Book Description: Hätte es keine Mitsuyo Maedas gegeben, mit der Betonung auf dem Plural Maedas, wäre das Jiu-Jitsu im Lauf des 20. Jahrhunderts vermutlich in Vergessenheit geraten. Das Überleben des wertvollen und einzigartigen Wissens dieser Kampfkunst haben wir zahlreichen Meistern zu verdanken, die in jungen Jahren um die vorletzte Jahrhundertwende ihre Heimat Japan für eine ungewisse Zukunft im Westen verliessen. Sie alle nahmen einen beschwerlichen Weg auf sich, sei es um ein nach der Meiji-Restauration ab 1868 sich rapide veränderndes Japan hinter sich zu lassen und bessere Perspektiven für ihr zukünftiges Leben zu schaffen, oder sei es, weil sie wie Maeda von ihren Lehrmeistern ausdrücklich in die weite Welt hinaus geschickt worden waren um die «sanfte Kunst» zu verbreiten. Das ist meine Geschichte des Jiu-Jitsu das aus Japan, nach Europa und nach Brasilien kam, um sich später in die ganze Welt zu verbreiten. -Franco Vacirca Garcia

Book Description: Had there been no Mitsuyo Maedas, with the emphasis on the plural Maedas, jiu-jitsu would probably have been forgotten during the 20th century. We owe the survival of the valuable and unique knowledge of this martial art to numerous masters who left their native Japan at a young age around the turn of the century before last for an uncertain future in the West. They all took an arduous journey, either to leave behind a rapidly changing Japan after the Meiji Restoration in 1868 and to create better prospects for their future lives, or because, like Maeda, they were expressly sent out into the wide world by their masters to spread the "gentle art". This is my story of the Jiu-Jitsu that came from Japan to Europe, and to Brazil, to later spread throughout the world. -Franco Vacirca Garcia

Book Description: "My friend, have you ever done any martial arts? My family has been doing Jiu-Jitsu for sixty-five years. We''re champions. We''re very well known in Brazil. Why don''t you come by for a free class?" I couldn''t have imagined it then, but that moment would mark the beginning of the rest of my life... Richard Bresler is widely recognized as the first student of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in the USA; his memoir, WORTH DEFENDING, chronicles his over 40 years'' involvement with Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, through the "Gracie Garages," founding of the Gracie Academy, and the inception of the UFC. Praise for Richard Bresler and Worth Defending... "No one did more to help my dad--and my family''s art--establish a foothold in the US than Richard Bresler. From the garages to the original Academy to the UFC, Richard was there doing whatever he could to make it happen. Anyone training Jiu-Jitsu in America today owes Richard Bresler their thanks."--Rener Gracie "Richard''s book is an intimate telling of one man''s journey in Martial Arts; a great insight into the origins of BJJ in America. His extensive time spent with the Gracie family and his dedication to the craft makes Richard an authoritative voice on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. If you are interested in learning how it all began, definitely pick up this book." --Lowell Anderson, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt "Richard was a major influence on me in my early days of learning Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Thanks to Richard''s help, I was able to pass the Gracie Academy''s strict requirements to earn my Instructor Training Certificate. Richard''s generosity in helping me train for this will never be forgotten. He is a true BJJ inspiration."--Steve Maxwell, Black Belt Professor, 6th Degree Relson Gracie''s first Black Belt and one of the first Americans to earn a Black Belt from the Gracie Family "Richard Bresler was Rorion [Gracie]''s first student in the USA. He was a great supporter of the inauguration of the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in California. Thank you Richard!"--Master Pedro Sauer, 8th Degree Coral Belt "I''m very proud of Richard Bresler for his support of Jiu-Jitsu, being one of the first Americans to actually learn the art! I awarded him his black belt and he''s surely a professional capable of teaching you every aspect of the art!"--Master Fábio Santos, 7th Degree Coral Belt "I started training in November of 1984 in a garage in Hermosa Beach. It''s considered the original Gracie Garage, but there was a garage before that and that''s where Richard started training about five years before me. I remember training with Richard in the beginning of my training. He caught me in a triangle choke and I didn''t even realize I was in a submission! Richard has been a good friend and health mentor to me."--Chris Saunders, 5th Degree Black Belt About the Authors RICHARD BRESLER is widely recognized as the first student of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in the USA.
