I just started taking Jiu Jitsu classes from Big Red and before that I didn’t really do much physical activity. After just a few classes so far all I can say is I love it! Wow who would of thought I would be doing martial arts! I feel great and have new excitement in my life and I am really thankful I found big red and can’t wait to continue to learn from him!

If you want to learn jiu jitsu do it already and come to 10th Planet San Mateo. Big Red is a world champion and a great instructor, who will improve your game no matter what level you are at. Everyone here wants to improve and wants to help you improve. Very good atmosphere. I was nervous before my first class but now its my home away from home.

I have been learning from Adam Sachnoff for years. He is a very detail oriented and professional teacher. As a competitor he has helped me reach the podium on numerous occasions.

If you get a chance to learn from him, take it!

Alex C.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Adam is both extremely knowledgeable in Jiu-Jitsu and equally important, quite good at breaking that complicated and detailed knowledge into digestible chunks that even beginners can quickly grasp and start to use to improve their jiu-jitsu skills immediately. Learning how to grapple is never easy, but it becomes much less challenging when you have an excellent source of instruction and experience to draw from. Adam (a.k.a Big Red) is both.

Scot M.

Awesome facility and an incredible instructor! Adam is a world champion competitor and a great teacher. If you are in the San Mateo area this is the place to train!

Adlai C.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Adam is a great instructor – even if you have never trained a martial art or are out of shape he helps the whole class and focuses on improving everyone’s skills. The training partners are friendly, welcoming, and willing to help everyone out. While it has been one of the most challenging things I have ever done , I can’t recommend this gym highly enough.

Mike S.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

I love this school. Adam is an outstanding teacher and the techniques he explains and demonstrates are really good. Beginners are learning jiujitsu amazingly fast and experienced students are picking up moves and details they have never seen before. All of this happens within a safe, friendly, professional, clean environment. I highly recommend this school to students of all levels. Don’t take my word for it, come in for a free week of training and see for yourself.

Although I was a bit intimidated by the thought of trying Jiu Jitsu I was quickly put at ease. Adam better known as “Big Red”, always adjusted our sessions to my ability and comfort level. Best of all He kept it fun by always cracking jokes. I would definitely recommend him for those new to the sport!

Camille W.

I’ve known Adam Sachnoff since I was in college. He taught our Jiu Jitsu program there. It’s always an honor to learn from athletes like Sachnoff. He has a lot of knowledge to share. On and off the mat, he’s a good man with countless accomplishments as a teacher and as a competitor.

Aaron B.

Did my first class here today, hopefully there will be many more to come. Adam is a great trainer for anyone from beginner to advanced. Had a blast my first class!

Angel L.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Adam is an amazing instructor, competitor and all around good guy. Such a great coach who is extremely detail orientated, very articulate, patient and very positive (dude always has a smile on his face). So if you live anywhere in the Bay Area get over to this world champions spot and learn some new techniques and have a great time.

Shane C.

If your looking for a great NoGi Jiu Jitsu program this is the place to be great instructors and great prices… The head instructor Adam is one of the top competitors in the 10th Planet JJ system try one of his classes out and you won’t be disappointed.

Geovanny M.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

“Big Red” aka Adam Sachnoff is a beast! After studying Jiu Jitsu for many years and going through my share of trainers, “Red” has sure been my favorite. He is fun, caring, and very knowledgeable in the art of Jiu Jitsu. I always thought I was a top notch grappler, until I met Adam. He has very impressive grappling skills and I have yet to beat him in a match. If you are interested in practicing Jiu Jitsu with a world champion Jiu Jitsu beast, Adam is your man.

Maximillion H.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

As a beginner and a female it can be intimidating to train Jiu Jitsu, which is a predominately male sport. Big Red instantly made me feel comfortable. When I started I was having trouble learning my hip escapes, Big Red pulled me aside and made sure that I got it right before moving on. I highly recommend Big Red, he is great with beginners, is a world champion and has the most affordable rates in the San Mateo area!

