The way to stretch is to do joint rotations first, then warm up progressively, then stretch. It's how almost all high level sports people do it.
Does it for us **flex**
How do you warm up in sub 0 degree weather? Tried it this morning and I couldn't. After 50 mins hard rolling the only moisture on me was a damp forehead.

So the Allotted running that you done, was that not serious running? or did you just not really do it?
Also , there is far more to BJJ fitness than Running, which is probably why an instructor will use a different warm up, Explosive power techniques and sprints are better than just running!
An instructor will base the warm up and techniques around the needs of a class and it sounds like thats what was needed.
I wear a lot of layers to start...

Jog for a bit, side step, shoulder rotations, hip rotations, rolling over my shoulders.
Get warm enough to take off hoody, t-shirt and socks (both pairs).
Continue as normal from there but make sure I'm always active, no slow drilling.

Good advice, a few months ago I thought that I had found the perfect venue as I happily converted a barn. Now winter has come and its bloody freezing. You live and learn!
Have you looked into getting some sort of heating in there, or would it be pointless given the probable lack of insulation?
