Jiu Jitsu​Fundamentals

If you have never trained Jiu Jitsu before this is the class for you.  These hour long classes cover the basic positions and techniques of no-gi Jiu Jitsu. There is no sparring in the fundamentals classes so they are a great way to gain an understanding of the different techniques and positions of Jiu Jitsu without risk of injury and are a great way to build a foundation before jumping into the all levels classes. Each class begins with a light warm up followed by 45 minutes drilling technique.

 

In each class we focus on one position and teach several different techniques from whatever position is being covered that day. The idea is not to master the individual techniques, but to gain a basic understanding of what options are available in each position. This way, when the student moves into the All Levels classes, they will already be familiar with the positions and will have seen a couple of different techniques from each position so there wont be any position from which they feel lost or helpless.

Women's only

Our free women's only jiu jitsu classes are a safe, supportive environment in which to learn the art of Jiu Jitsu. The fact is most physical altercations end up on the ground and knowing how to fight off of your back is the most valuable self defense skill a women can posses.

 

At 10th Planet Longmont we use this knowledge to provide the women in our classes with the most effective form of real world self defense available. Our women's classes are a perfect place for women to gain confidence, strengthen their bodies and make friends with other strong women in the community all while learning real world, functional self-defense.

 

We understand that many women first start training Jiu Jitsu after being attacked and this class provides a safe space to regain your power in a supportive and understanding environment before venturing into the coed class. This class is free so you never have to let financial hardship keep you from feeling safe. Class meets 3 times a week: Tuesday and Friday evenings at 6:00pm and Sunday at noon.

Most physical altercations and all Jiu Jitsu matches start standing. The skills taught in our takedown classes give you the ability to safely take the fight to the ground to secure a dominant position. If you are looking to compete in Jiu Jitsu or just want to feel more confident on the street, our takedown classes will give you the skills to bring the fight to the ground safely and effectively. We spend a lot of time on pummeling or hand fighting to establish dominant hand position and focus on using Russian and baseball grip 2-on-1 tie ups to set up the takedown. These skills transfer seamlessly from street self defense to sport Jiu Jitsu and are the foundation of a well balanced standing takedown game. Takedown defense is also covered for strikers who wish to keep the fight standing.

10P
Warmups

The 10th Planet Warmups provide the skeleton of the entire 10th Planet System. The warmups feature all the techniques that Eddie Bravo believes are essential to mastering the system and are "synced" to headquarters in Los Angeles.

 

The warmups are lettered from A to H and each letter has four numbered sequences. Series A is Granby's, B is Hail Mary's, C is Pressure Passes, D is Standing Passes, E is Quarter Guard, F is Butterfly Guard, G is Top Half Passes and H is Open Guard.

 

Once you have memorized and mastered the warmups, you will have a solid foundation upon which to build your own unique game. The warmups classes are suitable for all students and the "10p Warmups" app is available for both Apple and Android devices for free in the app store.

all Levels Jiu jitsu

Our All Levels classes go into greater detail on the techniques covered in our Jiu Jitsu Fundamentals classes and provide an opportunity to apply the techniques in live positional sparring.

 

Classes start with a brief warmup and then dive deep into the specific details needed to master a given technique. At the end of class, students are given the opportunity to try the techniques "live" against a resisting opponent in positional sparring. This is where the real progress is made as you are able to see what works and make the necessary adjustments to perfect your technique.

 

If you have trained Jiu Jitsu before, have a strong athletic foundation and are comfortable with live rolling, this is the class for you.

Yoga pose

yin yoga

Yin Yoga is a relaxing, breath based  style of yoga in which postures or asanas are held for several minutes.

 

The sequence of postures is meant to stimulate the meridians or energy channels of the body and apply moderate stress to the tendons, fascia, and ligaments with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.

 

A more meditative approach to yoga, our goal in this class is to bring awareness to the current state of our bodies and to soften the chatter of the mind. 

 

These gentle, meditative classes offer a nice balance to the yang energy found in the rest of our classes.

Leg Locks

Our Leg Locks class focuses on teaching the 6 basic fundamental leg locking positions: Ashi, Outside Ashi, Inside Ashi, Cross Ashi, Cross Outside Ashi (50/50) and Cross Inside Ashi (Inside Senkaku or Honey Hole).

This class cover both entries into these positions, as well as the breaking or finishing mechanics once in position. Classes focus on both defending and attacking as well as pinning and isolating the legs. There is a large emphasis placed on safety and understanding the breaking mechanics of these powerful positions. 

The leg locks class always takes place at the same time as our fundamentals classes to give our more advanced practitioners an opportunity to improve their leg game after they have mastered the fundamentals.
