    Ok, im 34 years old, knees still working fine though... thing is, im kind of tired of sitting on my ass every single roll, I do it always... when I face a lower belt, I sit so I give the guy chance to work on his pass, if I face a higer belt, I sit because its disrespectful to stand (I hate knee wrestling) if he doesnt allow me (some times I get to practice my passing) if im the bigger guy, I sit because I dont want to "smash" and if Im the lighter one, I sit anyways because in a realistic situation, I would be on my ass probably... but now I want to learn how to wrestle, we might be moving to another bigger gym, so starting standing will be possible now, I want to start incorporating some basic wrestling, sadly, there is NONE available in my country... I want to at least be able to handle myself on my feet, its strictly for no gi.

    so basically, I figured if I can learn bjj online to a certain degree, why not wrestling? take in mind that im not going to be facing no ncaa wrestling, highschool wrestler or any type of wrestler in my country, may be some judo guy, but hardly.... I know I will suck balls, but some is better than nothing. Basics on stance balance hand fighting etc etc plus a good double, single and any other very basic stuff is all im looking to learn...

    So any suggestion of what dvd could come handy will be more than appreciated....

    You have to drill it because it isnt like BJJ where you can kind of work your way through positions on the fly. Takedowns are fast.

    That being said, takedowns are way easier to learn from video than BJJ, simply because you can use way more athleticism to get from point A to point B with a takedown. You cant just use speed and power to triangle someone when you dont really know triangles. You can do that with takedowns, so they are easier to complete at first when you dont know shit.

    Kolat's website is good. It's probably worth splurging for the pay service as you get access to the full library. There is a focus there on things like stance, motion, basic handfighting, and positioning during penetration that you don't necessarily get in the free videos. These things are much more important than random moves.

    Flowrestling has an excellent collection of videos but their technology sucks and they tend to be certain guys showing their specific collection of techniques, so it doesn't really have a focus on the basics.

    Also, check out this youtube channel (ignore the jiu jitsu videos): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCW_x7ulwPLYfPSJFfBw1P1w

    Is there any way you can find mat-time and training-partners to just drill and positional-spar techniques of your choosing? Because if you can do that, and you also have at-least basic grappling knowledge and access to youtube, you should be able to learn whatever you want...

    I would also start treating your pull more like a shot. Instead of pulling to a guard, pull to a single or a double. As soon as your ass hits, come up on a leg

    yes, Ive been talking to some of my friends and we will be putting time into drillling takedowns, I will also include at least 20 to 30 minutes of stand up in the class, and as soon as we move to a bigger gym, all rolls start on the feet...

    first, you must accept snapdown as the one true god, and his only begotten son, ankle pick.
