BJJ Hierarchy of Needs
We should focus our BJJ training first on our defences, before our escapes and our control before our submissions.
Why I Started Brazillian Jiu Jitsu

The Zero Stripe White Belt Restriction Defence
These rules aren't designed to limit your practice, but nurture your growth in this martial art. I trust they'll create a much safer, more sustainable Higher Jiu Jitsu. - Coach John Smallios

A split is about programming workouts to stress your body past its current equilibrium, to move you towards a specific goal.
The Primary Barbell Lifts
The main lifts are chosen because they use the most muscles over the longest range of motion.
