You slip a Gracie or Bravo a little cash & then you can advertise Gracie or 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu for your business?

I don`t know,but I live in the Valley of California & often drive through small cities where I see Gracie Jiu-Jitsu advertised in cities as small as Tracy California.

Shit,I live near the small city of Manteca,and wouldn`t you know it...we have Cortez Martial Arts with a huge ass sign advertising Charles Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.

I was driving through Modesto yesterday and there was a Gracie Academy there and I think it is Charles also. Have you ever seen the Lions Den Academy that never opened in Modesto?

No,I have only read about it.It`s possible that it`s now Power MMA or something similar.Either that or I`m all mixed up.

So,that means "Charles" is probably being sent checks ;-) from Manteca,Modesto & Tracy.Not so much Tracy,because I think that is his home base.I say this,because...I shit you not,I have a friend who was a white belt under Cesar Gracie/Steve Heath at the time,tap out the Charles Gracie instructor in Manteca a few times.No bullshit.

Franchising, huh? You see, the thing with a franchise is...take McDonalds, for example. I get a Big Mac in LA or a Big Mac in Beijing, it's the same fucking Big Mac.

Do I get the same technique from one place to the next? Can I be sure the secret sauce tastes the way it was intended?

And, in all seriousness, when someone gets a black belt from a franchised institution, do they get to claim the lineage of the man with the name on the marquee or do they claim the line of the man who stood over them drilling technique everyday (assuming they're not one and the same)?

The UnderGround, Mayor

The term Gracie has probably been stolen by countless inept instructors now, but I have reffed many many many 100s of 10th Planet grapplers, and that brand is rock solid.

Yeah, OP should probably explain why this thread is 50% about 10th Planet Phone Post

Sure I`ll explain,but this thread was intended more about Gracie Jiu-Jitsu than 10th Planet.

I included 10th Planet because of all of the advertising that Eddie has done recently for seminars at his locations.I was surprised to see how locations that he has around the US.

Malvert the Janitor - Anyone have any insight into my question about lineage from affiliate schools/instructors? Phone Post 3.0
As far as I know all 10thP affiliate head instructors have trained under Eddie. So that way the students get him in their lineage I guess? Im a whitebelt though so I'm not down with all the codes and rules of Jiu Jitsu, maybe that's not how lineages works.

With a better title, OP could have got Eddie in here to explain.


One more thing I wanted to add. The 10thP affiliates (atleast the one I have trained at) seems to be very connected to the "main source". Both through internet and travels. Phone Post

Thanks man!

Question about 10th planet, pardon if it's a stupid one. Are all 10th planet instructors rubber guard specialists by trade or is the rubber guard not necessarily central to the ethos of the school?

There's a 10th planet affiliate about an hour from me is why I ask (I am a lowly nothing and apologies again if my questions are ignorant). Phone Post 3.0

I believe a brown belt runs the Tracy location. I have a buddy that was going to try it out, I'll ask him about it and update here

And regarding 10thpjj I believe who ever wants to be an affiliate has to showcase proper technique and know how on positions. I think you have to show bravo as well.

Maybe Eddie can come in and add some info. I'd be extremely surprised if EVERY 10th planet affiliate teacher/owner has spent years and years under Eddie
