    First day BJJ class?

    Hypothetical situation, you are put in front of like 5 people who know absolutely 0 about BJJ. It is your job to instruct them in their first BJJ class ever. What would you go over with them on that first day?

    ^This. Probably more conceptual stuff than actual technical stuff. If it had to be technical stuff, probably the hip bump and oompah. Maybe the armbar so they've got something to try for when I make them live roll at the end of class. Depends how long this hypothetical classtime is.
