10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Springfield

imageSuperhero Jiu Jitsu Academy is proud to be a 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu affiliate. 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu is a nogi, MMA based style of jiu jitsu. Some of the hallmarks of the 10th Planet system are use of the “rubber guard”, the twister, and lockdown half guard. 10th Planet prides itself on being a progressive, innovative style of jiu jitsu bent on improving jiu jitsu for MMA. Eddie Bravo, who came to prominence after his first match against Royler Gracie in 2003, has been a very controversial person in the jiu jitsu community mostly for his moving away from wearing the traditional gi. With over 50 affiliates internationally, 10th Planet Jiu JItsu has a very close knit group of supporters all over the world.

Head instructor Mike Dewitt started wrestling in 8th grade and through high school. Mikes jiu jitsu journey began in 2008 where he quickly moved through the ranks through hard work and dedication to learning and applying the 10th planet system in competition and became the first black belt, not promoted by Eddie Bravo in the system, in just 5 years.
