Première phrase
When I started out in jiu-jitsu, the twister was one of the only submissions that I had down pat, so naturally I wanted to slap it on as much as humanly possible. Lire la première page

Un livre vraiment bien conçu, clair et bien expliqué. Un genie du JJB pour le MMA qui se prend pas pour chuck norris. Sincerement... genial!

another great Eddie Bravo book 14 décembre 2007
Par Kawakami - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
First let me say that this book and it's predecessor "Mastering the Rubber Guard" have totally changed my game. I always disliked grappling because the moves never worked well for shorter guys like me. I only practiced grappling to supplement my stand up fighting, because I disliked it so much. I did Shooto and BJJ, but I was always very "blah" about it. But now, I love grappling, and I have the excitement of learning something new every time I experiment with the moves in Bravo's books. And most importantly... these moves actually work.

While the first book was Bravo's bottom position game (guard, half guard, "pyramid") this book is his top game (mount, side control, and back). Like the first book, this book shows each move in step by step detail with full color photos taken from two angles. Also like the first book, he teaches all of the moves in a flowing sequence so you can get a good idea of how transition from move to move. Also like the first book, the first portion is dedicated to his childhood and his love of drugs. If this bothers you, then just flip through the first several pages until you see pictures of guys doing ju jutsu. Or, just rip out the first section entirely and throw it away. You'll still be left with exactly what you were looking for; a ju jutsu book that has a ton of great info and is worth every penny you paid for it.

If you are new to BJJ or a hardcore gi lover, then you'll find this book to be chock full of great material. You'll probably see setups that are a little bit complicated for you, positions you've never even imagined, and some basic no-gi strategy that probably no one but the advanced students in your school know about.

On the flip side, intermediate students and gi haters will find themselves frequently skipping over setups and no gi strategies that they are already very familiar with.

Personally, I like that the book has a lot of subtle strategies and techniques, and I'm sure that I'll return to this book again and again every time I can't quite figure out what I'm doing wrong. However, I was dissapointed that this book didn't have the same "wow" factor as the first one. Maybe if I had read this book first and the other one after, then I would feel the opposite way; I'm not sure. But after reading the rubber guard book, I didn't feel that Bravo's top game was quite as Earth-shattering as his bottom game.

That being said, I still feel that this book is full of great info and absolutely necessary to complete the system that Bravo began to lay out in his first book. The quality of the paper, photos, and writing EASILY makes this the best martial arts book I've ever seen (much less the best BJJ book out there). And I think that if you don't buy this book, then you are truly missing out on a whole new world in grappling.

remember the shockwaves from MTRG? exactly like that, only its all top game 2 décembre 2007
Par I. Maryanovsky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
wow wow wow, Eddie Bravo has realeased a very eorthy sequel to last years Mastering the Rubber Guard.
Im going to give a few explanations, because naturally, some people are going to be dissapointed at things that others love
Firstly, this book is NOT a guide to the twister and how to get into it, it covers eddies entire top game, truck(twister control position) included
it covers submissions transitions, and entries into a host of submissions from the top, and offers a method of reaching teh truck from almost any position, eddie also gives a huge section on finishing the twister, what to do if you cant finish it, such as transitions, an sother submissions from the truck.

eddies top game is very leg riding based, which is in my opinion, the best method for shorter guys to attack larger opponents, but tall people will benefit aswell
thats the beauty in Eddies book, there are moves from every position that are better for longer and shorter grapplers, so anyone can benefit from this book

as a negative, some people will be annoyed that Eddies first chapter is basically an autobiography, he states how he was molested by a babysitter as a child, and enjoyed it......
while I find his contemporary american style writing hilarious, anal retentive people will say things like"as a sensei, you have to be respectful of youre entire audience" or crap along the line sof that
I like what he writes, and if I didnt, id ignore what I thought was unnessecary, the book is there whether you like it or not, best make the best out of it.

regardless, Mastering the Twister and Mastering the Rubber Guard are bar none the best book set out there for grappling, and victory belt is going to keep making more

5/5 if you want a grappling book, which is exactly what this book was written for

Excellent follow up to "Mastering the Rubber Guard" 27 janvier 2008
Par O. Cruz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Just like his book on the Rubber Guard, Eddie Bravo's 'Mastering the Twister' is an innovative, effective and insightful system of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu without the gi, that both intermediate and longtime practitioners will benefit in many ways from.

Like 'Mastering the Rubber Guard', this isn't just an encyclopedia of moves and positions, but a complete gameplan and system. There is a flow-chart that details each position as it transitions to the next, and Eddie goes into excellent detail on the intricacies of each technique. Like other Victory Belt published books, this is as good an instructional you will get short of a DVD video release. Highly recommended.

This is advanced BJJ however, so beginners will be adviced not to just jump in without a firm grasp of the basics. It should also be noted that Mastering the Twister is a direct "sequel" if you will to Mastering the Rubber Guard, so it will be good to start with that book first, though not totally necessary. What MTRG did for the bottom game, MTTwister does for the top game.

An innovative and effective top game is revealed in great detail 20 décembre 2007
Par canswim85 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Eddie Bravo won't deny that he has never been athletically gifted, yet he has accomplished some amazing feats in no-gi grappling. His success stems largely from the fact that he analyzes every position and makes adjustments to fit his body type, and in the process he often creates revolutionary methods of playing a certain position, such as the rubber guard, which is outlined in his previous book, Mastering the Rubber Guard, or the monkey mount and twister side control, which are outlined in this book.

This book is a great tool for any grappler because it divulges a series of effective techniques and set-ups that currently are not widely used, such as the twister. The twister, also known as the wrestler's guillotine, is a submission hold that can be performed from a variety of positions, and Eddie clearly outlines several paths to get to the twister.

The first section covers twister side control, which is a modified version of the standard side control that offers a great deal of control over the opponent, as well as many paths to the twister, to the opponent's back, or the option of mounting. Bravo's methods of maintaining the mount position, as well as attacking from the mount are different than any other jiu-jitsu practitioner that I've seen, and he also includes a detailed description of a variety of transitions and submissions from the mount. Attacks from the back, twister set-ups from the back, and attacking off of a sprawl are also covered. Perhaps the best thing about this book is that, like Mastering the Rubber Guard, Bravo shows how everything can fit together, via descriptions and flow charts.

The book will likely receive some criticism due to the arguably controversial content of the acknowledgements section, in which Eddie tells his life story. However, it is important to note that the acknowledgements section is completely optional, and if you elect to skip it entirely, it will have no effect on your ability to understand the jiu-jitsu-based concepts of the book. In addition, this book may receive some criticism because it does not cover guard passes, half-guard passes, attacks from the North-South position, or attacking the turtle. Though these positions are important, it should be noted that this book is most likely not intended to be viewed as an encyclopedia of jiu-jitsu, but rather a guide which divulges some rarely-used, innovative, and effective techniques that may be added to your arsenal to supplement the more standard techniques that grapplers already know.

All of the moves are outlined in great detail with color photographs from multiple angles. This book divulges so many new moves that after reading it your arsenal will surely grow. Your options of attacking or improving your position will expand, and your opponents will likely be thrown into many situations with which they are unfamiliar. This book probably isn't the best for beginners because it does not cover many important positions, but for those of you who have an idea of what to do regardless of what position you find yourself in, this book is a must-read as it will likely work wonders for your game.
