10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu is a non-traditional system of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu developed by Eddie Bravo. After earning a black belt under Jean-Jacques Machado, Eddie Bravo focused his Jiu-Jitsu on training without the gi, partially because of the applications to mixed martial arts. The main premise behind the 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu system is that the art should keep evolving.
The 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu kids class curriculum is based on giving your kids the ability to walk around school with confidence, while gifting them the attributes of self- discipline, patience, and wellness. We focus on anti-bullying techniques and strive to prepare our youth to become leaders and productive members of their community. Jiu Jitsu for kids include many benefits such as increasing flexibility, muscle endurance, and development of problem-solving skills. Learning Jiu Jitsu promotes self-discipline while simultaneously increasing the use of problem solving skills and brain function.
Planet Jiu Jitsu revolves around the concept of training without the use of the Kimono. Our belief is that this will bring our students a more realistic view of fighting and actual overall practicality of self-defense scenarios. Because we believe that you do not need the use of the Gi/Kimono to fully experience the essence of Jiu Jitsu, our philosophy branches off from the traditional and focuses on modern techniques that will mold you into a true martial artist.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was developed from Japanese Jiu Jitsu, the primary difference is that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is based on the principles that a smaller human can defend and subdue a larger attacker using leverage and technique. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu primarily focuses on Gi(kimono) and uses joint manipulation and choke holds to encourage an attacker/opponent to concede. Both Gi an Nogi styles are martial arts that take place on the ground. The main difference between Gi and Nogi is Gi uses grips and slower style vs Nogi uses Over/Under hooks and a faster style.
