It would be nice to put a name to one of the faces from Sunday, the beginners BJJ classes are a good place to start (I normally try and do the Saturday morning one) and it is quite a friendly club when you get to know people. I think the only classes not recommended for beginners are the Friday sparring / circuit training and Saturday afternoon invite only MMA sparring class, if you have any questions get in touch with Jason.

When you said a belly down armbar was it like the step over technique used at about 0.15 on the judo newaza compilation? If I manage to almost pull that off, even with nearly knocking myself out in the process I would be more than happy.
almost like that. go to about 4:20 of this video to see Aoki teach it:

I'm pretty good at this on the right side, but I never tried it with left handed grips. so when I went for it full speed for the first time in a match I got jammed up when I let go of the wrong grip to break my fall and went down head first. that was the closest to being knocked out I've ever been.
FACT- Eddie Bravo invented the triangle choke when he used it to tap out helio gracie at an ac/dc concert.
