This will be the first product endorsement on the BJJ-ASIA but prob not the last.
A Japanese publication called BJJ-Spirits is releasing it's 4th edition with bonus DVD. This particular issue will contain a report, black-belt superfights and best-moves from the recent Cope De Hong Kong 2 tournament. So for those who didn't make it or those that want to see if their submission made it to the cut, get your copy. So far the easiest source would be Amazon JP.
Each issue is a collection of interviews, reports, tutorials on BJJ/Grappling but of course, it's all in Japanese. The people featured range from Japanese BJJ/Grappling/MMA celebs to the Brazilian and American names we've come to recognize in the sport. If anything, it shows that the scene in Southeast Asia is growing with definite recognition outside the area.
