The master and founder of 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu, @eddiebravo, talks about the Denny Prokopos / Justin Rader super fight, cutting weight, his upcoming rematch with Royler Gracie and more! He's hands down, the finest, most accessible and useful Jiu Jitsu coach I've ever had the absolute fucking privelege of learning from. I came to him as a strong purple belt in 2005, and have had the honor to call him my teacher since then. I"ve proudly carried the flag of !0th Planet since that time and have been continually blown away by his worldview as well as the way he takes the walls off of our sport and nurtures fertile ground for its growth.
I could go on and on about that...hes a badass musician and has a large body of great work...but it isnt nearly a composite picture, nor is this particular podcast telling of all he is. He's a world-shaker and a revolutionary...he inspires and questions and is a true heretic. He is open and inquisitve and nurturing. He is a fantastic father and continually growing.
I cant say enough about my appreciation for him as a teacher, a friend, and a fellow human. So grateful...more to come...
