With extensive, step-by-step photographs and instructions, this jiu-jitsu guide is an effective tool for mastering this ancient martial art. The original Japanese martial art developed by the elite samurai class during Japan's feudal era, Jiu-jitsu is the forerunner of Judo and the precursor of today's ultimate fighting styles, such as mixed martial arts (MMA). For centuries, this method of unarmed self-defense proved so successful in combat that it was kept secret and taught only to a select few. Based on the author's study with instructors at the Tokyo police academy, this martial arts book presents all the traditional techniques of Jujitsu, also known as Jiu-jitsu. These techniques teach you valuable restraining methods that force your opponent to submit without abuse by using pressure points. It shows you tips for search and seizure, and the almost extinct art of Hojojutsu—how to tie people up without using any knots. Japanese Jiu-jitsu: Secret Techniques of Self-Defense addresses and demonstrates the full range of Kaisho Goshin Budo Taiho Jitsu Ryu (Tokyo police self-defense). Learn specific techniques such as: The use of hands Throwing an opponent Attacking vital points with strikes and kicks The use of weapons (like the staff). Designed as a training manual, this fascinating Jiujitsu book also serves as a remarkable illustrated guide to the secret art of Japanese samurai self-defense.

Even if you take just the one most important tip away from this book, it will be worth 10 x more than its weight in gold. The answer to why and when to choose the reverse lunge over the forward lunge. Understand how to create hundreds of lunge variations yourself. Learn how to fix and pick up on common issues with the lunge. “The lunge is functional as it is a transitory moment in walking where a squat with feet parallel is stationary. This adds a requirement for balance under load with motion, a situation where injuries and falls often occur. The lunge improves our human movement patterns by making them stronger in a practical sense.” Dave Murray The lunge is an important exercise everyone should include in their training for strength, stability, and even added flexibility. This book covers the basic lunge and its variations, muscles used, step by step break down, priceless tips that will help you perform better, know why to chose one over the other, and much more. Links to several videos of lunges with kettlebells are also included. “Following my knee replacement, the lunge is the hardest but most important movement to master as it utilizes all of the stabilizing muscles and tendons. The lunge also means that I will have a powerful base for nearly all judo moves and stances. Mastery of the lunge means that I’ll have functional movement for the rest of my life.” Stuart Rotman All Cavemantraining books: Master The Hip Hinge (currently viewing) On Amazon, iTunes, or CavemantrainingMaster The Lunge On Amazon, iTunes, or CavemantrainingMaster Kettlebell Grips and Racking On Amazon, iTunes, or CavemantrainingKettlebell Training Fundamentals On Amazon, iTunes, or Cavemantraining Contains the kettlebell grips and racking bookMaster The Kettlebell Clean On Amazon, iTunes, or CavemantrainingMaster The Kettlebell Press On Amazon or CavemantrainingMaster The Kettlebell Swing On Amazon or CavemantrainingKettlebell Workouts And Challenges 1.0 On Amazon, iTunes, or CavemantrainingFlexibility, Mobility, and Strength Without Yoga On Amazon, iTunes, or Cavemantraining “The lunge is important for strong muscles of the buttocks, we stretch the hip flexors and exercise the balance of the body.” Vjekoslava Petroci Fićković Table of Contents Master The LungeDefinitions and TerminologyMusclesBodyweight LungeQuadriceps AKA QuadsGluteus MaximusHamstringsStabilizersWeighted Lunge StabilizersWhat Is Pelvic Tilt and Why Is It Important to Know?Basic LungeMain PointsTrainer CuesImproved PostureForward FlexionLoad the QuadricepsRecommended FootwearWhere to Put Your Hands and Does It Really Matter?Lunge DepthRear LegSliding Rear LegProgrammingFor StrengthFor CardioFor ExplosivenessFor PowerFor StabilityFor FlexibilityMajor BenefitsBlack and White ProgrammingProgressionIssuesLower-back PainKnee PainLosing BalanceHow to Do the Weighted Racked Reverse LungeSome People Ask “Why Are Reverse Lunges More Taxing?”Bad LungeProgressionBecome Certified
