About Global Training Report
Global Training Report
(GTR) began publication in 2000 as
a 100% no-agenda, no-spin, no-politics, free service to practitioners and
fans of Brazilian
jiu-jitsu, boxing, judo, wrestling, Muay Thai, and other reality-oriented martial arts and combat
and articles cover the period 2000 to 2021 (a few were written as early as 1993).

Publications. So far there are seven books in the series, with two more coming
