View Full Version : New York City area 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu training
08-24-2010, 06:42 AM
Let's get a roll call of anyone who's interested in 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu in the NYC area. I would be willing to work something out to get a location if anyone is interested. I would need at least 5 or 6 people to make it happen, or a couple people interested in privates. I have to work out the details, but I could get this going if we had some people interested.
Let me know on the forum, e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or my cell: 860-989-1419

I would absolutely be interested. What else would we need to get something going?
08-24-2010, 07:16 AM
Definitely interested. I know there was at least one other guy asking about a NYC 10th planet.
08-24-2010, 07:36 AM
I just need at least 5 or 6 students. I'll work it out with Phil to see about subletting some space in his new academy, but if we have enough interest, or even enough for some semi privates, it would be viable for me to get down there for a couple classes a week.

Where would the place be located im definetly down and id help out anyway i can
08-24-2010, 08:46 AM
I think John was referring to the new location for The Wat. They just moved to 291 Broadway (off Canal by the A,C,E or 1). Correct me if I'm wrong
08-24-2010, 09:15 AM
I'd be very interested. I already go to the Wat, it would be great to go do some 10th planet there as well.
08-24-2010, 10:41 AM
Yes, the Wat is the location. I haven't cleared it with Phil yet, but I expect to talk to him after the UFC this weekend. I've been a student of Phil's for almost 20 years. If you already go to The Wat, definitely put the bug in his ear when you go.
08-24-2010, 12:11 PM
I would definitely be interested. Keep us posted! Thanks

I'm on long island, and would definitely be interested!! I have the Mastering the Rubber Guard Book and DVD's and I train at some jiu jits school on long island, it's predominately gi!.. Every chance I get I'm constantly trying 10thplanet techniques out in class, and alot of the students are like .. what was that .. lol.. I also drill alot of the basics on a grappling dummy i got from submission master.. it helps out alot, but i really need a few dedicated cats like myself who wanna represent 10th planet in NYC or Long Island
08-24-2010, 07:12 PM
I would definetly be there if it goes down
08-25-2010, 05:51 AM
Good to see all this positive response. Thanks! Everyone keep this high on the forum and sit tight. After UFC this weekend, I'll be speaking with Kru Phil about it. No guarantees, but we have a great relationship, so I'm sure we can figure something out.
08-25-2010, 08:13 AM
If it doesnt workout at the wat i might have a place for you if your interested Chok Sabia on 30th might be something to look into a friend of mine owns and runs the place
08-30-2010, 03:59 PM
any word on this ?
09-01-2010, 03:57 PM
DEFINITELY INTERESTED. But I work crazy hours (midnight to 0800). Please keep us posted.
09-03-2010, 04:55 AM
I'm hoping to speak with Phil tonight or over the weekend. Had to give him time after last weekend.
09-03-2010, 05:28 AM
thanks for the update
09-05-2010, 06:26 PM
I would be interested as well. Mark 516-909-4004.
09-07-2010, 01:36 PM
I would like to train with you.
09-07-2010, 03:53 PM
I in pa but would drive up 2 hours to nyc for that
09-07-2010, 08:14 PM
Ok, from the e-mails and replies on this thread, it looks like we have a contingent. I have spoken to Phil and I'm just waiting to hear back from him, hopefully Wednesday or Thursday. If I can get 10 confirmed for at least a first session/demo for Phil, this could happen. So, if everyone interested could e-mail me directly @ email@example.com, I can get a roster with your e-mail addresses to keep you all in the loop. Sound cool?
09-08-2010, 07:39 AM
This sounds great. Thanks John
09-09-2010, 06:55 AM
Just a reminder: as I work to make this happen, e-mail me so that I may compile a list of students, and also feel free to hit me up on facebook. Either my personal page or fan page for 10th Planet Hartford.
09-09-2010, 09:02 AM
I in pa but would drive up 2 hours to nyc for that
If you are in PA, why wouldnt you come to DE. We are right over the DE MemorIAL Bridge...I have tons of guys from PA and NJ.

