    How about you work on not being submitted. That's a great place to start.

    From a long-ass time white belt to another white belt:

    When doing randori go actively for stuff. If you just hold back and defend that's exactly what you'll learn. In an active game you'll get tossed, countered and submitted a million times more, but you'll learn something in the process too.

    There is no losing in randori, unless you're one of those idiots who think it's a competition.
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    Leg locks.

    Force them. Even standing, just dive for them. Your coach will admire your novel take and promote you Quickly.

    Trust me, look up leg locks on youtube then just try them in randori and ne waza.
    If do right, no can defeat.

    Yah, those boring first few days of learning to roll and fall....they pay off in the end. Pay attention.

    Further to the excellent advice from 100xobm I would add the following.

    1. Arrive ten minutes after class starts. Warm up as loudly as you can, if you have an 80's style boombox, play Eye of the Tiger.

    2. When being shown a technique, be sure to let the instructor know you have already seen it on youtube. It works even better if you finish it with, "...and I submit my friends with it all the time when we do UFC". That kind of experience is appreciated and may help you catch the eye of the instructor for fast progression.

    3. In newaza, fire yourself up by rapidly slapping and punching yourself. It not only signals to your partner that you won't take any ****, but your instructor will know you are for real.

    4. Squirrel grip your partner while you make a "grrrrr" sound. When he yelps like a little bitch jump up and signal to the instructor that you submitted him. It works best if you yell, "CAN'T HANDLE MY KIMURA CAN YOU BITCH!?"

    5. Tell everyone you have extensive experience in other martial arts, make some up if need be. It will make them fear you and will also make it known you are only doing this as a supplement to your skillset. It also keeps you out of the gunning line.

    6. When anyone taps to a submission, be sure to hold it for a couple of seconds longer or, if you aren't a *****, crank it more. Do this to your instructor even if he let you try out the submission, in fact, especially if he let you try out the submission. It signifies that you are not one to be handed anything.

    Honest to God the other day when I was rolling with a new guy he said the following, "Yeah I learned some from spike TV, *I take mount* Oh no, just like in the game..."..../facepalm

    Don't say anything, shut up and listen. If you do that you'll be ok.
