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 this 2 hour instructional, Roy Dean outlines his skill requirements for the rank, and gives viewers a template for the game of BJJ, which they can change and personalize.
Submission and strategies from the mount, sidemount, guard and back positions are covered, as well as lower body submissions and guard passing. Also included is sparring footage, rank demonstrations, and guidelines for growth on your BJJ journey.
"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."
