    Pick something better like these:

    YouTube - Pedro Sauer Move of the Month: August 2010
    He mentioned:

    - Posture (repeatedly!)
    - Base
    - Framing
    - Angle
    - Pressure

    Hallmarks of an excellent BJJ technique video in my opinion.

    Cain Prevost's videos are also excellent:

    http://caneprevost.wordpress.com/

    Ryan Hall always breaks down positions and transitions to the fundamentals:

    YouTube - Ryan Hall - The Triangle [DVD 2] - Closed Guard: Hip Bump Triangle BJJ

    Maybe this thread can be salvaged by posting examples of what we think are good instructionals.

    Yes, more examples please. I created a thread in the basic techniques forumn asking for this exact information after reading this thread.

    Quick note: I am not jnp. Not sure how he got mentioned since he hasn't posted in this thread.

    I am a big teddy bear with squishy innards and feelings.

    He is a slab of granite who feasts on the souls of the misguided posters in the technique fora.

    Now, let's not mention him again lest we raise him from his slumber. I hear that he dreams of wearing only tight green leggings so he can reenact the Nutcracker through improvised dance. He gets grumpy when disturbed.

    ^^^No.

    The thing is you are blaming the wrong part of that fail equation. Nothing will stop dumb shits from doing dumb ****. Convicting Youtube of grappling stupidity is the equivalent of suing gun companies for violence. Dumb ass whitebelts are going to do dumb ass whitebelt things.
    ^^^Yes.

    Gimmick collectors are a special subset of jits players. I've seen the equivalent in striking and wrasslin'. No doubt they exist in every sport. You're supposed to grow out of it when you find out that focusing on this stuff has made your game trash. Youtube, submissions 101, and Eddie Bravo are not helping the cause.
    ^^^ Yes.
    In other late breaking news: People on Youtube are Retarded.
    ^^^Yes.

    Is ari the guy who ran the site?

    Everyone has gimmicks. I love them. But trying to learn more gimmicks in place of fundamentals leads you to a dead end. Some people come face to face with that brick wall and try to learn a new gimmick for all of the places they get stuck. That's like trying to self medicate with opium because you're starting to feel like you just might have a heroin problem.

    Eventually, you have to work on tried and true basics. The stuff we were all trying to circumvent and be unique little flowers by avoiding with our gimmicks. I'm a flexible ************, and I went through a rubberguard faze that stunted the rest of my game. I still use my flexibility when it suits me because it's a nice natural advantage to have, but it's no substitute for real posture and defensive technique. Decent players will blow right through that ****.

    I thought he just went blue belt in a gi no? Ah...just read up. He was a blue under eddie coming in and then Eddie rolled with him and promoted him to purple based on knowledge, posture and his ability to teach. Not really denying that his videos had huge holes...got it

    For me...I think I am the noobiest grappling guy here and I thought those youtube vids were helpful. Let me tell you with absolute certainty...they are not! Every technique I used got my ass handed to me. I learned a valuable lesson: Stick with what the **** Coach is showing me and only drill that till I get it!!! Stop trying to pull off a standing DARCE choke, stop trying to pull off ninja chokes, side control and half guard...specially when they haven't even gone over half guard yet. Just drill the **** out of the 6 or 7 moves you have. Stop deluding yourself by thinking you're going to go to seminars or understand dvds. Drill, drill, drill, roll, roll roll....
