Professor Roy Harris is a meticulous and innovative instructor. In all the years I have known him, I have been completely blown away by his teachings and concepts. He could explain and break down a technique or concept so that it is easily understood and digested. My training partners and I will often ask ourselves, can it be that easy? It is that easy once Professor Harris breaks it down and explains it. I have been interested in the BJJ Over 40 program since Professor Harris came out with his BJJ Over 40 DVD.

I hosted Professor Harris for his first-ever BJJ Over 40 Level 1 Instructor course in Peachtree City, Georgia. I was hooked from the beginning and have just completed his Level 4 BJJ over 40 Instructor course in Naples, Florida.

Professor Harris is continually preaching community and safety above all else when training so that we can slow the young guns down while being safe and remaining injury-free so we can train into our 70s and 80s.

When I was younger I had back issues and ended up having 3 back surgeries with the last one being a failed fusion of L5/S1. Once I was introduced to Professor Harris’s BJJ over 40 program, it changed my game and training around my injury and has helped me stay on the mats and training. I have a busy career and family. I train more as a hobbyist 2 to 3 times a week. I can’t afford to be injured and take time off from work or not be able to spend quality time with my family. This is why I have embraced his over 40 teachings and concepts. I highly recommend attending one of Professor Harris’s BJJ Over 40 instructors’ courses in person or online.
