This past weekend, 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Santa Fe purple belt Nate Harris traveled to Los Angeles to compete in the second ever combat jiu jitsu match on the University of MMA‘s ‘Fight Night 2′ card.
Combat Jiu Jitsu is the brain child of Eddie Bravo who’s goal with it is to “fill that hole between MMA and grappling”. Essentially, CJJ is identical in rules as amateur MMA minus the ability to kick or punch on the feet. Once there is a take down is when striking is allowed.
The first CJJ match was held on May 20th, 2012 on the University of MMA’s ‘Champions of Tomorrow’ card and saw 10th Planet brown belt Erik ‘Compella’ Cruz take the win over Kristopher Gonzalez of King’s MMA with a rear naked choke late in the first round.
In a bit of deja vue, on May 19th, 2013, our own ‘Nasty’ Nate Harris scored the win over Jorge Pineda of King’s MMA…. with a rear naked choke late in the first round.
This was a great experience and opportunity that we were ecstatic to be a part of. Combat jiu jitsu is only going to get bigger from here and 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu is leading from the front!
10th Planet Santa Fe represented in Colorado this weekend with one of our up and coming grapplers bringing home the gold. All the boys fought hard and we had our share of wins and losses. As always Colorado boasts some of the toughest competition with competitors from all over the Midwest. Fight to win always runs a smooth operation with their tournaments and we can’t wait to compete at the next one! Congrats James Aragon on your 1st place win!!!
10th Planet Santa Fe represented hard at Southwest Grapplefest with 12 competitors bringing home 10 medals. Southwest Grapplefest always features some the toughest grapplers in the Southwest. We look forward to competing at the next one and bringing home as many medals as possible!
We had the pleasure of hosting the first ever Eddie Bravo seminar in New Mexico! We had a great turn out and the lessons he presented were priceless. He touched on many things from training gi, to training no gi and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for MMA. We look forward to having him again in the Fall. Stay tuned for the next date! 10th Planet is alive and strong and we aren’t going anywhere except to the top.
Many people, when starting a fitness program whether it be boxing, jiu jitsu, or CrossFit, have many questions about techniques or workouts that are most effective. The best technique that is often neglected is learning how to breath during workouts.
You often think, “Why do I need to learn how to breath if it’s something that happens naturally?”
The truth is, during workouts, many people tend to hold their breath. Or not breath in or out at appropriate times. Breathing is one of the most essential parts of making a workout or learning a technique most effective. Breathing out when exerting the most energy will produce the most velocity and power during movements. For example, breathing out as you push your body up on a push up will result in more explosion in the movement. Breathing in through your nose and out through mouth during endurance workouts will help slow down the heart rate and result in less fatiguing to last longer during workouts.
If you’re looking to step up your game and become a better performing athlete, ask a coach about the proper breathing techniques for the specific work out.
I was pretty nervous about working out in front of people in a class setting when I first started coming to the gym. I was always overweight and to be the habitual under-performer in a group can be embarrassing. My fitness level was not very high and I knew I was going to be the last and worst at everything. Yet, I was never made to feel guilty for being new or out of shape. The community at the gym really gave me to this sense that “we’re just happy you came in the door.” It felt different than any of my other attempts to ever get into actual shape and took away the nervousness of working out in a group of, sometimes, complete strangers.
The day after my first class I was tired and sore from practice and began making excuses to not go to class the next day. I was justifying to my roommate all the completely valid reasons I shouldn’t go but fortunately for me he didn’t let me quit. Sympathy in the form of ibuprofen, I gave up finding excuses and went to practice.
After a few months of taking classes my attendance began to sag a little bit… at first and then a lot. The excuses that popped up from the first day returned and I would develop all kinds of reasons why I couldn’t make it into the gym. My work outs suffered because of my low attendance and I was bummed out. Then, Tait and I had a talk and he reminded me of all the reasons I started coming to the gym in the first place. To get in shape, to be happy with my body, to learn something and pursue being good at that thing and others were all driving forces that had gotten me this far but I had lost sight of. Refocused, my attendance increased dramatically and with it, my results.
Eight months later, I’ve lost 40 lbs. and competed in two Jiu Jitsu tournaments. I never thought I would be in shape. I thought it was something I could never do. But perseverance has given me my fitness, ability to build upon it, and a new outlook. Endurance, not giving up and to keep going, is super important. I could never have done it by myself, and I didn’t. I did it with the help from innumerable people, all of them dear friends because of their support. The wonderful community at the gym and the amazing coaches at Undisputed Fitness gave me the endurance to get into shape.
Draw from this community, or friends and family or other positive people and it can give you the strength to endure all the reasons, excuses, injuries, and obstacles to achieve results you didn’t think were possible.
On April 6th, 10th Planet Santa Fe will have the great fortune of hosting a 4 hour seminar with the master of the 10th Planet system himself, Eddie Bravo.
Eddie holds a second degree black belt under Jean-Jacques Machado. He is most famous for his win as a brown belt against Royler Gracie by triangle choke in the 2003 Abu Dhabi Submission Wrestling championships and his particular style of no-gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, called 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu. The characteristics that distinguish it from traditional grappling are its strong focus on alternative and unconventional techniques, and its foundations without using a gi. The main premise behind 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu is that the art should keep evolving, finding new ways to attack and counter.
The 10th Planet system currently has 43 affiliate schools around the globe, according the official 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu location page, along with countless “Hotboxes”. (Schools that practice and rep 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu without being officially affiliated.) To say that the 10th Planet system is growing larger and larger every day would be an understatement, to say the least.
Eddie also has quite the list of notable students under his tutelage, including Joe Rogan, Chuck Liddell, Rhonda Rousey, Dan Hardy, and our own fearless leader himself, Tait Fletcher, amongst many others.
The seminar willl last from 12-4pm at 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu/Undisputed Fitness.
915 W Alameda, Santa Fe, NM 87501.
Registration is $100 (plus tax) in advance, $125 the day of.
To register, call (505) 992-2677. Space is filling up fast so don’t hesitate to call and register!!!
Don’t miss out on your chance to learn from the most innovative player in the jiu jitsu game today!
Eddie Bravo comes to New Mexico for the first time!
We are very proud of all the 10th Planet Santa Fe athletes who competed at the Gracie Nationals 2013 Submission – Only Tournament this past weekend. They all fought hard and almost everyone of them submitted their first opponent. Our very own Robert Rivera submitted 2 of his opponents and lost a hard fought match in the finals to take 2nd place in the 155 pound white belt division. As always it was a great learning experience and we expect to do better at the next tournament. Great job guys. So proud.
Undisputed’s boxing team was represented well by 3 brave athletes and had a great night of fights.
Dylan Halimi had a spectacular fight being the underdog but having the crowd on his side. Went 3 close rounds and having some of the most exciting moments of the evening ,but coming up a little short.
Noah Durkee, although having limited experience was the bravest going up against a taller, older and more experienced fighter and still showing up to fight.
Aron Galindo stole the show with a back and forth battle ending by referee stoppage in the 3rd round giving Undisputed Fitness a win in spectacular fashion. Aron really showed his heart by taking some devastating shots, but still coming forward and breaking his opponents will.
Not only was this an experience of a life time, but it was a great time for a great cause. The true winners were cancer survivors and their families. All the proceeds of the fights went towards medical expenses.
With their new gained experience, the fighters now know what they need to work and are back in the gym getting ready for the next event.
Honorable mention Justin Novotny for showing support and signing up to fight, but unfortunately not getting a match. I’m sure we’ll see him at the next event.
