Synopsis

Just Ju-Jitsu by Ken Cole

In this comprehensive work, the author adopts a strictly non-partisan approach and presents a guide to 'a basic syllabus' for ju-jitsu. He does not examine any one particular style or syllabus formulated by a single ju-jitsu association and has written a book that will benefit all ju-jitsu students, whatever their style. Designed as a reference work for both experienced ju-jitsu practitioners and novices alike, the book provides students with a good grounding in the variety of techniques they might be expected to learn for their 'apprenticeship' - from white belt through to black belt first dan. This book: contains individual chapters on each of the belts; includes chapters on blocks, strikes and kicks, as well as throws, locks, strangles and chokes; and covers unarmed techniques, body weapons, katas and the use of some of the weapons employed in ju-jitsu, including the Katana, Bo, Nunchaka, short stick and tanto. It is extremely well illustrated with over 650 photographs.

Lovereading is an amazing place to be, the website is wonderful and to me if I'm sad I'll go here and it cheers me up!

Sophia Upton

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.
