Interactive BJJ White Belt Curriculum

The great thing about the maps that I’ve been creating is that they provide an easy-to-follow visual of the techniques and positions covered.  For most this is quicker to review and easier to assimilate than text notes.  You’re also able to get a birds-eye view of how everything is connected and (hopefully) improve your understanding those intricacies.
The downside is that without the source material (DVD, book, magazine, etc) they’re usefulness is greatly limited.  Don’t get me wrong, they’re cool to look at but how much are you really getting out of it.  So what can be done about that?
You could buy every instructional video, magazine and book that I map out.  You could even rent them from MMA Vault, but the costs still add up.  Luckily we have access to the interwebz and specifically to YouTube.
Below is an interactive map that I’ve created by using the suggested white belt to blue belt curriculum from Alliance BJJ (there are a lot of them out there, this is the one I was looking at most recently) and filled it in with techniques that I was familiar with and felt confident that I could find on demonstrated YouTube by a quality instructor.
Huge thanks to BJJ Legends for hosting the interactive map!

I’ve used the following instructors for technique:
Jeremy ArelBio, School and YouTube.  All the BJJ techniques are taken from Jeremy’s excellent YouTube page.  Please be sure to check Jeremy’s pages out and support him.  He’s provided a huge amount of great content over the last few years for free.
Ken PrimolaWebsite and YouTube.  The wrestling techniques were taken from Ken’s YouTube page.
Stephan KestingWebsite and YouTube.  I use Stephan’s stuff whenever possible, in this case an example of a standing headlock escape.  He’s also been a huge supporter of BJJ with his free content and webpages.
Roy DeanWebsite and YouTube.  The escape from a headlock on the ground is demonstrated by Roy.
Pedro SauerWebsite and YouTube.  The standing guillotine escape is demonstrated by Prof Sauer on Jeff Curran.
Disclaimers:
1.  I did not demonstrate any of these techniques.  All the YouTubes are from respected BJJ Blackbelts that I have no relationship with other than a few emails to Stephan and Jeremy.
2.  I did not write the curriculum and I am in no way, shape, or form associated with Alliance BJJ.
My Final Request:
Please check out my Facebook page and “Like” it.  I will be using Facebook for a few contests in the near future.

  2. Nice! Would only add punch block series to guard section…you need basics of how to defend punches from guard position.

    • A lot of schools have the self-defence techniques in there but Alliance didn’t for some reason.
