BJJ is really subjective to the qualifications of each instructor.
    the black belt guy at my school has move series, like

    Guard Passes (I think he has 10 ish. But I've only seen 1-5)
    Sweeps
    Collar chokes
    Back mount and crossed leg ankle locks
    Mount submissions
    ex....

    He just has use do them everyday, both sides, if you don't know them then you learn them, it works.

    also could someone slap a purple belt (or brown or black what ever you maybe) and an instructor tag on him

    The gracie combatives really is the core stuff, broken down technically, and sequenced in a progressive way. My training partner recently had his first MMA fight and he used these techniques from the programme to win

    - Closing the distance on an aggressive opponent
    - Rear takedown
    (admittedly there was a lockdown half guard pass next)
    - Maintaining the mount (but just for a couple of seconds)
    - Taking the back & mata leao

    One of our blue belts was recently attacked outside a club. He used

    - Slipping the haymaker
    - Rear takedown
    - Maintaining the mount
    - KO (this ones not in the programme!)

    The point is there's no rocket science or fancy stuff, just practical stuff that deals with most scenarios whilst not relying on a gi/soft mats/non-striking opponent.

    Evan Tanner would have something to say about that if he hadn't died in a desert.

    I'll say this much. In 1997 I recieved a blue belt while under the direct (albeit brief) instruction of Helio Gracie. While I've always been proud of that, I feel more prepared to handle a street fight against the average guy than I did when I was awarded that blue belt and I attribute that directly to the Gracie University videos. There is a difference between winning against other bjj guys and winning a fight and I'm convinced that Ryron and Rener have quantified it.

    is this that thing they have commercials for on spike tv? it has like some street setting and then a altercation occurs between two guys and suddenly it gets all extreme and slomo and one guy picks the other guy up and slams him on the concrete?? except its not concrete, its mats painted grey or something.

    looks extreme!

    This is the program advertised on spike. Regardless of how it's advertised, the program is good, solid technique oriented self defense. Discount it at your own loss.

    Because unlike the people on the street the BJJ guys know how to fight, many of them also take striking arts, look at my style field, (ignore the pirate jitsu, its a joke)

    You're going to have to elaborate on that. You either haven't read my post properly or you need to be clearer. You're not making any sense.

    The dvd series is good. Very technical and probably the most professional I have seen. A friend loaned me one and they do a great job breaking things down and explaining.

    The test by video stuff is just bullshit. That is the issue.
