With extensive, step-by-step photographs and instructions, this jiu-jitsu guide is an effective tool for mastering this ancient martial art. The original Japanese martial art developed by the elite samurai class during Japan's feudal era, Jiu-jitsu is the forerunner of Judo and the precursor of today's ultimate fighting styles, such as mixed martial arts (MMA). For centuries, this method of unarmed self-defense proved so successful in combat that it was kept secret and taught only to a select few. Based on the author's study with instructors at the Tokyo police academy, this martial arts book presents all the traditional techniques of Jujitsu, also known as Jiu-jitsu. These techniques teach you valuable restraining methods that force your opponent to submit without abuse by using pressure points. It shows you tips for search and seizure, and the almost extinct art of Hojojutsu—how to tie people up without using any knots. Japanese Jiu-jitsu: Secret Techniques of Self-Defense addresses and demonstrates the full range of Kaisho Goshin Budo Taiho Jitsu Ryu (Tokyo police self-defense). Learn specific techniques such as: The use of hands Throwing an opponent Attacking vital points with strikes and kicks The use of weapons (like the staff). This fascinating Jiujitsu book, designed as a training manual, also serves as a remarkable illustrated guide to the secret art of Japanese samurai self-defense.

Hey! How Much Do You Bench Press? There’s a reason why the bench press is the most popular lift in the gym: it lets you lift more weight and activate more muscle in the upper body than any other move. With just this one lift, you can work your deltoids, your pecs, your triceps, forearms, abdominals, and even your hand muscles. What you didn't know is bench press is also good for punching ... Wow! But what if I told you there is an exercise many trainers and experts including myself consider the “King” of exercises, would you be interested in learning? Add two more moves and you’ve got a complete body workout. Squat and deadlift. That’s it. If you didn't know, squats target your glutes (butt), while working your quads and hamstrings and calves and doubling up on your abs. Which is good for kicking. You can never get enough work on your abs, especially when you are being kicked and punched in them for competition or in a self-defense situation, right? Now round out and wrap up your workout (and your backside) with the deadlift. Everything from your neck down to your calves, your whole spine and back, gets strengthened with the deadlift. With all those muscle groups being affected, you need to train correctly to maximize your gym time and your weight training time. This book is going to make sure you do just that. By understanding the following: Technique & Form Starting Weights for lifting Between repetitions and Workouts Nutrition and Food Progress on a Daily, Weekly and Monthly Basis Expectations for development and Growth In this book, Resistance Training: For Martial Artist, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Boxing and All Combat Fighters, I will tell you that "King" movement mentioned above and what I have learned in my 30 plus years of competing, training and teaching. I understand you may not want to be a combat sports competitor but maybe pick up one or two things to gain strength and a technique to defend yourself well it’s in the book. This quick, easy-to-read book can make the difference between success and frustration. You’ll know what you’re doing on your first trip to the gym without suffering the insecurities many first-timers do. If you’re a gym-rat, you’ll pick up new tips and you’ll be reassured you’re reaching your goals every time you hit the gym. You can track your goals in the included guide.

For those of you who have experience in grappling and striking, but do not know quite how to put it all together, this book may be for you. From the beginning to the end, "An Introduction to MMA" verbally and visually illustrates how to combine common techniques from boxing, kickboxing, and grappling into a single art - mixed martial arts. The text focuses on basic to intermediate striking combos, striking to takedown combos, and even grappling combos (submission chaining), not to mention addressing a few other areas as well. Boxing combos lead into takedowns, which lead into submissions or ground and pound, sometimes both, as you work through this text. Aimed at helping you put together techniques you already know, "An Introduction to MMA" does not spend a lot of time reviewing the basics from each art, but instead focuses on what techniques from each art flow together. Therefore, if you have a basic knowledge of boxing, kickboxing, or both, and a bit of grappling under your belt, this manual may be able to help you take your skills to the next level, or at least improve what you do know. Either way, you are in for an informative and entertaining read. HowExpert publishes quick 'how to' guides on all topics from A to Z by everyday experts.
