In 2003, after earning a black belt under Jean-Jacques Machado, Eddie Bravo opened his first 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu school in Los Angeles, California. Bravo’s system emphasizes developing students for submission-only grappling competition rather than points. He focused his jiu-jitsu on training without the traditional gi; becoming one of the first jiu-jitsu schools to do so. The idea behind this was to try to implement as many of the techniques as possible in mixed martial arts (MMA) competitions. Bravo worked for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) during this time and felt the jiu-jitsu wasn’t as high-level as it could’ve been, mainly attributing this to fighters wearing a gi when training jiu-jitsu but competing in MMA without one. 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu has been controversial since it’s inception. Bravo’s changes to traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, like abandoning the gi, drew a lot of backlash and there has been debate to how much 10th Planet techniques, most notably its iterations of the rubber guard, should be used in MMA.
