Hi all,
Hope you are all having a great day in your part of the world.

What was your 10th Planet JJ experience like? At legends, with Eddie, attending seminars here or overseas?

Oh Christ, you're not going to start spamming the site about 10th Planet are you? Isn't that what the Atama forum is for?

BTW, I attended his seminar in Australia in 2003 and it was excellent - Eddie runs a great seminar. However I really don't like the Twister so it didn't add to my game at all.

Well I can only speak from the experience of one seminar, under Sensei Frank Barca.

The seminar was fantastic - very high energy. Learning the rubber guard from someone actually trained in it by Eddie Bravo was a lot more informative than from a book / video. Also, twister side control, was a great addition to my game and I regularly use it, especially when rolling with guys who outweight me substantially.

One thing I did find was that all the unusual names given to the moves - Zombie, Chill Dog, New York etc - really helped to retain the moves in the mind.

I hope to do another 10th Planet seminar under Frank in the near future - it's hard to pin him down for a time to get one as he's always teaching one somewhere!

^^It is posts like the above that annoy me about the 10th Planet System. And i think it is one of the reasons a lot of people write of 10th Planet as a gimmick.Every single person who is involved in selling the 10th Planet system sounds like a used car salesman. Everyone takes Eddie's marketing plan and repeats it verbatim. It just feels so staged it is ridiculous. Frank makes a thread about 10th Planet and we have every 10th Planet representative jumping over to the Australasian forum to slap each other on the back. It just seems so fake. Frank makes a thread about peoples experiences with Eddie and someone jumps on and towes the party line perfectly. He switches the attention to Franks teaching skill which wasn't the point of the thread, and then goes on to hit all the main points about 10thJJ being good for people who out weigh you and their individual vernacular is unique, original and adds to te systems merit.I don't know if what i am thinking has translated to words very well so i will leave it there. But in short, if you try and sell something like a gimmick, people are going to believe it is a gimmick and rag on it accordingly. PS> I have been to an Eddie seminar and was fortunate to hang out with him during an open mat for a couple of hours with only 3 or four people the night before. Very cool guy with cool ideas and awesome passion.

Hey everyone my name's Julian,
I've been a student under Frank for a bit more than 3 years now and can easily tell anyone, 10th planet is legit and so is Frank, i've never seen anyone so keen and interested about MA and practicality as him, wherever things are moving he's already there.
10th planet is a great system that is practical for MMA and always evolving, i love it when people from other schools come by for a day, we don't see them again.
BTW Unit 91 no one cares what annoys you. How do you know its a gimmick if you've never rolled with anyone from 10th planet? or at least tried it? come down to our school anytime mate.

supa10pjjMelb,
Maybe no-one comes back because they don't like what is being taught?

Supa10pjjMelb,

You completely missed the point. So it is hopeless continueing the discussion.

Oh and you missed the bit where i have trained with a 10th planet guy in Eddie.

It is you who needs to open your mind. Not me.

I typed in Scott Epstein on Google and his MMA record and Statistics came up... proving he is not infact a "keyboard warrior"... I also typed in Alex Gilmour and a photo of a retarded kid came up ( the kid didnt have an MMA record either).

It would appear it is Alex Gilmour who is the "keyboard warrior"

OUCH!
