When I purchased this book, I had some familiarity with standing game as a wrestler at our club regularly taught us the basics of wrestling. Still, during live rolls, I was still wary of going for the single or double leg shot - if I failed, I was in for hard times. I did not feel comfortable shooting without the repetition wrestlers get in month after month. I was looking for some material to supplement my standing game for the BJJer. This book was it.
Highly recommended for BJJers who want to improve their standing game - Marcelo goes over most of the good stuff wrestlers have been doing since they were born, but maybe news to BJJers. His section on arm drags was a game changer for me. If you get it right, you're on his back already - wow. Passing the guard is for suckers.
As noted elsewhere, Marcelo only goes over a few techniques but he goes into the details and variations, a mind map of his aggressive game. The prefaces of each chapter are nicely written and enjoyable in of themselves, elaborating on his fighting philosophy and reasoning behind his method and technique choices.
The only thing that keeps me from giving this book 5 stars is that they promote his website alot through out the book. Which is good for those people who already are members, but to promote it so hard they should have at least gave a one week free trial for us to use the book in conjunction with the site. I didn't like the approach of trying to sell me one thing after another.
All in all simple, effective jiu jitsu, with a great read on Marcelo's life. Hope this helps guys
In short, buy this book. Now.
The techniques in this book are more of a "complete" game showing the practical innovations Marcelo brings to sport BJJ. The authors have done an excellent job of explaining complex techniques in precise detail to make them effective, useful, and available to every BJJ practitioner. There are pages and pages dedicated to common positions that anyone who spends time on the mats finds themselves in, but with the details that make Marcelo Garcia so great and the proper attention to detail to make it available for every level.
The breakdown in this book is second to none that can truly be used to advance your game to the next level. Each section dedicates so much time and effort into explaining, in excellent detail, extremely useful and functional techniques that are obviously proven in competition. Pick this up today, it will help you from every position, every angle and compliment your game.

This book really needs to be read with MG's other book "The X Guard". Whereas that book sets out his bottom game, this book sets out his top / standing game with no techniques from guard.
Although this book features MG wearing a gi on the cover, very little of the technique it contains is gi-specific. So if, like me, you mainly train no gi, it's still useful.
I think the label 'Advanced' is potentially a bit misleading. Doing these techniques well is going to be difficult and take a lot of practise - but that's true of any BJJ technique. But the techniques aren't particularly obscure, esoteric or complicated. Rather, the moves all seem to be high % and reflect scenarios which come up all the time. This book is 'advanced' in the sense that it gives a break down of the strategy or reasoning which underlies each technique, discusses each technique in detail and explains how it fits into MG's competition game - detail which might go over the head of someone who was just starting out in BJJ.
Das Buch ist für Anfänger welche die Basics noch nicht beherrschen ungeeignet.
