The price is steep but when you read and see the content of how much you will learn from this Book, you will agree with me that is worth the price.
Go Buy It,you wont regret it!!!!!!!
The quality of the photos leave a lot to be desired, often leaving out subtle intermediate steps. Sometimes the photos are too dark to clearly see what is happening. Other times it is not very clear that the information on the page matches the photographs at all.
The biggest disappointment for me was the quality of the actual product. The paper was not very good quality and neither was the notebook. This is not a product that will last a long time if used as intended - removing pages to be taken with you to the gym or leafed through as a reference book on a regular basis. I would be happy to buy a bound book (softcover or hardcover) and just make photocopies of the pages I'm interested in to take to the gym.
I really wanted to like this book, but I found it did not meet expectations. For the price of this notebook, you are better off spending your money on a seminar or instructional video. Although a lot of people in BJJ are turned off about Judo, you will learn a lot of the basic techniques in this book by looking at Judo books such as "Best Judo" by Isao Inokuma which cost a fraction of the price (about 25% of the reviewed product's price).
The other reviewers are right, it's an excellent work. Except for some pics where the contrast between the fighter's clothes and SHOES (both in like colors)makes discernment difficult, the layout is exceedingly clear and instructive. Things I did not see mentioned by other reviewers:
The book has an INDEX (which I moved to the front of the book)that is probably one of it's best features (besides its ringbound format -- I like being able to take out a few pages, put 'em in a separate binder and bring 'em to my training session. Anytime a position comes up that you have questions about, you can check the index when u get home and "voila!" instant info.
When u buy it, you might try spltting it up into two 2" binders for ease of reference. Turning through 600+ pages can be a bit testy, unlike Mr. Jenness who was courteous and patient enough to answer a couple of my Qs in an e-mail exchange. Now if I only had MORE TIME to study it!
