Looks like the same author had a few other titles:

Strength Training for Runners and Hurdlers
http://search.barnesandnoble.com/use...20jesse&Itm=12

Explosive Muscular Power for Championship Football
http://search.barnesandnoble.com/use...20jesse&Itm=15

These are available through BN, and a hell of a lot cheaper...

I have read the one for runners, and think it is poop compared to the one for wrestlers. I will have to checkout the other form the lib.

If you go to this link and enter your zipcode you can find a Lib near you that has it.

Default Locating this Book

Hi folks,

For those of you that can't find this little gem, try Inter-Library Loan. It's more than likely gathering dust in the antique sports sections of some libraries.

For reference, several schools in Pennsylvania have a copy -- here's to PA's wrestling tradition. I got a copy on loan from Robert Morris University (in Pittsburgh); I also saw copies at Penn State, Edinboro, Lock Haven, and Millersville. So, if you're in PA, there's a copy somewhat close to you (except you poor saps near Wilkes-Barre). I also saw a copy at Rutgers.

Regards,
Mark

Just a note, this is only true at certain (competition-driven) schools and with certain (many) referees who can't grasp that ground work should last more than a few seconds. My school, run by an old-school Korean champion, typically spends about 60% of our time on our feet and 40% on the ground. Further, the lineage of techniques in GJJ/BJJ is from judo which in turn is from Japanese jiujitsu. To stave off the restless indians: the Gracies and company did a wonderful job improving the techniques they started with.

Anyway, the point is, it shouldn't be surprising to people that judo has a significant groundwork component to it.

Regards,
Mark
