At 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Sylmar, our philosophy here is simple: Train hard, have fun, push yourself a little harder each time, and leave it all on the mat. Check your ego at the door or we will be checking it for you. Located out of Suicide Boxing, owner Diego Lopez provides an intense cardio workout based on his years of experience as a boxer and even takes the time to train in 10th PJJ. Our gym is very much a family and we share that sense of unity whenever we train or compete. Monthly rates, day passes, and private classes are available.
