With over 35 years of Jiu-Jitsu, Sensei Roy brings a vast knowledge base to his students.  Sensei Roy earned his Black Belt in classical JuJitsu way back in 1988 after training for ten years and has been teaching all over northern Illinois ever since.  Roy has also achieved the rank of Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under legendary master Relson Gracie.  Roy received his purple belt directly from Master Relson himself and earned his brown belt through Relson Gracie Cleveland.  Roy splits his time teaching at multiple schools in the area.  The fact that people from several other schools & styles come in specifically for Sensei Roy's classes speaks volumes for both his skills and teaching style.  He emphasizes Jiu-Jitsu as a self defense system while at the same time embracing the competitive aspect that fits well with our schools holistic approach to the martial arts.
