10th Planet Gulf Shores, AL

10th Planet Gulf Shores Head Instructor Josh Yelverton first found Jiu-Jitsu in the form of MMA at the age of 13 in a small gym in Jemison, AL. He was hooked immediately, and couldn’t get enough of it. After training casually and sporadically for several years, he withdrew from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and moved to Gulf Shores, AL to focus and train under then blue belt Sean Applegate at the original 10th Planet Gulf Shores in hopes of one day opening his own school. After a decade of training and tutelage under Sean (and the influence of many other phenomenal martial artists), Josh was recognized as one of the six first 10th Planet Black Belts awarded by Sean Applegate. Along the way, he has garnered much competitive success (holding wins over F2W and IBJJF brown and black belt champions, as well as veterans of EBI and ADCC). Josh also has multiple years of experience as an instructor to children and adults alike, and as a coach to athletes in both Jiu-Jitsu and MMA competition.
