In late 2011 the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation updated its rules governing jiu-jitsu competition. The new edition contains tons of full color images, so the scenarios being described are communicated very well. However it’s not just the attractive design that’s been updated. There are changes to the rules themselves, some of which are subtle.
