Publisher's Summary

Feeling confused? Is being a white belt creating a few challenges?

This is a manual designed to get white belts to competent blue belts in as fast a time as possible.

Zen Jiu Jitsu is more a rendition of concepts than techniques. This is the simplest and easiest way to break down and simplify the many and varied ideas, philosophies, and combinations in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu arsenal. For both competition Jiu Jitsu and self-defense Jiu Jitsu, most white belts need to fully understand the concepts, but they can be VERY confusing!

Here is a short list of a few of the questions students ask that are covered in depth:

  • What is the guard and how do we utilize it best?
  • What options do we have from guard?
  • Why is posture and distance important?
  • The mount is a powerful position but how do I get there?
  • And when I do get there, how do I stay there?

Zen Jiu Jitsu: White to Blue answers these questions and many more...

It covers core principles, drilling techniques, choosing a school, technique concepts, tactical considerations, and more. It even includes some technique chains and maps for the white belt to try when doing specific training or sparring.

Don't forget every black belt started out as a white belt!

This manual also covers the motivational strategies to keep you moving along the path and toward becoming a competent blue belt.

This is a great manual for anyone just starting Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, traditional Jiu Jitsu, MMA, or grappling.

Poor Audio Recording

The audio quality is very poor. There are portions of the recording where you can hear cell phones in the background, long pauses, and even some unfinished sentences. Book is OK, but I would advise against the audio version.

A great book for all white belts

A very informative book to read if you’re a white belt trying to find your way in the technical world of BJJ. The author gives you some good ideas and tips on what you can do to improve your game and emphasizes the importance of drilling whether that be with a partner or a submission grappling dummy. I’ll definitely be listening to it a second time to let his advice sink in. Easy to listen to and he explains things in a simple way.
