    Great suggestion.

    In all seriousness, from the looks of things, you're pretty close to St Louis. Given a city of that size, you should be able to find a local BJJ or Boxing instructor who would travel. In fact, a quick Google shows that Rickson's got a Black Belt rep who teaches there.

    Get a Basic video set and practice the first two or three techniques as shown on the video for 12-20 reps. Then spar with your friends for like 25-30 minutes. Repeat with 2 more techniques the next time. Continue this practice every training session. If you are disciplined this will work until you can get out to take a class or two. Make the trek out to the class every 3 months (preferably more often, but take what you can get) or so and take some privates.

    Can't be helped, base gym doesn't have any better facilities. It's just friction, anyways.

    No he meant for falling. Dislocated joints from posting because you have no clue how to fall is not good.

    I don't know where to start. Wow. Just wow.

    I will give you a +1 mad props for doing takedowns and grappling on hardwood floors. Bwaahahahaha. Oh **** I almost **** myself laughing. Oh man. The guy with socks on hardwood floors - can he get any less traction?

    Here is a hint out of the kindness of my heart. The leg goes over the head BEFORE you try to extend the armbar.

    And I would be happy, again out of the kindness of my heart, to invite you to Cobra Kai in Las Vegas. Nellis AFB is only like 20 minutes away. Try to get some training, or a stopover there.

    ...because honestly...you need help. Bad.
