When I purchased this book, I had some familiarity with standing game as a wrestler at our club regularly taught us the basics of wrestling. Still, during live rolls, I was still wary of going for the single or double leg shot - if I failed, I was in for hard times. I did not feel comfortable shooting without the repetition wrestlers get in month after month. I was looking for some material to supplement my standing game for the BJJer. This book was it.
Highly recommended for BJJers who want to improve their standing game - Marcelo goes over most of the good stuff wrestlers have been doing since they were born, but maybe news to BJJers. His section on arm drags was a game changer for me. If you get it right, you're on his back already - wow. Passing the guard is for suckers.
As noted elsewhere, Marcelo only goes over a few techniques but he goes into the details and variations, a mind map of his aggressive game. The prefaces of each chapter are nicely written and enjoyable in of themselves, elaborating on his fighting philosophy and reasoning behind his method and technique choices.
The techniques in this book are more of a "complete" game showing the practical innovations Marcelo brings to sport BJJ. The authors have done an excellent job of explaining complex techniques in precise detail to make them effective, useful, and available to every BJJ practitioner. There are pages and pages dedicated to common positions that anyone who spends time on the mats finds themselves in, but with the details that make Marcelo Garcia so great and the proper attention to detail to make it available for every level.
The breakdown in this book is second to none that can truly be used to advance your game to the next level. Each section dedicates so much time and effort into explaining, in excellent detail, extremely useful and functional techniques that are obviously proven in competition. Pick this up today, it will help you from every position, every angle and compliment your game.
