Ouch, this video makes me sad! No, JJ doesn't have to look like this. If they don't train anything else and you're not having fun with it...well, I wouldn't go again.

I think the sequence he's describing may just be blocking, overhooking, and then throwing with osotogari.
We did stuff like this a fair amount in my old BJJ club; it was a decent enough way to introduce basic takedowns/etc to noobs.The fool thinks himself immortal,
If he hold back from battle;
But old age will grant him no truce,
Even if spears spare him.

I also know the 'walk around' movements he's talking about. Firstly they should only be done for a straight punch (not a jab though because if they're not committed you'll never get round). And secondly would never teach it to e beginner as the footwork and timing are complex at best and it's hard enough to get n00bs to block properly to begin with.
* sorry, the beers are clouding my transliteration. The move I was describing finishes with an o-ouchi-gari. The overhook to o-soto-gari is taught later.

(All in my not-particularly humble opinion, of course)
