Overview

Jiu Jitsu Jurisprudence introduces something new into your life that will revolutionize every aspect of your being: your body, your mind, and your soul. It will help you find purpose outside of the office and beyond the courtroom. You will feel better, think clearer, be happier, and above all, find physical and emotional fulfillment that will positively affect your law practice and, perhaps more importantly, your life practice.

This is the first book of its kind to discuss the martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu within the context of the legal profession. It offers all attorneys (and other non-legal professionals) insight into one of the most complete—yet still relatively unknown—martial arts disciplines in the world. You will discover how to transition from the "Lawyers Mind" to the "Jiu Jitsu Mind" while learning about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu's rich history and culture, basic techniques and moves, diet, and its emphasis on camaraderie both on and off the mat, all of which will help you become a better, more focused, less ego-driven yet more self-esteemed lawyer, professional, and person overall.

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

Meet the Author

Since graduating from law school in 2004, Ryan Danz has gone on to an in-house counsel position at a New York City-based hedge fund, reached the Final 4 of The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, opened his own financial services company that handles more than $6.5 billion in assets under management, and raced around the world on The Amazing Race.
