My Book

Since 1994, I have answered thousands of questions on various online forums, through Skype, Messenger, Facebook email and over the phone, as well as with personalized many instructional videos I have delivered through smartphones on the subjects of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Jeet Kune Do, Self-Defense, Filipino Martial Arts and various other styles. From theory to training to practical application, I’ve answered every question thrown at me – including the question “Which sports bra do you recommend for training?”!

In this book (The Jiu Jitsu Answer Man, Volume One), you will read the updated versions of the questions I’ve answered – beginning in 1994 and up until recent months. In this volume, there are over 200 pages of content.

In this book, I answer twenty-plus important questions, show ten-plus new articles, share ten-plus fascinating stories from my travels around the world as well as show you a handful of never-before-seen video content!
