Cheers for insights gents. Interestingly that's stuff I've been taught in Judo, just I've always thought of it as just controlling your opponent properly.
Anyway probably best left or a different thread.
You mean BJJ isn't Brazilian Judo?:ExcitedTroll:
Ive actually tried this online training program. at first it was something very interesting and some of it seemed pretty effective.
Then i started training under my Sifu now that holds multiple black belts and fought full contact back in PKL. As one can imagine, i didnt fair as well as i thought i would when it came to ground fighting. the nice thing about the online program is that it teaches you basic techniques so that if you do decide to really get involved, you already have your feet wet so to speak. The downside is that the online program doesnt teach you how to be loose, keep your head down, basic ground fighting principles.
Anyone else watch the Blue Belt stripe 1 course, lesson 1 video? It explains how the GU program plans on transitioning from instruction to sparring, and they call it "rapid mastery drills".
Also, should I include discussion about the Gracie "Women Empowered" program here or ask for a new thread?

The idea that a person with the first level of promotion in a martial art is expected to be able to defeat someone with no experience in the art also kinda makes sense.
For example, if I wanted to learn to play a song on guitar, I wouldn't just read the chord changes and music notations, then try to play the full song at full speed. I would work on the song section by section, getting the fingerings, strumming, and rhythm correct, then work my way up to play that section at regular speed, then work on the other sections.
