New Ground Jiu jitsu


10th Planet Jiu Jitsu is a non-traditional system of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu developed by Eddie Bravo. After earning his black belt under Jean-Jacques Machado, Bravo focused his Jiu-Jitsu on developing a clinch based system without the gi, to better improve its application in mixed martial arts competition. Since then, no-gi grappling has exploded across the globe with organizations such as the Eddie Bravo Invitational, Polaris, and Kasai Pro, pushing no-gi submission grappling to the next level.
