Editorial Reviews:

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Seminars: Year One delivers 2 BJJ black belt seminars on one disc in the inaugural year of the Roy Dean Academy.
The Alaska Seminar was a birthday celebration for Robert Grunder of Gracie Barra Alaska. The subject of this clinic was a high percentage submission combination, and includes full length sparring with seminar participants.
Summer 2007 is a tightly edited version of the morning seminar session in Bend, Oregon. Escapes, sidemount attacks, rear mount attacks, the armlock, triangle, and combinations into the triangle are shown.
Jimmy DaSilva showcases both technical ability and a fighter s heart in the Purple Belt Test. Praised on YouTube as BY FAR, the SINGLE BEST grappling video on the internet, it is globally regarded as an inspiring demonstration of the athleticism, technical depth, and fortitude necessary for the rank. Requirements included mount and sidemount escapes, headlock escapes, takedowns and throws, submissions, combinations, and sparring 5 minute rounds with 2 blue belts and 2 black belts.
In the Roy Harris Seminar, watch the 3rd degree black belt and impart his wisdom on maintaining open guard control, including specific places on how and where to push with your feet, knees, elbows, and hands. He also reveals counters to common guard passing scenarios posed by skilled opponents. With over 300 seminars taught globally, Mr. Harris effortlessly explains the techniques of BJJ and concepts that they rest upon.
Westside Submission takes you deep into the Southern California BJJ scene as Roy Dean enters Chris Brennans classic round robin tournament as a purple belt. The Westside Submission Championship is known for attracting intense competitors from a variety of disciplines, as there are no rank divisions, only weight classes. Enjoy 5 straight submissions set to music, including a spectacular flying triangle in a match that epitomizes technique vs. strength.
What Does Jiu Jitsu Look Like? is a BJJ commercial professionally shot in San Diego with Harris Academy members.

Summary: Excellent First Release
Comment: This outstanding production from Roy Dean is a great first release.

Roy Dean's Year One DVD gives an insight into his unique blend of Traditional Martial Arts aesthetic & community and the devastating effectiveness of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu training.

The seminars on the DVD are fantastic. Roy Dean's combination attacks from the guard position and Roy Harris' Open Guard control & passing counters could have each been their own DVD (though no quality is lost by placing them both on this disc).

Typically, when I watch a new grappling instructional, I look for one new idea that I can incorporate into my own training. From the Roy Harris segment alone, I picked up three "I need to use these" moves, and three more "I need to add these when I am ready" techniques...not to mention the new material I saw in Roy Dean's sections!

The extra features are great. The Purple Belt exam, tournament footage, and commercial all help build the great vibe that Roy Dean's teaching and school have. Pick up this DVD and see what his unique flow is all about!

Summary: This has everything!
Comment: Wow! This DVD is awesome. Better production quality than most every BJJ DVD on the market. It has good instruction as well as a little something to get just about anyone inspired. The Purple Belt test was truly great. It really shows just how much blood, sweat, and tears goes into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Honestly, if this video doesn't make you want to go out and join the nearest BJJ academy, nothing will. In addition to the inspiration, it is also a great tool for those wishing to extend their training to their own home. Do yourself a favor and pick this DVD up! It definitely will not let you down.
