    The Gracie instructional books aren't bad, but I think video definitely works better.

    Jiu-Jitsu University Saulo Ribeiro, Kevin Howell. I think John Danaher was the technical editor too. Very good fundamentals.

    I just got Jiu-Jitsu University and so far it's been a good read, seems like every time I talk about being a newb white belt with anyone at my academy they always seem to be quoting the book indirectly. Seems like the go-to book along with Mastering JuJitsu.

    I think you should be all set for a minute with that Saulo book. Otherwise, you might check out the Andre Galvao book that just came out -- "Drill to Win" -- since it's all about movement in jiu-jitsu.

    By the way, have fun training. Don't worry too much about what you don't know: it's an endless road, and that's the beauty of it.
