Ratings and Reviews

Menu problems


The Content is great and very thorough as usual. Great stuff Roy! I finally am starting to really understand BJJ in a comprehensive way as opposed to a broken up chunky way. I knew I needed that understanding but now I have content to go with the theory.

The App itself has a defect in that the menus don't go anywhere but the very beginning of the app. When you click on "top game" it goes to the welcome. if you click "bottom game" it still goes to the welcome etc... The analysis portions go to their videos because they are different altogether, so no problem there.

Get this minor problem fixed and we have a 5 star app.

I know it goes against what I just said but if techniques were on some kind of sub-menu it would be very helpful when drilling a particular part of the flow. I know it is a philosophy conflict at Brown belt as we are no longer learning "moves" but thought centers and categories as at the purple but its still nice to not be lost looking for that killer move to fix your flow without having to watch the whole 1 hr and 21 mins every time :)

I know a lot of techniques, but the key that is missing in my game is stringing together techniques. After a few days of studying these techniques a brown belt told me I exhibited great control all the way through our roll. Also, the part about pressure is invaluable. One of my sparring partners grunted loudly both times when I tried the techniques Dean presented in this app.

Just get it!


If your a fan of RDA, then your used to the thoughtfulness and superb execution of professor Dean's perspective of the gentle art! This is a must. Every shot and lesson is geared towards a purpose. I wish more BJJ instructional were like this one. You will add something to your game after one viewing...
