10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu is a system of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu developed by Eddie Bravo. It was one of the first Jiu-Jitsu school systems to not use a gi.

History[edit]

In 2003, after earning a black belt under Jean-Jacques Machado, Eddie Bravo opened his first 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu school in his home state of California, he focused his jiu-jitsu on training without the traditional gi; becoming one of the first jiu-jitsu school systems to do so. The idea behind this was to try to implement as many of the techniques as possible in mixed martial arts (MMA) competitions. Bravo worked for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) during this time and felt the jiu-jitsu wasn't as high-level as it could've been, partially attributing this to fighters wearing a gi when training jiu-jitsu but competing in MMA without one.[1]

Learning the system[edit]

In addition to the original 10th Planet headquarters in Los Angeles, there are over 70 schools worldwide, some are established BJJ training facilities that have adopted the system as an expansion of the art. The style has spread overseas to the United Kingdom[2], Germany[3], Sweden, Australia[4] and Korea.

Victory Belt Publishing released three manuals covering techniques of the 10th Planet system: Mastering the Rubber Guard,[5] Mastering the Twister,[6] and Advanced Rubber Guard,[7] the first and third books cover the system's signature rubber guard, while the second tackles the twister, another integral position in the system. The books were written by Eddie Bravo, Glen Cordoza, and Erich Krauss.

Eddie Bravo also airs an hour to two hour online series every month on his website.[8]

Ranked patches[edit]

10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu uses the standard Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ranking system, its practitioners most commonly train without a gi and belt. 10th Planet offers colored ranked rashguards to help visually denote belt rank.[9]
