From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu is a non-traditional style of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu developed                   10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu
by Eddie Bravo. The characteristics that distinguish it from traditional grappling
are its strong focus on alternative and unconventional techniques, and its
foundations without using a gi. Victory Belt Publishing released three manuals
covering techniques of the 10th Planet system, one in 2006, [1] a second in
2007, [2] , and finally the third in 2011. [3] The first and third books cover
aspects of the signature guard of the system, the rubber guard, while the
second tackles aspects of the twister, another integral position in the system.
The books were written by Eddie Bravo, Glen Cordoza, and Erich Krauss.
Planet X is the Gi version of 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu. [citation needed]
