    Please bring 10th Planet BJJ to NYC!

    The NYC nogi bjj scene is horrible. There is no gym that even offers nogi classes more than 2 nights a week. And none of them teach the 10th planet system, which is far superior to traditional nogi bjj. How can I live in the biggest city in the world and be faced with this dilemma? Please Eddie, establish a gym in NYC and it will pay huge dividends, I assure you. You will siphon off a large percentage of the students from the 10 or so schools in NYC, because students want to evolve. Please make my dream come true. Thanks!

    Thanks for the promo Charlemagne, but Rochester is about 6 hours away from NYC. I'd say, start a hotbox reachnick2012. Network on message boards and see who in the city would be down to start a hotbox.

    Thanks for the advice. I don't see what the impediment to opening a gym up in NYC is though. There's a lot less populous places with a 10th planet gym (st. louis, el paso, chicago, sherman?!, portland, etc...). The students are here, the demand is here, but the gym is not...It just seems like a huge wasted opportunity to me, but maybe there is some hidden logic behind the choice to stay out of NYC that i'm not privy to.

    Eddie owns and operates one school. Who do you think is going to teach at the NY school? Should he fly back and fourth between the two schools?

    Master Eddie isn't the one who builds the gyms. It's local places that set up an affiliate. The opportunity is there, but no one is setting one up.

    That's a pretty solid no gi schedule if you ask me and qualifies a little above a "horrible" jj scene.

    But hey if you are Dead set on learning from Eddie upgrade your account for only $5 a month(the price of a burger) and I promise you won't be disappointed.
