​​ 10PWSD is a self defense program based on the 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu system of grappling and we are on a mission to empower all women with confidence and self defense skills. We offer one day seminars and six week programs of intensive training, taught by women for women. Our style emphasizes escapes and implementing techniques off our backs.
 By arming you with practical and easy applied grappling techniques we show just how powerful you can be even in "worst case scenario" positions.

About us
We became training partners and fast friends 11 years ago in a Muay Thai (Thai kickboxing) class. Shortly after we added 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu to our martial arts practice, becoming two of the first and highest ranked female students under our master Eddie Bravo at 10PJJ HQ. After a decade of pushing one another, and experiencing the metamorphosis jiu jitsu has given both of us, we knew we had to share our found passion with other women. We formed 10PWSD to be ambassadors of jiu jitsu, not only for self defense and as a sport but most importantly as a way to help other women discover their own power     -Dawna and Lila

Meet Eddie Bravo, founder of 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu 

When it comes to Women's Self Defense, he believes that it is important for a woman to know how to defend herself when she is in the worst possible position- on her back. Luckily working off the back is what he is known for! Eddie has trained top level UFC fighters and world class jiu jitsu champions to not only be proficient at defense while on their back, but more importantly to be dangerous from there. He has instilled these techniques in the 10PWSD coaches and is excited for them to now pass that on to you.
