In my karate class every now and then we would grapple and he would teach some very very basic BJJ.
I know nothing impressive, my grappling looks very very ugly.
But im sure it's alot better then not knowing any ground work at all. I mean hey, at the very least, i can sprawl and get back up against other sloppy grappling.
So anyway, so i can have a little extra in class when doing some grappling, does anyone have any web links to sites that have great info on techniques and escapes and what not on grappling?

Back when I was at a karate McDojo they would teach shitty grappling at odd intervals. If your instructor is showing you any "BJJ", even the basics, what is his rank and where did he learn it?

I recommend books. Brazilian JiuJitsu Technique and Theory, Eddie Bravos Book, or Submission Grappling (Royce). If you don't feel like shelling out dough, bjj.org is just fine for newbies, although if you are serious about learning it, I'd say crosstrain if you are comfortable enough with your karate.
And yes, Shuma's point should be well taken, if they don't know it too well, they really shouldn't be teaching it, because it will put bad habits in students that may end up getting them hurt either in practice or in a fight.

just www.bjj.org alone seems to be awsome.

As someone who possessed the deadly crapple...I'd heartily endorse this suggestion. Don't bother. You will pick up too many bad habits from teaching yourself via books, websites, etc without a solid base to start with and a legitimate grappling instructor to oversee your training.
Of all the stuff I ever learned, I'd say I only learned two or three things correctly and those were on the rare opportunities I had the chance to train with competent fighters/grapplers. It is difficult to unlearn bad habits. Don't let the same mistake happen to you...just my 2 cents.

Learning off the internet>Not learning at all
It's definitely far better to find a better instructor, but in the mean time, there's no harm looking on the internet.
