Elbows Tight Podcast: Roy Dean - The Importance of Cross Training

Elbows Tight Podcast: The Beginners Journey Through Jiu-Jitsu

Today's interview is with the incredible Roy Dean. Professor Roy Dean is a third-degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, under Professor Roy Harris and Seibukan Jujutsu, with additional black belts in Kodokan Judo and Aikikai Aikido. He is the author of two books, Becoming the Black Belt A BJJ Journey and The Martial Apprentice: A Japanese Jujutsu Adventure, which are both must-reads for any martial artist. Mr. Roy Dean started his martial arts journey as a 16-year-old boy living in Japan as a foreign exchange student. He was told that he needed to pick up a traditional Japanese hobby and pursue Kodokan Judo. From there, he fell in love with multiple martial arts. Ultimately he found BJJ in his early 20's and was hooked. Mr. Roy Dean is probably most known for his high-quality video content on his YouTube page and his RoyDean.tv. He looks to be a storyteller with all of his content instead of just talking head with technique. His belt demonstration starts with a beautiful symphony of technical knowledge into rounds of sparing, starting with lower belts as the tester slowly works up the ladder of difficulty until they finally reach Mr. Dean himself for their final test before earning their new rank. Even with what fame and acknowledgment he has earned worldwide, Mr. Dean is extremely humble and wants to give as much as he can back to the Jiu-Jitsu community as possible. His wealth of knowledge, humility, personality and content search for improvement flows from him with every question answered. We can not thank Mr. Roy Dean enough for giving us his time and the opportunity to pick his brain about various topics. We hope you gain as much out of this interview as we did.
