10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu is a non-traditional style of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu developed by Eddie Bravo.

The characteristics that distinguish it from traditional grappling are its strong focus on alternative and unconventional techniques, and its foundations without using a gi. Victory Belt Publishing released three manuals covering techniques of the 10th Planet system, one in 2006, a second in 2007, and finally the third in 2011. The first and third books cover aspects of the signature guard of the system, the rubber guard, while the second tackles aspects of the twister, another integral position in the system. The books were written by Eddie Bravo, Glen Cordoza, and Erich Krauss. Planet X is the Gi version of 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu.

Bravo created this no-gi style of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu after defeating Royler Gracie via triangle choke in the ADCC 2003. 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu focuses on constant pressure from unorthodox positions such as the Rubber guard, Twister Side Control, Monkey Mount (Gangsta Lean) and the half-guard position known as the “Lock down”. The main premise behind 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu is that the art should keep evolving, finding new ways to attack and counter. Bravo believes that standard Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has become boring and predictable.

In addition to the original 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu in Los Angeles, there are several other 10th Planet gyms throughout North America; some are established BJJ training facilities that have adopted the system as an expansion of the art. In addition to these, the style has also spread overseas, to the UK, Germany, Sweden, even as far as Victoria, Australia.
