    What I am looking for is something I can show to the beginner white belts so they can use it while rolling against blue/purple belts. The closest thing in your list to that is "half guard basics". But then again, if they try getting underhook as you suggest they will just get an armbar on that far arm.

    What I typically see in BJJ is that beginners are taught how to attack before they taught how to defend (if they taught at all). They try attacking from unprepared positions and are becoming an easy target for the higher belts.

    One example that I show to beginners is "embryo defense". Elbows to the chest, knees around elbows, shoulders up, all rolled into a tight ball. Then I move them around from side to side, into turtle, back take to let them feel that they are secure as long as they stay in that position. Next I show them how they can open up to get advantage from the bottom position. E.g. how to create good base with legs and turn to the shoulder in side control while still staying safe. I set their goal in rolling as not getting tired and not getting tapped instead of trying to tap a purple belt.

    Once I show that to them I see tremendous difference in they rolling. They still do attack, but they no longer attack from bad positions. Once their attack fails they retreat and stay calm waiting for another opportunity and gaining position advantage inch by inch.

    These are things I am trying to find. Basic positioning, basic choke/armbar defense, breathing, etc.

    Totally makes sense. Thanks for the ideas.

    Follow up question: is the guard maintenance tutorial along those lines?

    I could definitely do more like this.

    Thanks man. Your videos are one of a handful that I go to on Youtube. They're succinct, to the point but thorough and enough repetition for me to follow and learn enough to go try the technique in class. Just add me to what I'm sure is a large number of people who really benefit from your efforts.

    Let's say we show these drills to a beginner and he does it 2-3 times. Should we see an immediate improvement in his grappling skills? What I am looking for are educational videos/materials to move beginner from 'unconsciously incompetent' to 'consciously incompetent' state.

    I have nothing against drills. To get to blue/purple belt level one needs to develop specific muscles and reflexes. Drills and random technique practicing may seem stupid but they do develop this aspect.

    OK, gotcha. I think you're interested in much more conceptual videos for now, with an idea exemplified by maybe one or two techniques. Does that sound right?

    Also, does anyone else feel ripped off that we now have to push three buttons (and wait for the ensuing items to load) in order to quote someone?

    I believe so. Something as simple as taking a fresh boxer and tell him to always keep his chin down, shoulder and and hands up.

    There is [REPLY] button for lazy people. It does full quote of one post.
