Sadly, or not, I normally have no way of trying out the things in a book like this unless I go to my fighting class. This book heralds itself as being sort of ground-breaking. One thing I have learned in the world of mixed martial-arts, especially when you watch the fights, superlatives are tossed around like a drunk sorority girl at a raging frat party.
The first is he developed a no-gi system of fighting. This might not be huge anymore, but it could have been when he first started working on it. Traditionally bjj is done with a gi, and many of the moves utilize the fact that you and the other person are wearing those martial arts pajamas into the moves. This is just one example, there are a ton though. In the human fighting chess game that is bjj this is a pretty cool development and gives quite a bit of things to think about in developing plans of attack.
Up until reading this book I thought of the half-guard as kind of an awful transitional place where both people were trying to pass to better positions. Unlike chess though you have to be able to think where you are going to move all the various pieces which are your body parts, and there is not just one king, there are so many points on a human body that can be used to achieve victory but you have to have the physical ability to make the moves, and you have to think of this crap while you have someone else trying to make you as physically uncomfortable as possible.
For now I have to get ready to get beaten up a bit.
