psychology of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu" will whet your appetite to see how psychology can be applied to grappling and not just in a generic sports psychology sense. Through the use of essay, "Psychology of BJJ" talks about what it’s like to be the new guy, problems with warm-ups, success by default, immersive environments, why you can’t always be nice in practice and even asks outright, “Are you happy?” If that is not enough, it also discusses why you absolutely must not avoid better grapplers, tells you what type of grappler you are and why your team is just as important as your coach. Additionally, "Psychology of BJJ" delves into the unconscious mind and talks about easy ways to improve by taking simple steps you probably never thought about before. It also discusses quirky, but valid, psychological theory, based on new research that can make a difference in your grappling game.

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.
