Roy Harris BJJ Self-Defense

What I Do

Hi, my name is Roy Harris. In the 41 years I’ve been practicing, teaching, and training in various styles of martial art (see my background here), I’ve innovated a handful of training methods that have helped clients gain skills in a matter of weeks! Here are a few examples:

ONE: I’ve taught my unique guard passing methods (not techniques) to a handful of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blue Belts – who train primarily at other academies. Two weeks after practicing what I had taught them, they were easily passing the guards of their fellow blue and purple belts at the academies where they trained. After another 4 weeks of training, they were now passing the guards of the purple, brown, and even some black belts.

Is this what you experience on a consistent basis where you train? If not, you are missing out on some good stuff!

TWO: I have clients and instructors who’ve gone through my Level One Brazilian Jiu Jitsu over 40 program and now they more fully enjoy their training – AND they no longer get injured when sparring! How did they do this? Simple. They learned and practiced three primary fundamentals!

Again, is something you experience on a consistent basis? If not, you are missing out on some REALLY good stuff!

THREE: With just two weeks of training and a bit homework, I  substantially increased the single-step footwork (mixed with a simple eye jab) of a handful of Jeet Kune Do clients by 11-18 inches (28-45cm). Imagine being able to hit a training partner, HARD, with a rear hand straight, who is standing 60 inches (153cm) away from you.

If you’re interested in learning how to move WAY BEYOND technique (i.e. HOW to train efficiently and develop skill sets quickly), let’s chat!



I have had the privilege of training privately under ROY HARRIS on and off for the past 15 years. He has trained me in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and in the ILUSTRISIMO SYSTEM of KALI. I found him a patient teacher and detailed instructor in both arts that he teaches. I would highly recommend him and his martial art material to anyone.”

“I have had the great opportunity to learn from Mr. Harris for the past 12 years through seminars, private lessons and MMA camps. I have implemented numerous of his training ideas and methods into my martial arts training regiment. These ideas and methods have made a positive impact on my martial arts journey. I am truly thankful for his influence in my life!

“Mr. Harris, I have NEVER heard concepts explained the way you do. They were so simple and illuminating. It was like a light bulb went off in my head and I finally understood how things were supposed to work. You’ve changed my game, my way of looking at BJJ training, and most of all, how I teach defensive tactics. Your teachings are ABSOLUTELY a game-changer!

One of the other guys who trained with us called me later and said, “This dude is Gandi!”

Also, I ordered your “Guard Passing Simplified” online course and have watched 65% of it. Wow! I learned more in that one course than I did in the past 20 years of training. So simple, EASY to understand, yet effective. 

Fantastic job Roy. See you next week!
