Nerd fact of the day,
It's spelled wrong, but, supposedly translating the English language is subjective, and there's no supposed way of spelling things, because, we have no "committee" to decide, rather that some random dude writing dictionaries that certain college's accept.

I was gonna say things but then JNP said the things before I could say the things.
Also OP, are your saddlebags really chapped because your instructor lost to one of the most dominant fighters of early MMA?

Just want to add a point here. Your brain doesn't just werk all the time at the same effectiveness. The more exhausted you are,the more physically stressed you are, then the less effective are your brains processing (?) abilities. Your ability to concentrate, and i would say your ability to learn, are definately impacted by how tired you are. When i was in the army they would run us into the ground and then sit us down for exam type testing as an exercise in using our brains while tired, (and there was always a noticeable difference between rested body and tired body results).
Where i've trained,the process for the MMA type classes was a reasonably light warmup/ stretch, (the advanced guys would sometimes lightly roll before class, with the belief that that was the best way to stretch/warmup the muscles you were going to be using). The class would then move onto instruction phase. Repping the move over and over, then correction and some common errors guys were making. Then some very restricted type of sparring for all, and then at the end,or after the main class the non-noobs would spar.

I don't mind a light warm up to you know warm up. What I fucking hate is in class conditioning. I can do the heavy conditioning on my own god damn time (not very likely to but hey if it where important to me I would do it). Let not forget to mention that typically the best way to condition yourself for doing something is simply to do it so if you spend more time rolling and less time running around in stupid circles your likely to see faster results.
My favorite way to warm up nice light technical rolling. **** all this running around in little circles and doing line drills.

High intensity solo exercises can and should be done solo, but partner work is something you can only do when someone else is there, so prioritize time accordingly. That's my approach anyway.
I have my own little garage gym/dojo with freeweights, a heavy bag and some mats. When a training partner stops by, though, we're either doing interactive drills or doing fit ins/other drills that utilize your partner as the apparatus (for example, we work entering and lifting with fireman's carry or single leg or whatever, lift them off the ground, and put them back). Since these are lifting a person though, they're not good as warm ups.

I don't think anyone seriously expects a brand new person in off the street to keep up with the folks who've been training regularly for months or longer.
My first day we had a ton of different crunches we did, 50 of each. So day 1 I probably did 20 of each, and I just kept working up til I was doing the full work out.
On shrimps and upa's specifically, those are the 2 most basic movements in bjj, most techniques are either started, ended, or otherwise utilize these movements or a variation of these movements, so it makes sense to drill them over and over.
That said, these days I skip the warm up, lol

Anyways, since your the boss.

No one wants to do this in New Zealand...... Only problem with that is he could troll me, make me pay for the flight and then not get on the plain.... And I don't trust his willingness here. I'll tell you what, let's make it NZ. I'm down, set it up. I'll figure out money some how. why the hell nz though, couldn't you live in Brazil or China or something, even Chicago would be better....

I only did Kyokushin for a month and half, and each and every class they worked my tubby ass so hard I was pretty sure my entire cardiovascular system was going to shoot right out my fucking neck and go on vacation to Thailand before having us move on to drills and sparring, and you know what? In that month and a half they completely reformed my Shorin-ryu doing ass to such a point that, when I joined Enshin, the ex-Kyokushin blackbelt thought I was lying when I claimed to not have any rank in Kyokushin.
I might just be an atypical case or a dumbass spouting anecdotal bullshit, but it seems that if I learn how to do something correctly when I can barely even stand up, it's significantly easier to do it right when I'm not half dead.

It's better to spar when you are tired, because you are more relaxed. It's when assholes go hog-wild and don't know WTF they are doing people get hurt. At least for beginners.
