"Spend five minutes discussing jiu jitsu with Roy Marsh and you will immediately realize that he is a student of the game.

Roy has dedicated his life to understanding the underlying concepts of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a way that only a handful of people can appreciate. It is a pleasure to train with him every single time."

"Roy Marsh is a fantastic instructor who I train with every chance I get. He clearly values self-defense first and teaches jiu jitsu with real-life scenarios in mind.

His instruction is easy to follow because it is very concept-driven, so I don’t get lost in the details. In fact, I am often able to apply concepts that I learn from Roy right away, because they just make sense."

Jason "Turbo" Dillon

MMA Fighter, WFC Champion

"My name is Jason Dillon, and I am a mixed martial artist with a record of 7-1. My career has taken me as far away as Australia as a training partner to UFC Veteran Spencer "The King" Fisher. I hold state titles in North and South Carolina, and have won grappling tournaments in numerous states. I attribute much of my success to the instruction I have received from Roy Marsh.

I began training with Roy about four years ago and he helped develop my fighting style from the ground up. In my opinion, Roy Marsh is one of the best Jiu Jitsu instructors out there. I have used the skills taught by Roy in every fight that I've won. Thanks, Roy, for your dedication to making me a better fighter."

Jeff Shaw

Multiple Time Gold Medalist

"Roy Marsh is an outstanding instructor that anyone interested in jiu-jitsu would be fortunate to learn from. Roy is an excellent teacher with a deep understanding of jiu-jitsu and the ability to communicate that understanding to his students. Besides his passion for the art, Roy has keen insights into both the high-level concepts and fine details that make techniques work. I drive three hours round-trip to train with and take private lessons from Roy, and it’s worth it every time. In fact, I won a match at the Mundials in part because of guard passing details he showed me.

No matter what your skill level is, Roy’s technical insight and gift for teaching will help you progress in your jiu-jitsu journey. I tell all my training partners who want to improve their game that they shouldn’t miss a chance to train with Roy. You shouldn’t miss a chance to train with him, either!"


"Roy is truly a selfless and devoted martial artist
that I am privileged to call a friend."

Andrew Culbreth

IBJJF Gold Medalist

"Roy Marsh has been an important instructor of Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu to me. He has helped with tournament strategy, techniques, and coaching that were a vital role to my winning major tournaments. His classes on self defense have given me a perspective to learn techniques that work both in a combative environment and sport.

Roy is always attempting to stay current to the evolution of BJJ technique as well as applying the traditional methods of the Grandmaster Helio Gracie. His method of teaching simplifies complicated movements into steps that are easy to understand and apply. As an instructor Roy is very accessible and his passion for Jiu-Jitsu comes through in his classes. I have been lucky to have had Roy as both training partner and teacher."

"Roy has contributed immensely to the development of the Modern Army Combatives Instructors of the 82nd Airborne Combatives and Advanced Tactics School located on Ft. Bragg, NC.

Because of Roy's ability and passion to instruct, I have seen massive improvements in every aspect of my jiu-jitsu abilities both on and off the mat as well as in my own ability to teach students."


SSG Jeff Yurk

"I have had the great pleasure to learn from Roy Marsh and what has always stood out to me about him is his ability to be so comfortable teaching the most experienced Special Operations Soldier, the enthusiastic little ones in his kids program; and everyone in between.

His outgoing personality, ability to articulate well, his skills as a fighter, and his great character as a person all play a role in making Roy Marsh a great training partner, instructor, and friend."

I feel like I become better from the experience"
