Here is some old footage from early 2020 of 10th planet black belt Brandon Mccaghren and his instructor Eddie Bravo rolling together at 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu HQ out in Downtown Los Angeles, USA.
Mccaghren on rolling Eddie Bravo:
“Training with Eddie is absolutely the best. I’m so lucky to have been able to learn from him and train with him over the years. He still has so much to teach me.”
If you train BJJ, you have for sure heard of 10th planet Jiu-Jitsu.
How different is it to regular Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu? Lets examine some of the differences. Number one they use no gi. The style focuses on not being a slave to the cloth. It makes a lot of sense because most of the time, fights do not have a lapel or thick ass collar to pull off a gi choke. That forces the practitioners to rely on arm wrapping, under hooking and different styles of leg entanglements to control the opponent.
Secondly, there is a strong focus on posture control. If your posture is compromised, then being able to hit hard on the ground is compromised, which is a very good thing when you find yourself in a fight or an MMA match. Thirdly, 10th planet teaches in a way that really focuses on combinations and flows where the techniques just go together in a 3-6 move series. Like a boxer, the combination work really gives the fighter the ability to train in a more reality based flow then just straight single attacks. And lastly, the technique innovation is just next level.
Using non traditional BJJ techniques and creating systems out of them have not only made the style effective and out of the box, but very unpredictable for the traditional BJJ student to recognize and defend against. Examples go beyond rubber guard to the truck positon, twister control and lockdown.
