10th Planet Richmond, KY

10th Planet Richmond is headed up by head instructor Scott Elliott. Scott has spent nearly his entire life in martial arts starting with wrestling as a kid and eventually adding the study of various martial arts. He joined the army in 1987 as a Cav Scout/Recon and eventually became a Drill Sgt. and trained troops for Desert Storm. After getting out of the military he opened his MMA gym in 1994 after seeing the first UFC and continued studying martial arts with legendary masters like Dan Inosanto, Ajarn Chai Sirisute, Jean Jaques Machado, Erik Paulson and Salem Assli. Over the following years, he earned instructor certifications in Muay Thai, Jun Fan/JKD, Kali, Silat, Savate and Combat Submission Wrestling and still trains with many of his instructors to this day always seeking to increase his knowledge and stay on the cutting edge.

After Scott heard of Royler Gracie being tapped out by Eddie in 2003, Scott became intrigued by Eddie’s techniques and philosophies of Jiu Jitsu. He scrambled for anything he could find to learn more about his technique and started collecting any articles, clips and eventually books and videos to start incorporating his special brand of Jiu Jitsu into his teaching curriculum. After adding more and more of the 10th Planet system to his teaching, he finally decided to go all the way and become an official affiliate and help the system grow.

Now, Scott runs his gym as well as teaching college accredited courses in Muay Thai, MMA and BJJ at Eastern Kentucky University. He will soon be teaching the first college accredited course in 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu.
