10th Planet Watch has made history! It’s achieved what many blogs only dream of, hitting 1000 posts! This little site has had it’s ups and it’s downs, but it’s stuck around through thick and thin. I’m rededicated to making this site what it once was, a daily source of news and entertainment. My goal is to write 90 articles in 90 days. This would be the best run I would have had lately. The first 3 years of this blog, I didn’t miss a single post. I’d like to get to that once again.
I have to thank you, the readers for giving me the motivation for keeping up with this blog. If I didn’t get so much feedback, both good and bad, I wouldn’t have had the drive to keep doing this. Everyday that I check Google analytics, I see I’m still getting tons of hits. As long as you guys find my stuff interesting, I’ll keep on writing and posting. If there’s any subjects you’d like to hear about, feel free to drop a comment, or email me, I’d be glad to post something up.
I originally created the blog late spring of 2008. !0th Planet was a huge source of traffic on the internet, and it was my plan to create a blog that would centralize all of the videos, pictures and news that I could find about Eddie Bravo’s wild and crazy form of Nogi Jiu Jitsu. We caused some stirs, had some laughs and most importantly, spread Jiu Jitsu through out the world. This little blog is responsible for helping me accomplish some amazing things of my own as well. I was able to go all over the world to teach seminars, coach fighters locally and in the UFC, I was able to open my own 10th Planet academy in Van Nuys, California, release tons of my own technique videos and loads more. It’s really helped me find a way to explore my passion.
Thank you to the BJJ/MMA/Martial Arts community! I’m passionate about what I do, and I’ll continue to do it as long as I live. Much Love.
