    BJJ names are gay:
    Flower guard sweep?
    The Brother Sister?
    Butterfly guard?
    The Gogoplata?

    Seriously. Fucking Gay.

    Rear Naked Choke was named well before BJJ fame.

    I dont agree with the whole 'white belts should just work on passing guard and forget about leglocks'.

    As a whitebelt, I can usually wreak havoc on other whites, and catch blues often with kneebars & achilles locks. Most of them have no idea whats coming, its a gaping hole in their game. I think its pretty dumb to just say, no! You cannot have this technique! Wait a few years! I say teach the technique, but make them understand the risks involved, dont just deny it outright. And I rarely get my back taken while kneebarring.

    I dont get it. Leglocks = awesome.

    Correct.

    It's all perfectly logical. You don't call armbars elbowbars, do you? Re: hooks guard, you have both hooks in, ergo, hooks guard. Butterfly guard, traditionally (according to our head instructor) has been both feet in the other guy's hips, gripping both his wrists with arms on the outside of your legs.

    Armbars=elbow lock

    Kneebars=kneelock=leglock

    Listen to your instructors. The purple belts are purple belts for a reason.
    Oh I understand that. The only reason I even contemplated a single leg to legbar transition was because our usual instructor (a black belt) recommended we get a couple of takedown-sub options. As it happens, my guard pass-side control game is alright so if I do get the takedown I'll just pass the guard.

    gzk,

    I think your black belt instructor would tell you the same as your purple belt instructor did. Don't expose your back in order to go after a low percentage submission (that you're not even allowed to apply in most tournaments!)

    Good points, all. I'll stow away the legbar in the back of my mind and concentrate on takedowns, guard passes and sweeps.
