    Well most of things he does, in fact 90% of what he does is solid basics, he has a couple tricks like with his 2 step armbar, but i think that can be found from other instructors on youtube.

    We all on this forum love jiu jitsu and i'm sure we would all be pre ordering a book by the man him self. Doesent rickson owe it too us?

    Just wondered thats all. Any you guys ever thought that?

    Agreed, if rickson did a book of the stuff he actually uses it would be a pretty short book of course he could always pad it out with stuff for people of other body types, attributes etc.

    You cant see the subtlety of a masters technique on youtube. Personally i dont think i am qualified to speak about the mans ability. I probably never will be. Aside from that, the knowledge he has mostly cant be written down, firstly its mostly tacit and secondly its contained in his body rather than his mind. If this were not the case then someone with a photographic memory could learn BJJ by just watching.

    I would definitely like to here what he has to say on fight fitness, mentality, and the philosophy of Jui Jitsu. It would be like reading the Takuan Soho of BJJ.
