Stronger. Safer. Empowered.

10PWSD is a self defense program based on the 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu system of grappling. Our mission is 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 proven effective, practical grappling techniques we show just how powerful you can be even in "worst case scenario" positions.  
Leave feeling stronger, safer, empowered...BADASS.​

We became training partners and fast friends in a MuayThai (Thai kickboxing) class in 2007. Shortly after we added 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu to our martial arts practice, becoming two of the first female students to train under our master Eddie Bravo and earn the rank of brown belt. After a decade of pushing one another, and experiencing the empowering metamorphosis jiu jitsu has given both of us, we knew we had to share our found passion with other women. We formed 10PWSD in 2016 to become ambassadors to 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.

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.
