    looking forward to the actual book - I'm such a Luddite

    then again, I'll want to get the book signed eventually, when I run into AM and Sr. again. Can't imagine how that would work on my iPad......... I'd rather kill a tree, read it, write my little margin notes, and get it signed by the authors, and maybe the subjects in the pictures.

    You can pre-order the print version here

    http://www.blackbeltmag.com/winning

    Thus being the first kid on your block to have it. Just FYI Bill, the book was #9 in the martial arts category on Amazon and that was without even having a print copy out yet, so there. The money I make from it is going to a charity Julia chose - it helps runaways living on the street. Jim's share is going to cheap women and expensive cigars - no seriously, I believe it is going to help pay expenses for kids on his team.

    You may be #9 on Amazon, but you will forever be #1 in my heart ... even though you never come down any more ... even for one of Jerry Hays' "old farts lunches" ... and you are a month older than me old lady.

    <<<< BTW the "sticking out the toungue nyah nyah nyah" smiley is over here on the left of the screen.

    Good luck with the book, best to your youngest and her chosen charity.

    Maybe I can come down again after this month. Check your email for what I've been up to - don't know how I missed you on the original list! I'd post it here but it's way off topic

    Amazon says it takes 1-2 month for delivery. Is this true?

    It may be true that it takes 1-2 months to get from Amazon because they must have ordered a limited number and sold out. You can get it without waiting from Black Belt http://www.blackbeltmag.com/shop/winning-on-the-ground-training-and-techniques-for-judo-and-mma-fighters-book/

    The book sold better than expected and they are having more printed. I ordered 70 myself and sold them in a week at clinics and just to people who asked me for them (a few went to winners of the free rice contest and to the first five people who signed up for the Don't Throw Up, Throw Down clinic)

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I downloaded the the book to my Ipad and quickly decided I wanted a hard copy too.

    I like the straight forward language instead of " uke moves to position A so you quickly move to control him by placing you right extremeity 45 degrees to his hip whilst maintaining control on his pectoral muscle..." blah, blah... that is in so many books on groundwork.

    I'm glad you liked it. We tried to write a book that we would like to read.

    I ordered the book from Amazon on 3/22 and received it on 4/2, 11 days later. On Amazon now, 4/2/13, its listed in its normal delivery cycle.
