Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, The Master Text By Gene Simco 800 Pages
The Master Text Begins with a detailed explanation of Jiu-jitsu's History, Philosophy and Science. Techniques are shown in a sequenced and well organized order, grouped into application (Sport, No Gi Grappling and MMA). Unlike many books written by an author showing what works for them or one specific style of Jiu-jitsu, Gene shares his experience of training with many different Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Champions and Instructors with the reader; this approach makes for a complete look at the art of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
This stands as the largest book of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu ever written. Much more than a first version, just the pages added to this book alone were larger than any other book written on the subject. Nearly 500 pages were added to the first version of the Master Text along with hundreds of new techniques. After a brief availability in stores, it was made exclusive to a select group of retailers in order to better control customer service quality and poor marketing. A very sizable discount was also given to all owners of the first edition for the first few months of this titles release. This book is not only Gene Simco’s flagship product, but a crowning achievement and symbol of his dedication to his customers and the martial arts community.
