    :0 that triangle is wicked! Never thought to set it up like that. Though that could be why I'm a white belt :D

    Kinda torn on whether I'll be going to JJM's seminar or a competition that are on the same day. But this is totally leaning me towards JJM...

    For all you kids spoiled by Ryan Hall DVDs, clips like these are how we used to have to learn BJJ from videos.

    I used to watch that video over and over when I first started, like most noobs I thought I needed to learn a million submissions before I even knew how to escape or sweep...lol.

    There was also an old Nogueira instructional I watched at the same time with similar styling..that showed maybe 5 or 6 moves...I can't locate it anywhere...It was before his guard for MMA or victory Belt stuff.

    Yeah I think the sarcastic nature of my first post was lost on people here.

    Really this instructional is not very good at all by our modern criteria. I mean it was good for its time so we remember it that way, but we are way past this stuff now.

    The techniques themselves are fine, but the overall instructional quality should just make you thankful that we have so much better ones now. Seriously this is just five seemingly random submissions shown with absolute bare bones explanation and then replayed a few times with some music in the background. Trying to learn from stuff this way is why a blue belt was such a big deal to us back then. It's just hard to get any better when you have to figure out everything yourself from scratch.

    This is just the instructional form of the old style flawed BJJ teaching method -- here's a move, here's something completely different, oh yeah here's one more, okay let's roll. I'm glad we've generally moved on.

    I would definitely go to a JJM seminar in lieu of almost any competition. He has a really unique take on BJJ, plus he developed his game back in the day before ideas disseminated so quickly, so a lot of his game is his own invention. I've seen stuff he does that to this day I've never seen anyone else do. Not that it's harder or better, but he does things in a very individualized way.
