    No-Gi BJJ curriculum

    Does anyone know if there are books or dvds that have an actual curriculum for No-Gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I have a lot of no-gi BJJ dvds and books that have great techniques but no actual curriculum. Please let me know.

    Erik Paulson's CSW curriculum: http://erikpaulson.com/csw-student-5-dvd-set-169-95/

    I train at a CSW school, but I've never watched the DVDs. The CSW grappling curriculum is a good blend of high-percentage moves from wrestling, judo, and no-gi BJJ.

    Go to a school that specializes in No-Gi BJJ rank up to at leaset purple belt then ask your instructor if you can start teaching on your own.

    Some of the 10th planet DVDs and books have a decently laid out curriculum, and Roy Dean's No-gi essentials is pretty well thought of as far as I know, although I don't know exactly what it is you want to get out of a curriculum so it's a little tough to give precise advice.

    Thanks Twolf, thats exactly what I was looking for! I wish more grappling dvds had a level or belt system like Erik Paulsons.

    Hi Iainkelt,

    I love everything from 10th planet. I have all of Eddie's books and dvds. I was trying to find something that had belt requirements as a reference.

    I like Pablo Popovitch's nogi dvd series, you could also check out Marcelo Garcia in Action he has an extensive nogi section. As well as both of them actually have **** loads of competition experience/titles in nogi.

    Ask your instructor. Unless you are thinking you are going to "fill in the blanks" and do your own thing. A schools curriculum is of no use to anyone on the outside. Do you train Gi somewhere? Or No-Gi? Since you asked.

    Ryan Hall's Fifty/50 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu DVDs (The Guard, the Triangle) are good.
    Especially in combination with the 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu stuff, but all these DVDs are just tools to help your game evolve IF you train with a BJJ instructor that has no-gi classes.

    The problem with that is that rank advancement in many grappling systems (especially many BJJ schools) is based not on a list of techniques to memorize, but on performance on the mat. At higher levels (purple and above), different grapplers in the same school will have different grappling styles with different subsets of techniques.

    Paulson's curriculum through level 5 is pretty representative of what you would expect a high blue belt or purple belt to know in BJJ, minus the gi techniques.
