How Does It Work

Here’s how to get the most out of these online lessons


Let's chat through email

Send me an email to let me know your goals and immediate concerns. From there, we will plot a course of action over a series of 15, 30, 60, 90, or 120-minute long lessons.

Schedule & pay for your lesson

Let me know which days and times work for you for your first lesson. And, you can use just about any of the top online payment forms to pay in advance for your lesson. We can discuss all of these in our first few emails.

Take time to discover and determine

What things would you like to learn? What are your goals for these lessons? And more importantly, how will you know you have reached your stated goals at the end of each lesson? Knowing this beforehand will help you manage your lesson!

Show up early

Because time is our most important and precious commodity, please be there, ready to go, for your lesson a few minutes before your lesson time. For example, if we agreed to have a lesson from 10:00 am to 10:30 am, you would have my undivided attention during this time. If you show up at 10:15 am, you will still have my undivided attention – but now from 10:15 am until 10:30 am.

Take good notes

Make sure to bring a notebook as well as a few pens and pencils to take notes – because recordings are not allowed.

Also, I will allow time for you to finish writing your notes – because this is an important part of the learning journey!

If you’d like to learn how to take better notes, here are a couple of good instructional videos on the topic:

How to Take Notes Effectively

Practice and Train

When you work with me, you’ll discover that I teach you the differences between the words “practice” and “training” – whereas other instructors use those words interchangeably. I will teach you how to practice, how to train, as well as what to train – because there’s SO MUCH MORE to skill development than (A) learning techniques and (B) learning a plethora of technical details!

So, if you truly want noticeable and measurable skills in a shorter period of time, stick to the plan I give you! Practice and train what I’ve taught you in our time together.

review, rewrite & return

Once you have completed all of the above, and put in the requested time I mentioned in our lesson, I’d like you to review and rewrite your notes before you return to your next lesson. Doing so will complete the process and more fully prepare you for your next lesson!


How does all of this sound? Are you interested in getting better at arm locks, passing the guard, throws and takedowns, increasing the distance of your jab or ear hand straight, your oblique kick, or your ability to more efficiently control suspects on the ground? If any or all of this sounds like something you desire, email me, and let’s talk. I’m confident I can help you gain measurable skills quickly!

I look forward to hearing from you,

Roy Harris
