A Beginner’s Guide to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a helpful handbook to help practitioners of BJJ learn and understand this complex martial art. It is written for the complete beginner, and works best together with a good coach and regular training. This book is printed in the U.S.A. on high-quality art paper for taking notes and coloring.
Inside these pages, you will learn about BJJ position-by-position. It also includes warm-ups and fundamentals that you can practice anywhere. There is an introduction to BJJ, a shortened version of the Hierarchy of Positions, and more! (You can buy the full print of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Hierarchy of Positions on this website)
Borrowing from principles of Universal Design for Learning, this book includes faceless figures that can be left blank or colored in. Highlighter and pen will not bleed through these pages, inviting note-taking and personalization. This book is suitable for adults and children.
