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

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.

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.

Scott has changed my life with his teaching. No joke. I started army combatives (while in the army) back in 2006, kind of liked it but knew it was not getting me anywhere. ried GI jiu jitsu back in 2010 and had a similiar experience. I was getting good but never staying consistent with technique. Scott changed everything I thought I knew about jiu jitsu last year when I came to10th planet west la. His approach, style, and coaching have brought my competitive edge back and made me addicted to jiu jitsu again.

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 is really one of the best gyms in LA. You get amazing instruction from all classes no matter what level you happen to be and every instructor is excited and willing to help you grow. Scott is great instructor and makes all the work you put in feel worth it. The Facilities are well maintained with everything you need right on site. if you're looking to start out doing jiujitsu as a beginner or youve been on the mats for a long time, 10th planet is hands down the place you should be.

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.

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.
