Eddie Bravo made his name in nogi grappling famously submitting Royler Gracie at ADCC. From that point on it didn’t even matter that Bravo ended up losing in the first next match – to Leo Vieira.
This is what led Bravo to start his own jiu-jitsu movement in 10th Planet. Now the 10th Planet is looking at a different frontier, the goal is no longer to be accepted and embraced but to end the dominance of Danaher Death Squad – the group that largely made their name by being involved in Eddie Bravo’s sub only series Eddie Bravo Invitational.
Hey, the DDS guys are f*cking most people up — we got to get them. So that’s the goal, every day you teach class, every day… Every day it’s about being No. 1. If we don’t get No. 1, that’s fine. I’m not going to jump off a bridge. But it’s not going to be because we didn’t try our hardest. I just want to win. I just want to go out there and begin domination. My goal is to be No. 1 — that’s it. And if I have to light fires under people’s asses, that’s all I can do.
EBI events have been largely dominated by the members of the Danaher Death Squad with the only victories in the 12 thus far concluded events going to Denny Prokopos and Geo Martinez (who won events 1,2 and 10)
