Filming Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Cross Country

Budding filmmaker here, very budding.

So I will be traveling the country filming techniques for BJJ and have no idea what equipment I will need.

Everything will be inside different dojos, martial arts studios. I will need to film maestros from all angles without them moving. Film them from the front, then the same maneuver from the back or side, etc. Close-ups, far away.

What lighting equipment will be needed?
What suggestions do you have for cameras? I'm a novice, but still want a good piece of equipment that I can use and expand on.

Also, I need an education. I'm not filming movies here, just martial arts. Are there any online video schools that would be sufficient for my purposes? Obviously I don't need to study too much for this limited production.
