Roy Dean Academy

Roy Dean Academy is a progressive Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy located in Bend, Oregon.  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a highly effective martial art for men, women, and children. It relies on leverage, timing, and proper technique to overcome larger and stronger opponents. We teach in a safe, friendly, and controlled environment which fosters fun, camaraderie, and respect.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a sophisticated grappling system, which includes throws, hold downs, and submissions. It can be practiced recreationally, or competitively, at all ages. It is a powerful system of self defense, and forms the basis for the U.S. Army’s Modern Combatives program. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu also is considered a foundational discipline for professional mixed martial artists.

Many of the techniques are well suited for women’s self defense situations. Once a woman is taught how to use her hips against the isolated joint of an attacker, confidence increases. While speed and strength will always be factors in physical altercations, a well trained Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner, male or female, will be able to negate most of their opponent’s power through proper technique, leverage, and timing.

Regular practice encourages a high level of physical fitness, increased coordination, and camaraderie with your new friends. Challenge yourself in training, and reap the benefits of improvement, on and off the mat.
