10th Planet Jiu Jitsu is a no-gi style of submission grappling developed by Eddie Bravo. It is performed without the use of a traditional Kimono, or martial arts uniform. It focuses on technique and leverage, over strength and athleticism. With proper usage, smaller, weaker people can successfully defend against bigger, stronger opponents. Typically a player wins by controlling an opponent while moving into advantageous positions or by applying joint-locks and chokes to submit an them. 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu is trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments, mixed martial arts (MMA) competition but mostly for fun.
