10th Planet West LA is an all-level Jiu-Jitsu academy instructed by first degree Black beltScott "Einstein" Epstein —a professional mixed martial artist with an undefeated record. Epstein obtained his black belt from Eddie Bravo and arguably knows the 10th Planet System better than anybody excluding Bravo himself. He was recruited by Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell to coach the fighters on Team Liddell on The Ultimate Fighter season 11. He also continues to serve as the former UFC champion's Jiu-Jitsu coach along with other pro fighters. 10th Planet jiu-jitsu West LA is your Los Angeles source for instruction and information on the 10th Planet jiu jitsu System. Scott also has over 20 years experience as a fitness professional and use that knowledge to get his students in the best shape of their lives.

"Scott Epstein has the knowledge and he cares more than most. When it comes to individual training, Einstein is one of the best teachers I have ever seen." -Eddie Bravo

"He's really detail oriented. I think a lot of great submission guys don't know how to teach as well as he does. Scott breaks it down very well for people." -Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell

Let's see.. I began my jiu jitsu journey here, it was the closest one to my house. I had a great experience from the beginning, but I thought: "what do I know? I have to try a few other places to get a feel for what I like in a school." So I moved on to a few other schools, and after several months realized that the techniques remembered best were the ones I learned with Scott at 10th planet west la. So very recently I returned and resumed training there intermittently as an add-on to my regular training. If you are looking into training jiu jitsu in LA, lucky you, the city you live in is jiu jitsu mecca and there are many options - but do yourself a favor and put 10th planet west LA at or near the top of your list. I heard the internet likes bullet points, here are some bullet points: pros - detailed training, lots of repetition so things get committed to muscle memory - classes are long enough that there's plenty of time for drilling and sparring. (Almost all other schools have 1 hour for both which ends up in a situation where you rush through drilling and rush through sparring.) - great community, great atmosphere, great variety of training partners - I've only been here a short time but it is pretty clear to me that Scott is invested in his students' development - clean gym, plenty of parking cons - none? - there is a little dog that hangs out on the couch by the mats and snores like a large human

This place is great. Everyone's very chill and the head instructor is super cool. They're open-minded about all techniques and the level of jiu jitsu is very high. It's a really relaxed environment and you will have a lot of fun while getting a crazy workout. They will push you to get out of your comfort zone but always in a positive way. Whether you just want something fun to do or you want to take your game to the next level, there's something for everyone here.

10th Planet West LA has been my home for over a year now. Scott Epstein, the head instructor is an accomplished Mixed Martial Artist and BJJ black belt competitor who has first-hand experience in the real-world application of the techniques he teaches. Scott is a no-nonsense, detail-oriented, and dedicated teacher, and is in the gym day in and day out, making sure that his students are picking up the technique properly. Also, if you have a penchant for ironic humor and sarcasm, you'll do well here. I have made some really great friends at this gym, and the laid-back, friendly atmosphere is what keeps me coming back. Purple belt Assistant instructor Michael "Tips" Venturella compliments the advanced instruction very well with his fundamentals class. He is an extraordinarily patient teacher and does a great job at explaining the concepts behind each technique. If you want to learn self-defense, get in shape, and get a better understanding of the No-Gi ground-game, 10th Planet West LA is the best place to do that in this area. In a year, I've gone from gasping for breath and being utterly lost-- to having a greater sense of confidence, competing in amateur grappling, and becoming part of a team with amazing friends and mentors.

I started training at 10th Planet West LA about a month ago. To make a long story short, I make the commute from Long Beach to West LA three times a week to get quality no-gi jiu jitsu training, quality self-defense training, and quality strength and conditioning training. There is no comparison to 10th Planet, its quality and top of the line. I started to train because I want to be able to defend myself, my family, and my loved ones in case anything were to ever go down. 10th Planet blesses me with the tools to feel confident if any dangerous scenarios were to arise. Since I started training: my outlook on life has changed, my passion for jiu jitsu has grown, my technique has improved, I have gotten stronger, lost weight, and I feel as if I have a jiu jitsu family. The instructors are friendly, it is a serious but also very welcoming and friendly environment. If you are looking to get in shape, get strong mentally/physically, be dedicated, and grow into a fun and loving jiu jitsu community/family then absolutely come check out the gym.

Joined this gym unsure of what to expect. I was more than happy with what was found. This gym offers a clean facility with ample space for your gym bags and showers. Another plus is free packing in the lot, garage, or on the street. Best of all is the top level instruction and attention to detail by instructor, Scott Epstein. You will not be disappointed! For any women who may be hesistant, we have a strong group of female teammates of different levels who can help. You have nothing to lose be everything to gain.

Scott and the rest of the team at 10pWLA are an awesome crew. They're friendly, even to uncoordinated new guys like me. The gym has a supportive vibe - we feel like teammates who are all helping each other get better, not like people who are trying to beat each other up. (Well, we are trying to beat each other up, but, you know, constructively.) The atmosphere is fun but definitely not unserious, and it's full of solid, good people. The first place I'd send anyone who wants to get into BJJ.

Scott Epstein is one of the premier instructors of the 10th Planet System who has trained directly under Eddie Bravo. At his gym 10th Planet West LA you will have access to a clean & well maintained facility with showers and multiple classes a week that range from beginner to advanced competitor. I personally started jiu jitsu with no mat experience at 265 pounds. In 1 year's time I have lost over 80 pounds while training with Scott and am now participating regularly in State wide competitions across California. Come to West LA, we have a great community, a relaxed training environment and an awesome facility. You will make friends, gain confidence, tone your body like you've never imagined (with hard work, no gains from being lazy), and enter a lifestyle that will make you wish you found jiu jitsu years ago.

Scott's attention to detail is world renowned. His knowledge of not only jiu jitsu and MMA, but nutrition and strength conditioning is insurmountable. UFC fighters to movie stars all seek out Scott's methods of training. The proof is in his students on any given weekend you'll find them at jiu hitsu tournaments submitting opponents and bringing home medals. You will NOT find a better, cleaner place to train in West LA. Give his classes a try. It WILL change your life!
