Welcome to the complete blue belt mastercourse.
This is the definitive guide, used by tens of thousands of people world-wide to level up from white to blue belt.
If you're ready to take your game to the next level, I can help you.
READY TO LEVEL UP?
For many, the process of earning a blue belt can be mysterious. What techniques do you need to know? What should you focus on? How do you know whether you’re making progress?
What you need is a guide. A mentor—someone that knows the game inside and out. Someone that can teach you not just techniques, but a blueprint for getting to blue belt.
That's where I come in.
My name is Roy Dean. I'm a 4th-degree blackbelt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I've competed and won at the highest levels, and my students have gone even farther, winning gold medals at both national and international competitions.
I'm also highly sought after instructor, with a gift for communicating the art.
I guarantee that Blue Belt Requirements will not only unlock the keys to earning your blue, it will also provide you with the effectiveness expected of one.
I'm so confident you'll be ready for the rank that I offer a 100% money-back guarantee.
Knowing how to safely break your fall when thrown or taken down is an underrated skill in martial arts. I consider "ukemi" to be a bedrock skill.
Great movement is the essence of effective Jiu Jitsu. Do you want to be great at Jiu Jitsu? It starts with learning how to move properly.

Knowing how to escape headlocks is a critically important skill, not only on the mat, but for self-defense.
I'll teach you the classic arm attacks from the signature position in BJJ, the guard.
You need to know the classic chokes from guard. I'll teach them to you.

You have to know leglocks in order to be well rounded. I'll teach you the straight ankle lock, the knee bar, and the heelhook.

The truth is it takes a lot of work to get good at Jiu-Jitsu.
The art will reward your effort, but it starts with desire. You have to want it.
If you have the desire, then I can help take you to the next stage. I have the knowledge, insight, and experience to save you many steps on the long road to mastery.
The willingness to do the work is half of what you need. The other half is a system that helps you understand the game from the top down.
That's where I come in. I've taught thousands of people just like you over the past 20+ years. I've got an excellent track record .
I've produced many world-class practitioners, and I've inspired a generation of martial artists.
I can do the same for you.

"The production value with every Roy Dean video is outstanding. Clear and concise."
"Roy dean shows the blue belt techniques in a smooth and elegant way. He teaches techniques in groups of similar techniques like takedowns armlocks etc which makes it easy to concentrate in one group of techniques at the time."
"Excellent walk through and execution. Videography and knowledge was great. Final step in preparing for the blue belt."
"As you would expect from a Roy Dean video the production quality is excellent and the instruction is clear, concise and dense."
"Great product as always from Roy Dean."
"Over 70 foundational moves are shown in detail which have already helped advance my knowledge and understanding. As a white belt there is a lot to chew on here but no doubt these videos will be watched numerous times along my bjj journey."
"It is amazing, I have finished watching the whole video and I'm going to watch it again to reinforce all the techniques plus any details I may have missed."
"I truly cannot express how much your insights have helped my game and enjoyment of jiu jitsu. This has translated to a deeper understanding for myself for BJJ as an art as well as an martial endeavor."
It's always nice when students send you a picture of their recent promotion:
"Watched Blue Belt Requirements 100 times.
Thank you Roy"
DON'T SUFFER FOR THE KNOWLEDGE
If you've watched Jiu-Jitsu instructionals, you know that sometimes the instructors spend too much time explaining each technique.
A typical 90-minute course might only contain 12 to 15 techniques because the instructor talks so much. I call it suffering for knowledge.
I've been through that, so I've intentionally made courses differently. I keep my instruction focused on the key details so I can pack a ton of material into every lesson.
I'm teaching you the game of jiu jitsu, not just the moves. How do I do it? By organizing techniques into sequences, allowing you to create a map of movement options and their closely related neighbors.
This approach also lets you re-watch the course over and over again, finding new details and insights with every viewing.
When I released Blue Belt Requirements 1.0 back in 2007 it became an immediate bestseller.
Jiu Jitsu students were hungry for a course that offered a technical blueprint for how to get to blue belt. Nothing like that existed at the time so I created it.
Fifteen years later, students of the art are still hungry for resources that can help them demystify and accelerate their journey.
Blue Belt 2.0 is the successor course that revises and expands upon the original work, delivering more comprehensive and up-to-date information to help students achieve their goals.
For many students of the art, Blue Belt Requirements has been their go-to resource. Make it yours as well and see your knowledge and effectiveness accelerate.
