To train or not to train? If I decide to start martial art training, what style should I choose and where do I start?
These are some of the main questions that people ask me, so I dedicated an entire show to breaking down Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Karate, Kickboxing and a few others. I focus on comparing Japanese Jiu Jitsu and BJJ. All of the info I cover is based on my own experience in training for 20+ years in a variety of martial art disciplines, my many conversations with other martial artists along the way, and my ongoing research. See the episode link below and enjoy!
Here are a few books I recommend for every serious martial student whether you are experienced or just starting out on your martial art journey:
The Book of Five Rings – Musashi
The Art of Expressing the Human Body – Bruce Lee
Zen In The Martial Arts – Hyams
Japanese Jiu Jitsu Secrets – Craig
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Theory & Technique – Gracie
GSP The Way I Fight
Complete Book Of Self Defence – Ochiai
