About 10th Planet Jiut Jitsu Route 66
"Where the impossible becomes possible."
10th Planet Jiu Jitsu is a grappling system that was created by Eddie Bravo in the early 2000s. Eddie Bravo was a student of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) legend Jean-Jacques Machado, and he started to develop his own approach to BJJ that focused on techniques and strategies that were outside the traditional BJJ curriculum.
The name "10th Planet" comes from the idea that the system is a parallel universe to traditional BJJ, with its own unique set of techniques and principles. The system is based on a "no-gi" approach, which means that it is designed for grappling without the use of a traditional uniform or gi.
One of the key principles of 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu is the use of the rubber guard, a technique that involves wrapping one's legs around an opponent's body and controlling their posture. Other techniques that are commonly used in 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu include the twister, the truck, and the vaporizer.
10th Planet Jiu Jitsu has gained a reputation as a highly effective system for MMA and submission grappling competitions. It has also become popular among recreational grapplers and fitness enthusiasts who are looking for a challenging and innovative way to train. The system has spread around the world, with many 10th Planet-affiliated gyms and instructors teaching the system in countries such as the United States, Canada, and Australia.