You guys may want to check out the Vee Arnis Jitsu school in Brooklyn (across from Kings Plaza) http://www.veearnisjitsu.com/
The head instructor there, Professor David James is very cool, and I'm pretty sure he'd be open to renting space to an outside organization. You could probably schedule weekly time there. The phone number for the school is easy to find on the website. Professor David James used to host Marcos Santos' Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy in Manhattan for several years and the partnership went well from all I have heard.
09-26-2010, 02:38 PM
Hey all, still interested in NYC 10th Planet!
Roderick, I just sent you an email to get on the roster and friended the Hartford school on facebook. Maybe you could throw up a link on here for your personal facebook page?
09-27-2010, 07:15 AM
here's the link: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/JRoderickIV?ref=profile&v=info
Or just look up John Roderick and look for the Captain America avatar :).
I'm currently compiling a list and working with Kru Phil on some details. Thanks for info on alternative locations if we need them. I think things will work out.
And as Kevin said, there are locations all around, I just offered this up as there was nothing for 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu in the city, and I know with guys like Marcelo and Renzo there, it's pretty stacked. This is something as much for Phil as to promote 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu in NYC.
09-27-2010, 12:04 PM
Im teaching two nights a week at www.choksabaigym.com anyone who wants to come train feel free to come through we are a 10th planet friendly school, hopefully one day ill be able to get an Affiliation going and turn this place into a fully blown 10th planet School....
09-29-2010, 08:31 AM
Anyone want to come train class starts friday at 7pm come through check the website
09-29-2010, 10:16 AM

09-29-2010, 10:17 AM
ok figured it out.. This is the correct address (i think). :o)
09-29-2010, 12:13 PM
Yeah sorry thats the right one...
10-23-2010, 06:57 AM
Hi is this the only place that teaches 10th planet Jiujitsu. Or are there other schools going to open in the NYC area?
10-23-2010, 07:31 AM
John is working on getting a Real 10th Planet School here in NYC my school is a 10th Planet friendly school and im a Marcelo Garcia student as well as a student of the 10th planet student, one day i hope to become an instructor as well. As of right now John is working on it dont know any info but you can try and reach out to him as i have
10-23-2010, 09:53 AM
How do i get in touch with John? This would be a great help to me. Thanks.
10-23-2010, 10:14 AM

10-23-2010, 06:32 PM
thank i did not notice.
10-25-2010, 02:19 PM
Ok, making some headway. I Just discussed this with Kru Phil. He's still down. We're looking at a weekday starting around 8:30 PM. We're going to do a trial run first (most likely) to gauge interest and get a head count. Stand by-it's coming!!
10-26-2010, 05:56 AM
sounds good coach!
Really looking forward to this!
11-08-2010, 10:58 AM
Hey, just wanted to know if there was any updates regarding the NYC 10planet?
11-18-2010, 11:23 AM
11-18-2010, 03:11 PM
I'll definitely come down on occasion, it's just an hour and a half drive to Albany and a train ride down to NYC for me.
12-02-2010, 05:09 AM
Good morning and Happy Holidays everyone. Sorry, but I have been off-grid for a bit trying to take care of some personal business. Here is a quick update: The Wat doesn't look like it's going to pan out as a consistent place due to scheduling. However, how about organizing a workshop or small seminar if one of you interested can get approval to use a space. Contact me in order to work out the details and pricing. If we could work something out to organize a training group once a month for me to come down, that would be a start until a steady place is located.
12-02-2010, 06:30 AM
oh boo this is upsetting =-(
02-25-2011, 12:33 PM
I'm in NJ but interested. I keep an eye on the site. My e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
02-25-2011, 12:35 PM
I posted before reading all the way through. That sucks.
05-18-2011, 01:27 PM
Any progress or new updates on this potential project?
04-15-2012, 01:13 AM
Anybody mention Fighthouse? You can start off as a once a month thing between a couple of guys and see where it goes from there.
