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
If you're for real about this, go with Best Judo.
Seriously though, seek instruction under a qualified coach.
BTW, I don't actually endorse that book, I looked at it at a bookstore and nearly puked. It shows the hidden (are horribly done) grappling moves within the TKD forms.
Best Judo FTW

the path to black belt seems good. thanks. any better?
I have been looking at the Bas Rutte one. You can apparently downl**d it everywhere but you have to pay and ... my googlefu is weak. Where did you get yours?
Just quickly, there is an online book store called the Book Depository, google it, I don't know the actual address. Cheaper than Amazon in many cases (then again it might only be because of Australia's exchange rate with the UK), plus no delivery charge to anywhere in the world. Thought I would share.
I still wound recommend the path to black belt due to it including basic BJJ concepts, and highly basic throws. It also introduces you to grappling and has a mad amount of details.

Read this thread for the warning

If your main library is extensive enough, it would probably have a couple of books but then again it says your from belgium so there might not be much in your library
Matt Serra's Jiu Jitsu Basics videos are very good for breaking down basic techniques and showing how they link together.
Saulo Ribiero's videos are amazing for all levels. He is great at breaking down many areas of grappling into simple concepts that apply to many areas of the game at once. A lot of his techniques are too advanced for me, but I find there is always something that helps me out every time I watch his vids.
Mario Sperry's Vale Tudo videos have some very interesting ideas for grappling. Just beware of the short shorts.
Getting a good instructor is more important than these videos, though. Get to a good instructor and then the videos and book can become truly useful to you.
