    Got this book from Amazon yesterday... and I love it
    You can go on the tracker or Youtube to learn any individual techniques that you want, but the way this book conveys positions and ideas does make it seem more like a university text book than what I was expecting (even given the title).

    Who else has it?

    I have the book as well, its definitely the most indepth book out, what I really like is he shows the incorrect positions and variations of what he is trying to explain and the rationale behind it. What that allows me to do is capitalize if my opponent is making a mistake. I'm at the brown belt chapter. Also the book is concept based instead of specific moves and breakdowns on how to do them.

    It only covers gi
    Obviously some ideas will transfer, but a lot of it won't

    I would say the majority of the good stuff is fine for both gi and no-gi. Obviously there are some techniques that wont be applicable but there's more to this book than just techniques. It covers some fundamental concepts and has changed the way I approach each roll. Honestly it's the chapters on the defensive positions that I found most valuable. :coold:

    You're right, I'm fairly new at this, so to me if I see a position that "requires" holding the lapel with one hand and sitting up, I'm honestly unsure about where that hand should be if we're not wearing gis
    Because of that uncertainty, I personally find it much more helpful for the gi specifically
    If I had more experience I would probably feel differently

    I also found the defensive positions the most useful thus far. Mount survival -> Technical mount survival -> On top in his guard I found that sequence immediately useful against the stronger, more experienced guys

    I bought Nogueira's Passing Guard For MMA instructional DVD. It has helped me greatly. Guard passing has been my weak spot, but after this DVD it is probably my strongest aspect now.

    I love this book. Big ass book and not travel friendly though but that's not a big deal.
