Yeah, submissions 101 can be a bit hefty on advanced techniques. That is unless you know a specific technique and want to learn it. I go around YouTube and I take videos form here and there. A few Ken Primola videos are good (kenprimo) for picking up basics. Mario Sperry covers basics too.
My compilation of techniques and drills:
They're good to watch, but you get much better instruction being shown by an expert, who will go through finer details and perfecting techniques which you won't get watching DVD's.

My personal favourite books are Renzo's Mastering JiuJitsu (good on basic theory and gameplan) and the Ed Beneville ones for specific technique.
Failing that you could just go out and randomly pick fights with people you don't like the look of.

Hi, I reside in Hounslow and interested in training. I would like to know where can I train as a newbie in and around West London. Please, advise needed, thanks.
I said advanced as a lot of it is rubber guard based, and I'm not flexible enough to do that stuff! I haven't looked through them all to see whether or not they're wrong, but I'll take your word for it.

I think London Shootfighters is in West London now.
