Development in skill
I was wondering how many people take the time to drill all thier submissions, sweeps, positioning at home, or when you have free time.
Of course, as you know, with constant practise and drilling, techniques become instilled in the brain, and it is what is known a "muscle memory".
Now with BJJ, you can take your time on the ground, and think about what your next move will be, but do you think under the influence of adrenalin and tension that you would be able to pull techniques off as easily, or as quickly then when you rolled with your sparring patner.

Most of the drills my instructor has us work on in class require some kind of resistance from a partner. Things I practice when no partner is available include ukemi and shrimp drills, and it seems that practicing these skills (muscle memory wise) has helped my game. I've read that there are certain takedowns you can practice (against trees and stuff), that can really help, but I've never tried them. I've never tried grappling dummies either, though I would like to know more about them.
Are they worth a crap?

Grappling dummies are gay. Get a real, resisting person to drill with.

I have started working my double leg takedowns with a heavy bag. I make sure it is hanging low enough so the bottom of the bag is below my knees.
I can work set ups, level change, penetration step and collecting the knees at my own speed and still feel the impact so I know if I driving forward enough. I have been doing this for about a week and it has let me get a couple of hundred practice shots in.
I have been hesitant about going for shots when rolling and I'll find out tomorrow if this helps. If nothing else I have noticed my level change and step are a lot smoother.

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
