5.0 out of 5 stars John Danaher's advice to jiu-jitsu practitioners comes alive, all in three volumes.
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 26, 2020
John Danaher is one of the most famous and capable Brazilian Jiu-jitsu coaches on the planet. He is the leader for the Danaher Death Squad competition team. He is also a Renzo Gracie black belt and a former bouncer and philosophy student. The Danaher Diaries consist, as of the time of writing, of three volumes. They were published by one or more people calling themselves “Heroes of the Art.” The books are straightforward reproductions of Mr. Danaher’s social media posts, primarily from Instagram. Only text is included, although the first volume contains an introduction written by the publisher. I have not seen any commentary indicating Mr. Danaher is aware of these volumes or if he has anything to do with them.

Mr. Danaher has written other materials on Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. He essentially wrote the text of the 2001 book Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: Theory and Technique, and the 2003 book Mastering Jujitsu. (Note the spelling of jujitsu; this is unusual in a book on modern jiu-jitsu, but may indicate Mr. Danaher’s preference for the traditional names of judo-derived and associated topics.)

Mr. Danaher is probably the most eloquent and philosophical advocate for jiu-jitsu on the world stage. Many in the community see jiu-jitsu as an assortment of techniques, with the newest or unseen likely to win against experienced practitioners. Danaher sees jiu-jitsu as a set of integrated systems, each with a goal. One cannot necessarily learn jiu-jitsu from a book, especially when compared to the video instructionals Mr. Danaher has been publishing in recent years. However, these volumes provide short reminders and insights that will definitely help anyone looking to improve their training and performance.

I have very few concerns with these books. From a production standpoint, they are simple amalgamations of Instagram posts. Those who wish to save the $4.99 per volume cost could choose to consume the content from the source. I would have preferred if the compilers of these volumes would have corrected the typos that occasionally appear in Mr. Danaher’s writings. The third volume appears to have suffered some minor production issues. There are large spacing gaps between posts in the Kindle version.

I have bought, and will continue to buy, the volumes in this series. I enjoy reading Mr. Danaher’s thoughts in this format, rather than as an Instagram feed. I would like to hear that Mr. Danaher is receiving the majority of the royalties from book sales, as this is his material and subject to his copyrights. As I am barely competent in a few aspects of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, I appreciate all the wisdom I can glean from texts such as this. Those who are much more capable practitioners will likely have better success in implementing Mr. Danaher’s strategies!
