Dan, one of the greatest tools available to us in this day n age is the ease of access to information. YouTube is a invaluable asset IMO for one learning new techniques in any martial art. I've personally learned many things from ken primoa's YouTube videos; you only can spend so much time in training and only get exposed to so much. Go on YouTube and look up different submissions, takedowns, ten weeks, etc, then when you are in practice, try out some of the things you saw online. It really helps with creativity.