Sammi H.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Great instruction, welcoming atmosphere. Adam’s teaching style is very detailed and technical. If you dig no-gi Jiu Jitsu this is place to go. Awesome.

John O.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Clean, safe and fun atmosphere with professional instruction. Adam is one of the most recognized competitors in the 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu System. Whether you just looking to get in shape, self-defense, or looking to compete or fight MMA this is the school for you. 5 stars!

Chris H.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Adam is both a world class competitor and instructor. Adam has helped my Jiu Jitsu a tremendous amount. Anyone from a beginner with no experienced to advanced will learn a lot here. The gym has a good environment good energy and a instructor who truly cares about his students. If your looking to learn Jiu Jitsu this is the place you will want to train at.

Mike D.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Best place to train in the peninsula area hands down. You’re learning from a world class grappler in Adam, and a wealth of experience from Gregor and Paul. Everyone here is super friendly and helpful. Great for your first class and great if you’re just looking to improve your game.

Alan S.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Been training in Adam’s classes for almost 3 months now, not only is he great at teaching detailed techniques, but we also learn in a fun, safe environment. There’s a plethora of class times available to fit any schedule! It’s also great knowing you’re learning from a world class grappler. Highly recommended!

Christopher W.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Great group of guys. There are no egos here. Humble guys that want to help you improve your jiu jitsu game. Adam is awesome! he’s really insightful down to earth and knows his shit! This trainers are hard to come by. What a great a experience.

Johnny C.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Best workout from head to toes at every session. Anyone can do it. I’m 5″11, close to 300lbs and very out of shape.

If you’re sick and tired of ego heavy, fake people hanging out and occupying a machine you want to work on? Are you worn out of using the same traditional, boring workouts? Want to get the best results strength training and weight loss with the best trainers every session (and also learn No-Gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu)? Then 10th Planet San Mateo is the place for you.

If you’re skeptical about the classes, 10th Planet offers an introductory class for free. You’ve got nothing to lose, just show up.

Seymour B.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

I’ve been watching UFC since 1993 and have trained various martial arts through the years (TKD, boxing, kickboxing, muay thai, capoeira) and this has by far been my favorite martial art to learn. It is extremely technical and the instructors there are very patient and great at explaining how all the moves piece together.

Having great instructors is only one part of the equation, having great people to train with is the other. At 10th Planet, everyone is extremely friendly and open and have really helped me increase my skill level while keeping the training fun and engaging.

If you want to learn BJJ or just want to get in shape, 10th Planet is a great place to start and expand your grappling game. Best investment I’ve made in myself in a long time!

Seibo S.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

I’ve been going for several months and my experience overall has been great. I leave every class feeling like I learned, I worked my butt off, and I had fun with great people.

Adam is a very knowledgeable instructor who keeps the class fun, focused, and safe. I’d recommend 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu for anyone (men and women) who wants to learn real self-defense with great people.

Manny S.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

I came to Adam with zero experience with Jiu Jitsu and literally knew nothing about it. He helped me learn the basics and made me feel very comfortable in class. He knows his stuff and makes it fun too! I highly recommend seeing Adam if you want to learn about Jiu Jitsu. He is the best in the area by far!

Zach T.

If you want to learn Jiu Jitsu then Big Red is the man to teach you!

Sam S.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

I always wanted to train in Jiu Jitsu. But, fear of the unknowing scared me. When this location opened up down the street from me. I had to put my fears aside and try it out. From the moment I started. I knew this place was going to be great. Adam’s ability to coach and encourage is second to none. The camaraderie and respect with the other students is amazing.

So, put your fears away and come in. You will not be disappointed. You will get in shape and will learn a ton about yourself.

