10th Planet Costa Mesa
10th Planet Costa Mesa is part of a trinity of gyms located in Orange County, 10th Planet Buena Park and 10th Planet Orange being the other two. All three gyms operate as one. If three gyms for the price of one, is not enough, there are also two full time Eddie Bravo Black Belts (Ron Turner and Casey Halstead). On any given day you may run into UFC fighters such as Mark Munoz, Cain Carrizosa, Diego Rivas and Tony Ferguson.
Ron has been training Jiu Jitsu since 1994. He has professional MMA fights local and abroad. With 20years of experience Ron has achieved many milestones. He received his Black Belt under Master Eddie Bravo, and also holds a traditional BJJ Black Belt under his former instructor.
In 2009 Ron started Subtec MMA. Subtec MMA quickly started to make noise on the local grappling and amateur MMA scene.
2012 was the year that changed the game in Orange County when Subtec MMA became 10th Planet Costa Mesa.
With his passion for art, Ron also is a professional tattoo artist. He uses that creativity to enhance his Jiu Jitsu, his teaching style continues to evolve and push the limitations that traditionalist try to place on Jiu Jitsu.

Originally a mixed martial artist with a boxing foundation, Casey took his Eddie Bravo Jiu Jitsu Black Belt, striking, and wrestling, skills onto the teaching platform. He is the owner and head coach of 10th Planet Costa Mesa, 10th Planet Buena Park, and 10th Planet Orange, while still training under 7th Degree Red and Black Belt Jean Jacques Machado and 10th Planet’s founder Eddie Bravo.
