10th Planet - Love it or hate it. Eddie Bravo - Creator of everything grappling or not. Most of you out there in cyberspace usually feel very strongly one way or another. There is very little grey when it comes to loving or believing in the 10th Planet System. Unfortunately, Eddie often faces harsh criticism from high level black belts, often called a "fake" or "Not a real BJJ artist." Others follow and believe in him as if he were a grappling god among men, a developer, an innovator and the creator of everything in 10th Planet and beyond.
We've said this before, grapplers - wake up and smell the mat cleaner. Eddie is a legit BJJ black belt, an ADCC vet, and has coached countless MMA fighters. He has also developed his own style of grappling based on catch and BJJ. Yes, catch and BJJ (also including judo and sambo). What Eddie has done is think outside the box. He teaches strictly no-gi grappling and he has streamlined the teaching process and eliminated the belt system.
Regardless of what you think of the man, he has put together some of the best of the best. Check out the guys over at Train Fight Win show you a 10th Planet inspired flow drill that will take you from escaping mount, sweeping and gaining top position.
