    i have BJ's book next to the toilet. other than that... :dunno: fun to look at, but not really all that helpful. you get better at fighting by actually fighting and drilling/practicing shit. aside from maybe some techniques here and there the amount a book can teach you is pretty limited

    Bruce Lee's "The Art Of Expressing The Human Body" is fascinating. But it's not really a "fighting" book.

    Interesting. I'm definitely going to try to get my hands on it.
    I'm reading a pdf of Tao of Jeet Kune Do right now.

    There is a lot of philosophy in books you dont get out of "video instructionals" that help your game, no matter the art.
