That’s how good I thought the first book was. This book is better; much better. In fact there is really no reason to pick up the original now. It covers everything notable in the original only with huge improvements in most of it, closing holes that time had revealed in the previously state of the art techniques. Additionally, there is way more material. Advanced moves for rubber guard specialists like the “double bagger” series and also tons of game that is great even if you don’t play rubber guard or aren’t very flexible like the “prison guard” and many more options from the improved “lockdown” half guard and “dogfight”. Honestly, whether you read the first book or not, everyone that does Jiu-Jitsu or MMA should pick this one up. Not only is this the ONLY book I’d consider consulting for the rubber guard or lockdown but I’d also say it’s the best laid out path for a complete guard game I’ve ever seen (complete with MANY flow charts and advice on when to use what and why).
This book is laid out differently than Mastering the Rubbe Guard; Advanced Rubber Guard gets right to the meat of the book, the rubber guard. What really stands out to me is the instructions on how to set-up rubber guard from traditional attacks (kimura, hip bump) and the details on how to re-counter from the defenses of those attempts to get a clinching style of attack going. Also the many triangle set-ups from common rubber guard counter techniques are very useful.
If you are interested in the 10th Planet style of jiu-jitsu, I would definitely recommend picking this book up, and also come and register at the 10th Planet forum at 10thplanetjj.com
As for the book itself, it has high quality thick color pages, the photography is excellent, and as usual it's very well written with detailed descriptions for every step. What's different from the other RG book is this book's layout feels more modernized. The fonts are easier to read and the graphics and color scheme are super clean. One thing I like is Victory Belt chose to make multiple flow charts for each major topic rather than having one large flow chart at the beginning of the book which felt like they were cramming a lot of material in a relatively small space.
Do yourself a favor and get this book!
The delivery was excellent.
This book contains no blah regarding cannabis. It is much more serious and it helps to demonstrate Eddie's Bravo great ability to analyze movement.
The way the techniques are shown is quite good and the illustration is rich and informative. It is one of the few books that have so rich troubleshooting section. Alternatives for so many counters that you may face.
It is a great book to help you with your bottom and half guard game. Even if you do not care for the rubber guard, this book is great as it touches many other positions like half guard, butterfly, quarter guard, etc.
Eddie Bravo seems to be a master in sweeping from his back and exploiting bad positions.
I will update my review as I wish to spend more time with this book. I am not 100% sure, but I think that it is not required to have the first book as a lot of his techniques are repeated here but are updated with some additional troubleshooting.
I am not following the 10th planet discipline, as I study in a Gracie Barra dojo, but Eddies' Bravo books influenced my game big time. Together with Ryan Hall deep half guard DVD it will help you develop a complete bottom game.
The odd names for techniques are memorable, but not very helpful. For example, if I said "Jiu Claw," you'd have no idea what that means, and even after I show it to you, it might take a while for the name to stick. Worse, those terms have nothing to do with any related movements or positions. A number of the terms are also related to Marijuana, which Bravo talks about in the book.
And of course, there is the fact that if you can't do a full-lotus you can't perform 90% of these techniques. Other jiujitsu forms are certainly more available to less flexible folk, while this style works exclusively with those who have extreme hip and leg flexibility.
