A Thorough Study on Chinese Grappling, Thor Bjorn "Norseman" (Amazon reviewer) September, 2006
What a rare gem of a book! I have studied Jujutsu and Judo, and been a close-combat instructor in the U.S.M.C. I thought I'd seen everything, but this is truly unique. Theres always a new perspective. Its a compilation of some 75 techniques, generally throws and take-downs, in the unique and unconventional manner often found in Chinese martial-arts. This is real Wushu for close-combat! A common critisism that "chair-borne rangers" and "armchair commandos" make about various martial-arts books, is the usual nagging about a certain technique "not being practical against certain opponents". The fact is, any technique can be effective if you develop your skills, and use it in the right circumstance at the right time. A real martial-artist knows this. Its just common sense. You will find many effective techniques portrayed in this book, some techniques that conventional grapplers may not have considered.An EXCELLENT book for those who love wrestling!!, email@example.com (Amazon reviewer) March, 2008
Having experience in wrestling I am always on the lookout for books that can teach me how to use my wrestling skill in "real life" situations or just wrestling around with friends. This book is the best one I've seen yet. It includes several well illustrated throws and takedowns I would have never thought of on my own and yet some of them are so simple. The last chapter is on groundfighting and can teach any wrestler how to use his balance and experience on the ground to make your opponent submit instead of just pinning them. It does help if you have a little experience in a wrestling like sport (judo,jujitsu) just so you know how to control your weight and your opponents. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
