What is BJJ white belt first purpose?

I compare the BJJ white belt to the beginning of the life cycle, from birth to socialization. The white belt’s first purpose is ‘focus and train’. I believe white belts should be exposed to all the possible attacks, and moves that jiu-jitsu entails because I want them to become aware of how to do everything correctly to progress.

Do you agree that some moves are too advanced for BJJ white belt?

I disagree. I think that part of a white belt’s foundation is to know all the aspects of jiu-jitsu. Although the white belt cannot dive into the intricacies of every little thing but must start with proper fundamentals, knowledge of what those intricacies are is necessary for progress to happen. If you are going to be attacked by it, you might as well know it. It’s a matter of learning survival. White belts won’t be able to perfect any of it until they have learned to survive.
