Should BJJ strategy be practiced from the white belt?

Many BJJ students view the concept of strategy as a trait of professional athletes, or more advanced training partners. Nothing could be further from the truth. 
According to Rickson, strategy is one of the pillars of the study of BJJ, and it must be developed in the student from the first weeks of training. It's a matter of definition: while, to some, strategy consists of intricate tactical planning to beat a given opponent, Rickson sees it as the art of always having a plan B ready to go. That is, counting on a simpler, automatic, effective alternative for reacting -- with less force and more intelligence. 
Check out, in the following video, how Rickson develops a student's intelligence and strategy from their first few self-defense classes.
