Our Adults classes are for both men and women, ages 16 and up.
BJJ is a world-renowned full-contact, self-defense martial art based on grappling, submission holds, and ground-fighting. The premise of BJJ is that, through training, a smaller opponent can always defeat a larger adversary by isolating their limbs or neck.
But don’t let that scare you!
Our instructors are highly trained, deeply experienced, and just plain fun to be around. You are always under capable and safe direction at 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu San Mateo.
World-class instruction - Many of our instructors were trained under the founder and 1st-degree blackbelt Adam Sachnoff. They are a combination of champion competitors and high-level black, brown, and purple belts.
Positive, encouraging environment - You won’t get drill sergeant coaching at 10th Planet San Mateo. We believe creating a positive and encouraging environment keeps our students motivated and open to learning and improving their skillset.
Life-long community - Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a life-long pursuit and you'll find enthusiasts to connect with everywhere you go. The community at 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu San Mateo is always welcoming new friends and creating life-changing transformations.
Fitness - Jiu Jitsu works your entire body and especially your core. You’ll lose weight, build muscle, strengthen your cardiovascular health, and more.
Focus - Because of the nature of grappling and performing submission holds, BJJ is great for conditioning focus. A healthy side effect of training is the mental clarity you develop. BJJ requires intense focus to remain calm and in the moment so that you can neutralize your opponent. It’s like a chess game that involves the entire body.
Confidence - As you meet and exceed your goals and learn to protect yourself, you’ll gain confidence that translates inside and outside the gym.
In the Adults Beginner class, we’ll go through the basics of Jiu Jitsu and get you used to the movements. You’ll learn to optimize your mindset, incorporate best practices, and master foundational moves. We’ll start by conditioning your body and gradually progress in difficulty as you master each move. All beginners start out as white belts.
In the Adults Advanced Jiu Jitsu classes, we up the intensity to build on your prior knowledge and challenge you to push past your goals. You’ll learn new skills, improve your movement efficiency, and strengthen your entire body.
