Overview

It exposes the truth about grapplers and grappling that is never discussed but everyone thinks about. We are all guilty of some of the Lazy Man's practices to varying degrees.

Injured Grapplers' Psyche Out Methods
Superhero Taps
Blue Belt Heaven
Grappling Dummy and Heavy Bag Secrets

and so much more.


From the author:

This is not a how to book. So there won't be any pictures demonstrating techniques. If there were I would lose all credibility. It is more of an approach towards grappling; my overarching philosophy.

I will not be sharing my life story and detailing all of my wins at NAGA or Grapplers Quest or how I trained five hours a day for six years to get where I am now. I am just a man who loves grappling but not all of the extras that are attached to it. If I could get up in the morning and just learn a technique and grapple for about 20 minutes then life would be golden.

I am like BJ Penn who popularized the term, "Just Scrap." I feel the same way.

Just Grapple!

As a BJJ guy and submission grappler (no-gi) this is the first grappling book that I have read that is for pure entertainment. At the same time I learned things about grappling that I never really thought about before. I bought it so I could read it while riding the subway to work. The author is hilarious and so frank with his commentary I kept laughing out loud without meaning to. People kept looking at me but it was funny. I've done and seen a lot of the things he's talked about so it hit home. I'm a new fan!
