“Jiu Jitsu is not a martial art,
it’s literally a way of seeing life with better eyes”– Jean Jacques Machado


We teach a structured program, of control leading to submission

All of our programs are 100% NO-Gi which means we do not train with the traditional kimono.

Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

Joined just over a year ago, and it’s been one of my best decisions! Love the atmosphere, love the people, love my coach! Everyone is very knowledgeable and helpful. If you live in or near central Ohio this is definitely the place you should be training!


I absolutely love the class structure! The format makes it easy to learn new techniques. It’s very welcoming of newcomers, and the classes seems to just fly by. It doesn’t matter when you start, you can jump right in and pick it up fairly quickly. I would highly recommend this to anyone …


Started here at 45 years old and terribly out of shape. It has been a great experience. Jon is an amazing instructor and very knowledgeable. The people that go to classes here are very nice and everyone is extremely helpful. I could not recommend 10th Planet Newark more!
