Wow! Thanks a million, Roy! That was awesome. I particularly liked your grappling clips with Joe and the pictures from Hawaii.

Excellent clips, thank you! I really like the sparring pace between Joe and Roy, being older i really relate to that speed.

cdog1955, When I grapple with my instructor, I grapple at a speed where I can learn. I am watching and observing his movements. In no way am I trying to compete against him. The speed you see allows me to observe and FEEL a lot! The speed also allows me to progress very quickly! If there was one secret to my development, it would be this one element: Learning how to grapple at learning speeds (not competitive speeds) ! Roy Harris

Roy, i understand completely! This is the speed i try to roll with 100% of the time. I am just returning to Bjj after 7 yrs absence because of injuries, some of them were complelely my fault because of to hard training for my then age (i didnt start training till after 40). The problem is making guys understand my situation, but i have found a few that dont mind rolling my speed. I just read about your over 35 instructional comming out and i will purchase it. I wish there was an interest for Bjj intensive training or camps for the older person, as i would like to train in this kind of atmosphere.

demandango, Yes it is possible. But, it will require more isometric strength on your part, as well as a firm understanding of "positioning." Additionally, the purpose for grappling at that speed is to learn, not to compete. Younger guys tend to get caught up in the whole "Who tapped Who" game. Even some older guy get caught in the same trap. And, as a result, every match ends up being a competition. Every match is a opporunity to WIN or prove themselves. And while there's nothing wrong with competition, ALWAYS competing gets old because injuries (big or small) are always right around the corner. Roy Harris

Awesome! "The “Brazilian Jiu Jitsu after 40” instructional will break new ground in the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu" 40 yo is only 5 yrs away for me.
