I don't talk to my partners when I roll. It's really disrespectful, in my opinion, to coach someone when you're rolling with them, unless they're really new. And even then, I just take it easy and let the coach do the coaching.

Some people take it seriously, but most BJJ schools don't care. Still, until I get up to brown or black belt level, I'm going to leave it alone and save that stuff for when I'm just demonstrating techniques.

Also, I generally try and focus on what I'm doing, just because that's what sparring is about, at my level of jiu-jitsu.
