When Does Actual BJJ Start?

Does it start when we slap hands and grab sleeves? Does it on the street start when they grab my collar or throw a punch?

I think BJJ starts as soon as conflict arises. Before either one touches you and things are elevating, how you try to resolve the situation, how you calculate all the different paths things can take, your stance, where you hold your hands, if you are backing up, if you are protecting yourself, if you are aware of your limbs and their limbs, if you are aware of your space and surroundings, if you are ready to clinch and recognize when that distance emerges.

BJJ starts as soon as their is conflict.
