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 app, 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.
