The Anderson Silva Create-A-Technique Contest

A few days ago FighterXFashion posted an entertaining and informative interview of Glen Cordoza, co-author of The Anderson Silva MMA Instruction Manual. It was a unique way to look at a fighter as a teacher and tactician through a third party. We like the book a lot, it’s passed around the MiddleEasy Network offices regularly and we wanted to share it with you guys.

This is the second book by the writing duo of Cordoza/Silva, it focuses on the Muay Thai Clinch, Takedowns, Takedown Defense and Ground Fighting. It’s really everything a grappler with a coffee table could ever ask for, it features detailed descriptions and has neat pictures on how to decimate your opponent in a litany of ways, straight from The Spider himself. Collectively, we decided one of our talented readers deserved to get a free copy, here’s what you have to do.

As useful and informative Anderson Silva’s MMA instructional manual is for beginners and vets alike, you won’t always have to use Ando’s signature Thai plum technique when you are grappling with your buddies in your Mom’s basement. This contest is for everyone out there who has had the wherewithal to grapple like a boss and end the fight in a submission that’s more likely to be found on the playground than NAGA.

Enter the MiddleEasy network Anderson Silva Create-A-Technique contest. Teach your peers your own technique for a chance to win a free copy of Anderson Silva’s MMA Instructional Manual and a Magic Beanie thrown in for good measure.
