Editorial Reviews:

The key to effective Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a solid understanding of the fundamentals. In this instructional 2 DVD set, Roy Dean outlines his blue belt requirements for BJJ. Mount escapes, sidemount escapes, armlocks, chokes, leg locks, guard passes and takedowns are all clearly detailed. Also included are perspectives on the journey from white belt to black belt, a look at BJJ combinations, competition footage, and 3 dynamic blue belt demonstrations.

Summary: Excellent primer for starting BJJ
Comment: Roy Dean has done a commendable job with this set, and the production level of the video is unsurpassed. This is an excellent, excellent instructional set. The DVD covers many of the most common "basic" (do not confuse "basic" with "low-percentage") BJJ techniques one would learn at any BJJ Academy. Each technique is covered in a very basic step-by-step manner, with Roy explaining very clearly what is going on in the technique, then applied at a faster and more realistic speed from 4 different camera angles.
Perhaps the greatest thing about this set is that its focus is on helping students understand both the journey from white to blue belt, and getting them along the right path and mindset to learn BJJ. Roy deliberately includes the why of doing a technique a specific way (and includes some variants for good measure) instead of just stating "do it this way." A great set if you're either starting out in BJJ or want to brush up on your basics to make your ground game airtight.
For those interested, some of the techniques included in this set: Escapes (mount, sidemount, sweeps), Guard passing, Submissions (numerous Gi chokes, 4 different armlocks, and 4 leglocks), and takedowns. Also included are commentaries on BJJ, basic skillsets (where to grab, positioning, etc), along with some discussion on breakfalls and some video demonstrations.
I cannot rave highly enough about this set to anyone practicing BJJ, whether a novice white belt or higher belt levels looking to improve their technical game. I train at an American Top Team gym in South Florida, and say again this is an OUTSTANDING DVD set for ANY practitioner! Excellent job!

Summary: The Absolute BEST Set for the Fundamentals of BJJ!!!
Comment: I have been involved and trained Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 1993. I was interested in this set due to being down from a car accident and wanted to brush back up on the fundamentals. Hands down this is the BEST investment a student of BJJ can make! Roy covers the techniques in great detail, there is no filler or fluff..just GREAT techniques with excellent instructions. All techniques are HIGH PERCENTAGE. If you haven't seen Mr. Dean's Youtube videos of his students, I suggest you check them out asap..they will show you how technical and smooth his students are!

White belt through Black Belt, it is usually the Fundamental Techniques that win a match or a fight...this is why it's important for ANYONE to review and study this set and work to master these techniques..you WILL be a beast on the mat once you understand and are able to perform these moves. There are no short cuts, what makes a person good is his mastery of the fundamentals contained in this set.

If you've been sitting on the fence about this..JUMP OFF!!! You will NOT be disappointed in this set!

Summary: Outstanding!
Comment: Truly outstanding! I own numerous books and DVD's on BJJ and this is, by far, truly one of the best I've seen. Well done with great techniques, insight, and tips in a concise, simple, easy to follow and execute format. The Demonstrations on Disc 2 are an added bonus. After watching Roy Dean's BJJ Blue Belt requirements, I purchased his other products as well. I agree with an earlier reviewer, I can't wait for a series on Purple Belt Requirements.

Summary: The Roy Dean Experiment
Comment: I have had other BJJ dvds before. None inspired me as much as those put out by Roy Dean. So much so that I put together a BJJ experiment. With only using one teachers dvd how much skill can we acquire. I have corresponded with Mr. Dean and found him as encouraging and as inspiring as his products. I hope to visit him later this year. He really has produced a quality offering.
