Book Review: mastering Jiu Jitsu

mastering Jiu jitsu

Mastering Jiu Jitsu’ is a well organized collection of the fundamentals of Jiu Jitsu, written by Renzo Gracie & John Danaher the book will help take your game to the next level.

The book Starts by going over the theory behind grappling and Jiu Jitsu, and then goes in to covering the history behind the creation of both Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, as their histories are very much tied. Its about chapter 3 were you will learn more about new concepts and developments in BJJ, and begin to learn about theory & strategy for applying techniques. Once you are acquainted with the theories and strategies, the book begins going over the 3 phases of combat free-clinch-ground, showing you dominant positions for all of them, as well as techniques for each.


Provided to the reader are images, cited sources or examples. This made reading this book feel more like a college textbook. Well sourced & detailed, I felt like I was able to take something away from the book even if it wasn’t just new techniques but a deeper understanding for everything in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

With the book having been well organized and written to direct readers with purpose, I found it an easy read, understandable, and easy to apply in to practice. I am proud to keep this book among my collection!
