Brazilian Jiu Jitsu: Purple Belt Requirements

Roy Dean Academy
The rank of purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is the gateway to the advanced game. It cannot be defined by a list of techniques, but instead requires a combination of skills.

In "Purple Belt Requirements," Roy Dean outlines his skill requirements for the rank, and gives viewers a template for the “game” of BJJ, which they can then change and personalize.

Submissions and strategies from the mount, side mount, guard and back positions are covered, as well as lower body submissions and guard passing. Sparring footage, rank demonstrations, and guidelines for growth on your BJJ journey are also included.

“Purple Belt Requirements is a new kind of instructional. Almost every other instructional is a long compilation of techniques, sometimes (but not always) arranged in some kind of structure, with the instructor methodically working their way through the details. In his new offering, Roy Dean takes a conceptual approach instead, where the techniques fit into an overall philosophy for purple belt, the most important element of which is the need to learn how to combine techniques into a flowing sequence..”

“In the end, this dvd is about the “next thing”. Flowing to the next move with misdirection and momentum, being aware of what options present themselves before they appear. When I started bjj, it was like magic and I wanted to know what was behind the curtain. This dvd begins to shine a light on the elements that make bjj so special.”