There is so much to say about 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu San Mateo that I could easily write a book but I will speak about the following areas for reference 1) 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu, 2) Adam Sachnoff, 3) the classes, 4) the family

10th Planet Jiu Jitsu

If you have ever heard the name before, you probably know this is a well known no-gi jitsu school. They have a network of schools through out the US and if you are going to compete in a no-gi tournament, chances are you will have to fight against a 10th planet guy. I have yet to go to any other 10th planet gym but can tell you from experience that people that are in the 10th planet system are incredible people overall. Zero ego and always wanting to learn is something that is prevalent in the schooling system. Every 10th planet person I have met has just been fantastic human being.

Adam Sachnoff

With that being said, 10th Planet San Mateo was branched off from 10th Planet San Francisco. Adam is 10th Planet SF’s first black belt under Denny. Adam is a highly decorated grappler and no-gi competitor and has won most of competitions.

However, for lack of a better word, Adam is a vanguard in grappling & jiu jitsu. When I first join 10th Planet – I had no idea what to expect but having been going for almost a year, Adam has shown me techniques that have increased the effectiveness of my game – not just in no gi but gi as well. Adam is patient and really cares for his students. To him you are not a paying customer, you are his student and he really goes the extra mile to make sure you feel comfortable and that you are continually growing as an individual. There is no stupid question in class and he is always makes himself available. Furthermore, he also practices what he preaches – you can see him competing (and winning!).

Last, Adam is just a fantastic human being. A great teacher, mentor, friend, the lists goes on for Adam’s ability to captivate an audience and evangelize the gentle art of grappling.

Classes

Usually the format for the week is a move of the week that is practiced for a week. Format for classes is warm ups, drills, the move of the week, situational sparring and then open roll.

The classes are technical but Adam breaks them down into digestible pieces. He makes sure everyone is understand the concepts and takes extra time for individuals that may need help. Let me say, I like to consider myself a top game player, but going to Adam’s class, my bottom game has also gotten significantly better.

No worries about hitting the move the first try, the move is practices throughout the week so you will have plenty of practice. Classes are also safe and fun.

The Family

Apart from great training from an incredible teacher, you also get something that you can never replace – family. People in the 10th Planet system become an extended part of your family. Everyone in the class makes an effort to make sure you are safe, having fun, and enjoying yourself. Don’t get something? Ask anyone. Can’t hit a move? Anyone in the class is more than happy to drill with you. Confused on anything? No worries, we are all here for you.

I can literally go on about this place, but come here to learn from a world class leader in jiu jitsu with people that want to learn in an environment that is safe and nurturing. See you soon.

Protip: Worried that there is just a bunch of meat heads that want to break you in half? Not here, only people that want to help you grow physically and mentally

I dropped in a few times here, Big Red and the whole crew are amazing and very welcoming. Excellent instruction and an overall great atmosphere. Usually when I drop into gyms people always ask where else you train and judge you and BJJ politics ruin everything. I can’t stress how refreshing it was to be welcomed by the people of 10th planet. Everyone here is so down to earth, probably some of the coolest people you’ll ever come across in life. I definitely plan to swing by again sometime.

Jonathan S.

Adam is a very knowledgeable instructor who is very generous with his knowledge of techniques. 10th planet san mateo is a great price for the number of classes available. Highly recommended.

Ken C.

Adam is a detailed but approachable instructor and a fierce competitor. He does a great job of fostering a fun learning environment.

Leonard C.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

After spending several months searching for the perfect place to train BJJ I was immediately impressed with 10th planet San Mateo. Adam is an excellent instructor with plenty of competitive accomplishments to validate his knowledge of the art.

Classes are balanced between warm-up drills and stretching, drilling new techniques, and live sparring (or rolling). I have found that this class structure is ideal for both increasing ones knowledge of Jiu Jitsu as well as providing adequate time for students to practice this knowledge in live situations.

Furthermore, Adam provides a safe and clean environment to learn in, and students of all skill levels are sure to see the value his teaching approach.

COME TRAIN IT’S TOO MUCH FUN NOT TO!
