Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Having to manage multiple clients, with multiple and varying problems, while at the same time analytically and tactically responding to a constant barrage of criticisms, is in my view the reason for the high burn-out rate, depression and substance abuse rampant in the legal profession. Ryan’s application of a martial art and combat sport to counter the negative physical, spiritual and mental aspects of practicing law is just the kind of aggressive response we need to achieve balance, success and longevity in our careers.”—John P. Cleary, Partner, PROCOPIO

“The book that you are about to read will give you priceless ideas and the inspiration to have a great life and understand how Law and BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) can be mutually beneficial. Several people (such as me and the Author) can attest that. In my BJJ School in Brazil, we have the COURT class, early morning, where several judges, lawyers, prosecutors and more train hard, interact, have fun, take their showers and go to work. And we all love it! So make sure that you keep your Suit and Tie REALLY close to your Gi and belt every time you leave your house in the morning. Your body, your soul and your health will thank you!”—From the Foreword by Vinicius Draculino Magalhaes, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Champion, Director Gracie Barra Texas, Attorney, and 4th Degree Black Belt

"I don't know Jiu Jitsu. And the only laws I know are the ones I've broken. But the lessons in Jiu Jitsu Jurisprudence are universally applicable and inspirational no matter your profession. In this clever and provocative book, Ryan Danz teaches us all how to cope with life's obstacles and overcome our own personal limitations and challenges. Amazing perspectives from an incredible entrepreneur."—Josh Kilmer-Purcell, New York Times best-selling author of I Am Not Myself These Days and The Bucolic Plague; star of The Fabulous Beekman Boys, and winner of The Amazing Race
