    Any Gracie or Machado book is good, just keep on grappling and you'll get better.

    Until you've gotten the super basics down, books will only make you want to try shit you arent ready for.

    Keep at it and work hard, that will take you far.

    werd mat time is the most important at this phase, learn your positions and how to hold them and transition between them

    Build muscle. Honestly, if you're stronger and know a little you can usually win grappling.

    I was wondering if pulling (or at least trying to) pull off something from the JJ Machado’s 5 Favorite submissions video that Placebo posted would get you a reputation if you were a new student.

    "Yes, I are teh n00b."

    bang, submission.

    "Time for all the new students to fight the instructor."

    :noes:

    Yup, I tried ninja submissions my first couple times as well. I went in thinking maybe I knew a few things the people who had been training a while didn't know and I could catch them off guard.

    You know you're fucked when you attempt something and the guy you're rolling with names the video.

    Especially because there are so many intricacies that they don't utilize.
     
  14. Don't try to pull off fancy manuevers. You need to learn the first 40-50 moves which are very basic but if you master them you will become a very good grappler.

    What the hell?

    I've been training for 5 months and I don't think I know 40-50 moves and I wouldn't say they're very basic. A lot of the "basic" moves have prequisites that a lot of people forget. Like in the triangle. Some people don't bring the arm across, push their hips up and arn't sure what to do exactly with their hands.
