10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu Chicago

Review №1

Best in the business. I was away from martial arts for several years and tried multiple gyms in my area to get back into it. None of them were great fits for me. One trial session at this location and I knew right away I found my new home. Josh is a great teacher, the guys treat you like family, and Im beyond happy to have stumbled into this place that night.

Perfectly in tune with 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu as a grappling system, 10th Planet Chicago embodies the open-minded philosophy and scientific approach to martial arts that franchise founder Eddie Bravo is so well known for. If you want to fall in love with Jiu-Jitsu like Mr. Bravo has argued for in podcasts with Joe Rogan & crew, this is a great place to start.Head Coach Josh Passini consistently provides high level and in depth instruction to properly build or expand upon your skill base. Josh is also accompanied by over a dozen purple and brown belts that further specialize in specific avenues of Jiu-Jitsu. Whether its The Lockdown, leg locks, The Truck, The Crucifix, or the infamous Rubber Guard, there are plenty of experts present at the gym to guide you along. But fear not, they cover wrestling and takedowns, so no butt scooting required!If you come to 10th Plant Chicago with a humble ego, an observers eye, and a listeners ear, theres no telling how quickly you could upgrade your confidence, your grappling, and your life!

More than a gym, its a home away from home to everyone that makes that important decision to walk through the door. 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu Chicago is a room full of technically proficient Monsters, world class instructors and family that has built a bond that truly embodies the fact that martial arts impacts your life far beyond the techniques you learn. This place not only turned into a formidable Jiu-Jitsu practitioner, it saved my life and I know it can do the same for you.

I travel a lot with my job so train at various gyms. Hands down this the best place Ive trained at. Mike and his students were extremely welcoming, friendly and courteous. The standards there are very high and they have no issues helping along a newbie like myself. The gym is modern and immaculately clean. I cant recommend this place enough. Will be back soon.

This is truly a great place to learn and have fun!!Everyone is extremely friendly, and I felt welcome from my first class. Josh, the head instructor, has the body of knowledge and a rare talent to teach and explain the nuances of the technique practiced in the 10th planet system. I found that even as a complete newbie, Josh and other members, made it simple enough for me to learn quickly and have fun doing it. Every class is filled with detail technique, punctuated by fun stories and lots of laughs, which makes this melting pot of cool weirdos, feel much more like family. My only regret is that I haven’t visited this place sooner.Also, to my surprise, this place is quite inexpensive. There is no special dress code, and you can practice in your usual shorts/shirt.

I have trained at a lot of different gyms. As a life long martial artist and deep ties to the world of Mixed Martial Arts, I can tell you 10th Planet Chicago one of the very best places I have ever trained. Top notch instruction, functional jiujitsu no matter what you are looking for, sport, fitness, self-defense, you are good to go. The gym is ego free and full of people looking to reach their full potential in life and using jiujitsu as the path to greatness. If you havent checked it out, you are missing out on life!

Josh is a kick ass instructor. Everything is explained clearly and thoroughly. The people here are amazing and always willing to help the progress of everyone in the room. The class schedule caters to anyones lifestyle. For example I work a 9-5 and am able to get a solid mix of fundamental and advanced technique throughout the week. The vibes are welcoming and the team feels like just that, a team. Aside from the gym being awesome and the instruction being awesome Jiu Jitsu itself has changed my life. I no longer have crippling anxiety or depression and its all because of this place. Could not recommend this spot enough.

I joined 10th Planet Chicago about a year ago when I moved to Chicago. This is my home away from home now. I recently moved closer to the gym so that I could spend more time there. They say the hardest part of Jiu Jitsu is walking through the door. This room full of monsters may seem scary at first, but I promise that they are the nicest people on the the planet. In the words of Eddie Bravo, “we’re a bunch of nerds playing games of death.” If you want to be surrounded by a tribe of savages then come try a couple classes. We will teach you how to choke fools.

Josh is a great instructor. This is the place to train no gi jiu jitsu if you are in the area. He has some very solid and talented competitors as well. We took a traincation here a little while back and I had the best time!! As soon as I stepped foot on the mat I felt right at home. We would like to make it back soon! If you are just driving through or if youre looking or an awesome new school to be a part of, this is the place for you. :)

I recently visited 10th planet Jiu Jitsu Chicago North during my work related trip to the area. I was looking for a bjj gym to train at and contacted Josh via email. He replied and said it was ok to stop in and train and he gave me the address of their new facility. They have a late night training session which worked out great for me. It was my first time to a 10th planet facility and I was really impressed with the quality of training and the atmosphere they provided. They welcomed me as a drop in student. The drilling was based on some cool techniques and when we rolled I found the guys tough and technical. It was really good training and Im glad I had the chance to stop in. By the time I left I felt like a regular and if I lived in Chicago I definitely would be. Next time Im in Chicago I will definitely stop in again!
