Fighters Notebook by Kirik Jenness

I didn't mind this book, but Bas' Big Books - in my opinion - cover the ground better.


Dated, But Very Complete

This is one BIG book. Kirik is the owner and operator of arguably the largest MMA forum on the internet. He's also an experienced trainer. Despite not being a Gracie or a Shamrock, he's also an experienced competitor.

There's no need to go into a huge amount of detail here. The book is what it is. A collection of techniques that you can use in MMA.

The book shows a lot of techniques organised by position. The techniques aren't organised into a game or system, but are simply a catalogue of the basics from all the arts that contribute to the game.

It's a bit expensive for what it is, nowadays, with so many good texts on the market. But, if you see it around for a good price, pick it up. You never know what you can dig out of it.
