Do the instructionals on there actually solve real jiu jitsu problems or is it just to see who can post the most complex absurdity

Oh they work.

 

I can now hit a flying berimbolo wrist lock on any 1st day student.

Depends on who you check I guess... I can't name anyone off of the top of my head but I've seen some good ones.

FWIW, I like the way you setup your instructionals, where you do a quick demo and then add explanations and details.

On IG, I like the ones where minimal explanation or talk is needed.

^Yes! It drives me crazy when they don't demo the technique first. It lets you know what the technique is beforehand so that you can decide if that's what you were looking for. It also gives you context so you know where the technique is headed as you hear the details explained. Sometimes, I'll be 5 minutes into a video and the person still hasn't completed the move once. I don't understand how it happens so rarely. 

Regarding Instagram, I think until recently there was a max video length of 30 or 45 seconds (it's one minute now, I believe). So not a lot of time to explain something or give details. I'm fine with a short and sweet video there. 

But with Instagram, you have the ability to upload multiple videos/photos per post. So you could have the demo as the first video, then swipe to see a short video on one of the details, swipe again for another video on a different detail, etc. It's an interesting format that I don't see many posters there experimenting with it.

I like the stuff on ig that's more like quick hacks and tips.

I was like you, but don't forget BJJ is also an "art" in addition to being used for self defense, sport, etc.  

 

I just keep telling myself that those guys are being artistic with the absurd berimbolo transitions, or NoGi guys finishing everything with a heel hook

yeah.. In this case, if it captures a detail that I notice, I like the way that it's just 15s replaying over and over automatically... It's like visually drilling in your mind.

I’m still wondering when someone’s going to release a video demonstrating how you get your opponent to lay on the mat like a dead fish while you execute a 37 step berimbolo, leg drag, mounted, heel hook, collar choke.

The satire posts are killin me though, because they're true.
Quality instagram bjj does seem kinda rare... just has some promise in watching unfamiliar transitions over and over.

Most of the Instagram Bjj videos I've seen are very good. There is a Carlson Gracie Black belt (Saporito) who post some excellent videos. JJ Machado post some good stuff. The Mendes brother also post some good stuff as well (although it is their style)

One of the guys that trained with us told me to take a look at Saporito's videos too.
