Rorion I'm sure can hold the mount against damn near anyone who comes through the door, but the illustration would lose a lot of its impact if your top guy were to get bucked off.
    If you were to read the entire thread, you would find that de Lima has been doing this for years, so apparently it isn't that bad.

        I love your idea of starting out new guys on Reverse omoplatas and the crucifix Aesopian. For all that is sacred in this world, you should do this as an experiment, and watch his development closely to see if it makes a difference. If you did this, I think I would have to send you $50 bucks in the mail for being so awesome.

          At my very first class we did something very similar. I wasn't taught any submissions at all, but learned a lot of positioning.

          Being a BJJ noob it's good to know that I'm doing things that are fairly standard.

            Are you going to really ingrain "Position before Submission"?

              Are most BJJ schools taught like this? The school I just started at does seem to have alot of structure. Just seems like the guy throws some things out there and your kinda at the mercy of your training partner to give you the fine details. seems very hard for me to feel like i am doing anything but crappling. I really like the "SBGi Coaching model" and I learned more in 15mins reading your post then I have in 5 weeks I have been doing BJJ

                Depends on the instructor. Very few that I've encountered are this organized. My old school had beginners' nights for newbies to combat this sensation of jumping headfirst into a new sport. Old hands were welcome to come, but were more there to help teach and refine techniques (and get some roll time in) than they were to learn.

                Some instructors just start tossing things against the wall, hoping some of it will stick.

                  That's how things are run at my school as well. There is a "fundamentals" class that reviews a basic syllabus of things but normal classes are more eclectic (usually focusing on one area, e.g. gi chokes, for a week) without a lot of the formal background.

                  My instructor only recently started teaching full time and I think the pattern of classes is a carry-over from when he learned by doing a private once a month and then driving back to red neck central to teach his buddies.
