10th Planet Jiu Jitsu revolves around the concept of training without the use of the Kimono. Our belief is that this will bring our students a more realistic view of fighting and actual overall practicality of self-defense scenarios. Because we believe that you do not need the use of the Gi/Kimono to fully experience the essence of Jiu Jitsu, our philosophy branches off from the traditional and focuses on modern techniques that will mold you into a true martial artist.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was developed from Japanese Jiu Jitsu, the primary difference is that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is based on the principles that a smaller human can defend and subdue a larger attacker using leverage and technique. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu primarily focuses on Gi(kimono) and uses joint manipulation and choke holds to encourage an attacker/opponent to concede. Both Gi an Nogi styles are martial arts that take place on the ground. The main difference between Gi and Nogi is Gi uses grips and slower style vs Nogi uses Over/Under hooks and a faster style.
