Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a guide to the most effective and devastating techniques in popular martial arts by World Champion and BJJ legend Alexandre Paiva. The book contains over 1,000 full color photographs demonstrating the moves that made the author the most feared competitor in BJJ circles and now one of the most sought after instructors. With sections devoted to both gi and no-gi techniques, whether training for a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament or a Mixed Martial Arts fight, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one book no true competitor can afford to miss.

About the Author

Alexandre "Gigi" Paiva is a legendary figure in the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jutsu. He has been World Champion, Pan American Champion, World Bronze Medalist, and five-time Champion of Campeonato Internacional de Masters e Seniors de Jiu-Jitsu. He is also one of the founders of Alliance Jiu-Jitsu--the only team to win every major BJJ competition in a single year--and heads their academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Paiva's students include two-time World Champion Fernando "Terere" Augusto da Silva and Mitsuyoshi Hayakawa, two-time winner of the All-Japan BJJ Open.

"I earned my black belt with Gigi in 2000 and got my first world title in the black belt. I am inspired by his actions on and off the mat." --Fernando Augusto da Silva, two-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion
"Alexandre Paiva is one of the most technical fighters of our generation. A great competitor has also become a great teacher. Along with his Master Romero Jacare and his friend Fabio Gurgel, he is a major contributor to the success of his team in the Alliance BJJ tournaments. A man of character, he is an example to be followed inside and outside the mat by the young." --Murilo Bustamante, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion and former UFC Middleweight Champion
"One of the best parts about this book is the sheer amount of photos to help illustrate every technique. This instructional boasts over 1,000 full-color photos that are arranged in gorgeous dynamic designs. The best analogy I can make about this is that it was like going to a Kosher delicatessen to get a Pastrami sandwich--when you order a sandwich, you get meat with a side of bread." --TheFightNerd.com blog
"Alexandre is one of the most technical guys that I had ever rolled with, excellent teacher and great person. If he is showing his moves in this book, you must have it: his techniques are unique. We have been working together for more than 25 years in order to build the Alliance school and I hope we can have at least 25 years more." --Fabio Gurgel, eight-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion and president of the Brazil-based Professional League of Jiu Jitsu
"I've always heard of Alexandre Paiva (Gigi) and what he knew when it came to jiu-jitsu, but when I met him in person, he was an encyclopedia of jiu-jitsu. In the little time I knew him, I learned a lot. And I'm sure I'll learn even more because he is an excellent teacher." --Rubens "Cobrinha" Charles, six-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion
"Alexandre "Gigi" Paiva is one of the legends of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Everyone knows him in Brazil, but being World Champion and being one of the founders of the World Champion Alliance-team, and having students all over the world, has established his name worldwide. I was lucky to meet him more than a decade ago in a seminar and was immediately impressed with his knowledge of techniques and physical ability to execute them... Today, I'm lucky to say that Alexandre is my longtime teacher and friend and I'm always looking forward to training and discussions with him, which gives me new horizons to life and training." --Markku Juntunen, Alliance-team member and first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt in Finland
"The book is a technical reference manual filled with over 1000 high-quality images, demonstrating techniques in all the common positions. So you can refer to it whenever and wherever you want." --BJJ Canvas blog
