10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Santa Barbara is a non-traditional style of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu developed by Master Eddie Bravo and has become the fastest growing style of Jiu Jitsu today.  Although 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu has its origins and fundamentals in traditional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, that's where the similarities end. 

In traditional Jiu Jitsu, you rely heavily on using the Japanese Kimono or Gi to submit your opponent.  While in 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu, we remove the Gi from the equation and focusing more on clinching and over hooking your opponent, making it a more effective against punches and in a street fight. In fact, Eddie Bravo specifically created 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu to help MMA fighters and to evolve the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu into an offensive and defensive form of self-defense.
