Does anyone know of actual BJJ Curriculum workbook broken down by belt level? I know that BJJ can't be this rigid. But at the same time, I kind of would like to have a list of checkables or bare minimum concepts, drills, and techniques I should understand. I have written a grappling game plan, but that's more tailored to my game. I am looking more for something that is a list of general things related to the Martial Art of BJJ.

Ryron and Renner are doing a pretty good job of it.

How about Renzo and Royler's book. It presents the techniques for each level.

I have always wanted a set, uniform curriculum for BJJ. I always wonder if the technique I'm learning is equivalent to the technique others are learning or "how do I stack up" if I went to another school.

By combing the web and the purchase of DVD's I have found the blue belt techniques of the following:

Alliance
Royce Gracie
Royler Gracie
Rickson Gracie
Gracie Academy
Pedro Sauer
Roy Harris
Roy Dean
Wolfpack BJJ
Felipe "Zicro" Neto
Francisco Mansur

I am currently compiling all of the info into a spreadsheet, cross -referencing all the techniques, to comprise a master list of the basic skills a blue belt should have.

Chango,

That sounds awesome. When you finish let me know. If you need some help formatting it, I would be happy to help. When you finish it I would be willing to throw a little cash your way for your time and a copy :D

Sounds interesting. Robson Moura has curriculum DVDs out too. BJJWeekly did a review of them all:

http://www.bjjweekly.com/bjj-gear-reviews/robson-moura-jiu-jitsu-requirements-series.html

Going further back, there are the old curriculum tapes from Joe Moreira and Carlson Jr, although that's more geared towards self defence.

I went ahead and picked up the University of Jiu Jitsu and Gracie DVD series. I have a friend who is just getting into Jiu Jitsu who is willing to go through them with me.

I am ashamed to admit this, I own this book and never really bothered looking through it. I went ahead and picked up the Gracie DVD series, Saulos book, and I have the Royler and Renzo book. I might pickup the Robson series later so that I have NU requirements met.

I am working on one.  

I am 100% serious, and I haven't yet decided if I will release it to the general public.  

Because we are under Mr. Roy Harris, we have a very set curriculum from white to blue (and truth be told, I have added more structure to it in order to break it down easily in my white belt classes).  After a discussion with Mr. Harris earlier this year, I am working hard on developing a full curriculum that will guide students carefully from blue to black.  He gave it his blessing and encouragement.

The key thing is to have a well rounded curriculum that is not strictly sport based. It must also include self defense and Vale-Tudo techniques which a lot of schools don't include in their curriculum.

I picked up the Gracie series and plan on doing the course and getting certified via video. I think it would be something neat to have and want to learn those self defense moves. I have used some of the ones taught by Royler and Renzo before.

This was pricey before (not sure how much now) but it is definitely a good resource. My buddy bought it a while back and I skimmed through the first workbooks it looks pretty sport focused from what I saw but it seemed decent.

It's nice that the dvds go along with it.
