    Ah, I see. Thanks for the explanation. Well, I have another question, and I don't know if that fits in this particular thread. Since I started BJJ (and reading a bit about wrestling), I've seen the term takedown a lot. What exactly is a takedown? What's differenciates it from a throw? I sort of assume that a takedown is a throw with a transition to ground control and sumbmission. Would that be a correct assumption?

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Takedown is just the general term for something that brings them to the ground (other than pulling guard). A throw is a takedown. Double and single legs are takedowns. I don't think anyone is really making a conscious effort to differentiate between throws and takedowns -- that's just what people in BJJ tend to call them.

    At what point do you introduce positional hierarchy? I ask because I've been rolling a bit more recently and have met a number of people less experienced than myself. Based on the advice that I've been given -- on this site and elsewhere -- it's positional control that a newbie should really be after; consequently, I believe that giving them context ("It's better to move into this position, worse to move into this one") helps them orient themselves quite a bit.

    I haven't seen the positional hierachy formally taught at my school. I'm one of the guys who will grab white belts and explain it to them, or show them when they are doing their first lesson.

    A lot of times we'll just throw noobs into the fire and hope they pick things up along the way because we've got people training for fights constantly. But normally we use a basic position-flow drill to illustrate the heirarchy/flow of positions, which goes: top guard, top half guard, mount, side control, knee on belly, kesa, north south (with arm trapped), referee's position top turtle, and then top turtle with hooks in. At which point, the bottom guy rolls into top guard (compliantly, for the purposes of the drill), and then it goes from there with the roles reversed.

    Obviously you don't want to give up certian positions (like side control) once you've achieved them (unless you just can't do anything with it), but it helps our noobs get used to the fundamental positions and get it in there heads where they should be trying to get to from a bad position while avoiding submissions.

    Once they get it down, we'll drill either escaping from each inferior position to a superior one (back to guard at least), while the other guy works to improve or maintain a the superior position.
