Whats in your Grappling Library

As a Jiu Jitsu practicioner, Im curious as to what grappling backs you use as a reference to supplement your training and what you would recommend.

I have
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu: Theory and Technique - Renzo Gracie and Kid Peligro (highly recommended tho poorly organized)
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Basics - Gene Simco (very good book for pure beginners and intermediate white belts...this probably shouldve been my 1st book before Theory and Technique)
Submission Grappling - Royler Gracie and Kid Peligro (moderatly recommended for the no-gi people but alot of it is applicable w/ the Gi)

I just put in an order for Judo Unleashed; i have 1 semester left of college and I'll be joining the judo team...ive been pwning some of the team members on the ground but i get thrown like a rag doll during randori.
and "The Essential Guard" cause Ive been having trouble for the past month from both the top and bottom.

Any recommendations?

Kodokan Judo by Jigoro Kano
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu The Masters Text by Gene Simco (older edition, the new one is suppose to be good too)
The Fighter's Notebook
The Encyclopidia of Finishing Holds by Gene LeBell
The Essence of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by Rigan Machado
The Newaza of Kashiwazaki by (you guessed it) Katsuhiko Kashiwazaki
Tomoe-Nage by Katsuhiko Kashiwazaki
Judo Unleashed by Neil Ohlenkamp
Jiu-Jitsu Unleashed by Eddie Bravo
Takedowns by Mark Hatmaker

As far as recomendations I highly recomend Judo Unleashed for takedowns and throws, and also Simco's Master Text. Other than that I would say the best help you could find would be Saulo Ribiero's DVD sets. They're expensive, but well worth the money.

I don't read much on technique, because I find it's way easier to learn by doing and you can't train muscle memory with books.

I do have one book that I read for martial theory, and a lot of my game and my ideas in a fight come from it.

Aikido And The Dynamic Sphere by Adele Westbrook and Oscar Ratti

It's not just for Aikido, the marital ideas are very good, as are the illustrations, and they work.

absolutely, but for some of us who don't do judo or bjj it is a very good alternative and you will have some idea of what to do in that situation it just won't be as good though....I have the theory and technique book with renzo and royler. very good book for fighting and street fighting defense. Explains the moves step by step

ironman how old are you?

BJJ domination by rey diego.
I have a goerge st. peirre video that is terrible.

Anyway I'v watched some of the rey diego vid. cuz it has some good sweeps but mostly I rely on what I was taught by my instructor. If I;m at the gym by-myself I will roll around the mat, saying my motions outloud. I just don't like thinking I learned somthing from a vid.

Denis Kang My MMA DVD

Dan Hendersons DVD set
Stephan Kesting Grappling Drills
BJJ Theory & Technique Royler $ Renzo Gracie
BJJ Sub Grappling Royler Gracie
No Holds Bared Techniques Rodrigo Gracie
Bas Big Book of Combat Vol. 1 & 2

I'm pretty new to grappling and MMA. I just try to learn as much in class and use the dvd's and books as a reference to help me learn faster. I usually go to 2 classes per week (MMA) and roll around with my buddies an additional 1 or 2 days.
