I think that as you suggest, most people just learn "how do armbar" and end up coaching the same way.

Some very interesting responses from all, especailly from yourself, Coach Josh and Judoka_uk and also an excellent post on Judoka_uk's blog on transitioning.
Going back to my original post and my concerns that Newaza may be taught at my club indefinately with a 15 second limit on getting a pin/submission, I'm glad i'm not alone in thinking this is a bad idea and with me pushing the big 40, in regards to age, and having a wealth of other MA experiance i'm not shy about questioning the teaching methods of my instructors, althought being a lowly 5th kyu I will chose my words carefully.

Roughly speaking, every class goes warmup (including Ukemi), newaza technique, newaza randori, tachiwaza technique, randori. We do lots of rolling, usually 3-6 min rounds. And sometimes we just roll to warm-up, skipping our normal warm-up routine. If anything, we spend too much time doing newaza! lol ...For a Judo club, anyway.
