Roy Harris Promotes Online BJJ Students By Email Up To Brown Belt

Again one of those "yellow press" articles from the BJJEE


Bjj Eastern Europe - Roy Harris Promotes Online BJJ Students By Email Up To Brown Belt (http://www.bjjee.com/articles/roy-harris-promotes-online-bjj-students-by-email-up-to-brown -belt /)


Gracies started with ...
already present in other martial arts (I know WT 4)

Basically it doesn't matter, I've known Roy for 14 years and he doesn't show the crowd what he can really do anyway. :-) So whether it's DVD, book or test, that's for the crowd that he doesn't know and is there can I understand it too .......

Does that mean he is deliberately cheating on the masses who buy his DVD, etc. to make money?

No, it just shows what can be found on DVDs or Youtube anyway, but structures it better ......

But he doesn't show the things he shows his long-term students .......

By the way, his real exams sounded like this ...

Ok, understandable.


By the way, his real exams sounded like this ...

Still don't find it good. Brown Belt under Harris is now Brown Belt. If he makes a qualitative difference between online and personal exams, he shouldn't do it, otherwise it has an unpleasant commercial aftertaste and devalues ​​the "real" brownbelts. I thought he was so old school?

I think it's weird too and I wouldn't do it either. But is his decision, he has to know what he is doing .....

There have been rumors in American forums that Roy Harris is McDojo and sells belts and esoteric junk for good money. I also think I heard something from a German who he sold the black belt to. Allegedly at some point that was so uncomfortable that he gave the black belt back and preferred to wear his old brown belt again, which he got from someone else.

But who knows if there's really something to it and it's not just rumors. I would always be suspicious of a Roy Harris black belt and would double-examine it.

Roy Harris has no black belt in Germany and the only brown belt among him was me in 2008.

Roy Harris belt exams are brutal, they are not tough, they are brutal, some vomited afterwards .....

I started at Roy in 2002 when blue belt and Roy didn't give me a belt, but made me wait 2 years before I could take the purple belt exam, for which I didn't pay a cent, except for my jaw pain for a few days ... .....

August Wallen is e.g. a TOP Blackbelt under Roy Harris with good skills, just like Roy Dean or Jason Lambert who fought in the UFC.

Roy Harris is an extremely good teacher who has always had very high standards. In addition, his own skills in the BJJ are world class.

BUT the action with the online test is completely strange and not understandable for me either .......

Although I can guess why it happened like this, but that doesn't belong here .....

Here is his answer, still not understandable for me, but that's up to him .....

Bjj Eastern Europe - Roy Harris Statement On Promoting Online BJJ Students Up To Brown Belt (http://www.bjjee.com/bjj-news/roy-harris-statement-on-promoting-online-bjj-students-up-to -brown-belt /)

What he writes doesn't sound bad, at first it sounds more honest than
what I hear from LA ...

Maybe at some point you just have to break away from established training methods, just like from graduations.

The question where I agree with him is: who should forbid it, who cares, who is "that one"?

How was belt awarded in the past (70-80 years)? Were there stripes?
Do you still have to hold on to it?

Well, I don't read a correct answer there. More like an around ...

Yes, I use online schools too, but still wouldn't buy a belt for them. Of course, it's up to you to decide, but in my opinion it's more than questionable.

When the contents of my course are eventually revealed, the progression and evaluation will be obvious.

I think arguing about it for a long time doesn't make any sense either ...

We bled, sweated and cried for it and the exam lasted for hours, today 10 minutes is enough .....

Roy is and will be my teacher, but I can hardly understand the online thing ......

Does that only seem so arrogant to me, or do you also find that it is quite hard to write all the things mentioned below on your banner and to see yourself as an authoritative guide for all this?


1. Leg locks
2. Wrist locks
3. The Kimura finish
4. The Americana finish
5. Takedowns from the knees
6. BJJ over 40
7. A structured training curriculum
8. A structured belt ranking system
9. A progressive training method

He doesn't write that he invented it, but that over the years he has been criticized by BJJ "players" who have visited him for representing (to champion sth.) And teaching it as useful. Well, that's nothing new that on every topic you have people in class screaming "it doesn't work!", Brave that like "brownbelt per video test?" to expand.

Although I don't even think that's not possible. If you insist that the "test video" is recorded with a competent partner with a known graduation and has to cover certain content, then a competent trainer can already tell whether this is a fake or the level is more present.

A procedure could also be set up so that someone who gets such a belt has to prove within 3 years that he has started in sports BJJ tournaments or similar in the corresponding class and can show at least X successes against graduated people. Otherwise the graduation will be revoked. That would not necessarily be dishonest, and you can serve a market that is cultivated by certain other sizes via their names and marketing.

It is dishonest to condemn it with some, and with others because they are called Gracie to tolerate it.

I guess Roy Harris isn't one of those people who think that you have to "feel" some things.

If you insist that the "test video" is recorded with a competent partner with a known graduation and has to cover certain content, then a competent trainer can already tell whether this is a fake or the level is more present.

If you had to shoot the video with a competent and recognized partner then you should actually have a BJJ gym nearby.

Or do you let it fly in?
And if you have to fly someone in for your video exam, why not fly to Mr. Harris yourself?

Ask a question feel the answer, was Roy's slogan 14 years ago .....
He is very rational and analytical, but he has always wanted people to feel what he is doing and only those who have felt Roy understand how awesome his skills really are .....

As I said, Roy Harris is my teacher and will always be my most important teacher because I learned the basics from him, but I don't really find a really useful argument for his online test.

As I said, I can guess why it happened this way and I think it's a shame because he's a blatant martial artist who just gets in his own way with a lot of things (at least that's my opinion).

I think if Roy were just Roy and showing everything he can, he would have so much to do with giving seminars and recording new DVDs that he wouldn't need an online test.

But as I said, he has to know what he's doing and, to be fair, it has to be said that there are enough other questionable belt awards that don't necessarily take place online. So, it's best to do it like Helio, to protest you only wear dark blue ;-)

Online courses tick and get strong, that's how it works these days :)
Has the man ever denied a fight other than grappling?
For me personally, his grappling looks like someone who has never fought, and I think he's pretty confident for that ... people times change ... there used to be a lot of people at the start who were enthusiastic, but maybe not that good at all could fight;)

I agree. Even if Roy could fold me four times in 10 seconds, as long as people don't have bullet holes in their jackets, spinal fractures, and scars on my face and elsewhere, they don't know what fighting means at all. It's just a gimmick. Dragunov WKO UFC 10/10 times.

(the account was probably forgotten)

Roy Harris can fight, he's a fanatic with a knife and sword, did JKD under Paul Vunak, was Vice President of PFS, he's extremely talented and I'd rather have him by my side in a fight than any mundial champion .... BUT one has nothing to do with the other. As I said Harris is an exceptional talent, but that doesn't make belts any better either ......

Man, the guy is old (and built like a barrel).
He will have thought of this as a retirement plan.

sorry, you can say what you want and talk nicely how you want
but anyone who does something like that has lost my personal respect. Point!

I praise me rickson, who says that he would never teach bjj to anyone,
that he didn't shake hands with.

Yes, that will surely affect him very much.
