I have just watched the Roy Dean Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blue Belt Requirement DVD. Firstly I recommend that every martial artist buys it. Even BJJ guys past blue belt as there will be something that can be picked up and added to ones repertoire. Roy Dean shows clearly and describes in a way that everyone should understand, the basic fundamentals which is needed in order to gain a blue belt from his academy and to excel in the art of BJJ.
The beauty about Roy Deans system of grappling is that he implements it in the way it was intended to be. Because his technique is second to none and is a true professional, there is not a great need for him to use too much actual brute strength and this is proven by watching some of his videos. His level of calmness when sparring/rolling and the smooth transactions he uses from technique to technique is truly inspiring to watch and not only that but his students portray a level of excellence which is rare in most schools which shows the effectiveness of his teachings.
The techniques, pointers and tips which he recommends can not only be applied in a BJJ environment but in all grappling styles.
After training several years in Judo myself and having trained with people from other grappling styles I consider myself to be familiar with most grappling situations, however, there are still tips in this double DVD set which are new to me and which I look forward to implementing in my own training.
If you are looking to excel in BJJ, this DVD should definitely be part of your collection. Purchase it, watch it over and over again and try the content out during your own training.
