10th Planet is Blowin’ up!

“OpenMat Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is very proud to announce that we are now the home of 10th Planet Toronto!

For those who don’t know, 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu is the highly effective BJJ & MMA system developed by Jean Jacques Machado Black Belt, Eddie Bravo. Known world-wide as one of the most innovative, passionate and systematic BJJ instructors, Eddie’s game is slowly changing the face of MMA. He first became famous for using his unique strategies to submit Royler Gracie in ADCC 2003. Today they have evolved into a powerful and imposing strategy for dominating in BJJ & MMA.

We had Eddie in town this past Saturday for a four-hour advanced BJJ seminar, attended by some of the most talented and skilled practitioners in the province. After a thorough, educational and fun seminar, Eddie announced our new affiliation.

This is an amazing opportunity for OpenMat students and all Toronto-area Jiu-Jitsu practitioners to learn some of today’s most innovative and effective Jiu-Jitsu!

10th Planet Classes will run at OpenMat BJJ & MMA on Mondays from 8:00-9:00, and Wednesdays from 7:30-8:30, both followed by a half-hour open mat. We will also be holding mixed OpenMat Beginner’s BJJ/10th Planet JJ classes Saturdays from 2:00-3:00, followed by an hour-long open mat. 10th Planet classes are open to students with a minimum of four months of experience.

OpenMat is located at 8 Park Road, Level “T” – one block East of Yonge and Bloor, just North of Bloor. For more information, email classes@openmat.ca or call 416 710-8271.

See you on the mat!
