10th Planet Bergen is the first official 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu affiliate in Norway. The gym is located in Nordneshallen near Bergen city centre. We offer advanced 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu sessions Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, as well as Shootboxing and Combat Jiu Jitsu on Fridays and Open Mat on Saturdays. We also offer pure beginner classes, highly structured, technical, safe and slow paced. Beginner class is called Mastering The Warmups and run every Tuesday and Thursday before advanced class.
The gym is looking to expand to offer more sessions and include wrestling, yoga and general conditioning sessions geared towards MMA, but the core mission of the gym will always be to develop a strong base of fighters for the nogi submission-only format!
*You are welcome to drop by anytime for a friendly chat and/or free trial session in a serious, but chilled atmosphere among great people!
Head Instructor: Frode Nilsen is a 10th Planet brown belt and certified moonhead under Eddie Bravo. Pro MMA fighter, a longtime 10p ronin and student of an array of different grappling arts. He started studying the rubberguard and lockdown-game during shootfighting sessions back in 2006 and was immediately hooked on the unorthodox and creative style of 10p. He has obtained the degree of 1.dan blackbelt in nogi Hokuseishinryu jujutsu and 1.dan blackbelt in Prokick-kickboxing and became the Norwegian champion in Sanshou 2009. Frode also started out with Greco Roman as a kid and has over 15 years of experience from different martial arts. He is also the man behind The Frodoplata-sub which in part led to the development of the Gogoclinch in the 10th Planet system. Frode is known to be a highly technical instructor with great attention to detail, and he will guide you thoroughly through each session, whether you are a beginner or an experienced practitioner.
[Advanced NoGi | 10th planet Jiu Jitsu]
These classes are high paced and very technical. To participate you are required to know the 10P warm up curriculum as we do them on a timer with little to no instruction. After the warm up of the day we usually dive into technical drilling, and/or positional sparring. Classes end with free rolling. At 10P Bergen we don't put any restrictions on submission holds - all subs are legal!
[Gear: Rashguard. Shorts/ Spatz. Mouthguard.]
[MASTERING THE WARM UPS | BEGINNER PROGRAM]
No prior experience needed, perfect for beginners. Slow paced, fun and technical, Mastering The Warm ups is your entry level into the 10th Planet universe. In this class we focus on the 10th Planet warm up curriculum, 8 sets of technical warm ups which need to be mastered. These 8 sets have 4 different flows in each, and focus on different themes in the nogi game. We also do some mobility and movement work, preparing you for the advanced class. At MTW we only do a little positional sparring at the end of each session.
[Gear: Rashguard. Shorts/ Spatz]
[Shootboxing | Combat Jiu Jitsu | Shooto]
This class is more MMA oriented but the main focus is learning to apply your Jiu Jitsu in a full contact, free-fight setting. A lot of things change once striking is introduced, and we believe there's valuable lessons to be learned here. Striking keeps the game honest! These sessions are usually cardio heavy. Padwork, kicking/ punching, takedowns, grappling with strikes, all designed to pressure test your clinch game. Class end with free sparring: Shootboxing, Combat Jiu Jitsu or full Shooto.
[Gear: Boxing gloves. MMA sparring gloves. Thai Shins. Mouthguard.]
[open mat | free play]
Just free play, little to no instruction. Rolling, sparring, drilling, whatever you want.
Starting January 2019. Stay tuned for more info.
Strength and conditioning
If you're serious about your Jiu Jitsu and want to take your game to the highest possible level, you have to get professional with strength and conditioning as well. At 10th Planet Bergen we are lucky to have one of the best strength and conditioning coaches in the country, Tomasz Waszczewski, running his own program at the Dojo. Bstrong, Hardstyle Kettlebells Bergen is the first in Norway to offer kettlebell training in the Strong First method, the golden standard of kettlebell training! They also work bodyweight and mobility +++
"We'll teach you how to BStrong, safely, and without interfering with your duty, job, or sport"
(These classes are NOT included in the 10p Bergen membership, separate contract. And you need to participate in an intro course with Tomasz before you can start)
Tomasz is a very dedicated, and extremely competent coach. If you want to become sportspesific strong + develop general overall strength, then get with his program as soon as possible. Every one of us at 10p Bergen that trains with him has made drastic gains in strength, mobility and fitness level in a relatively short amount of time. He’s also very knowledgeable with regards to recovery from injuries and corrections of physical deficiencies.
