10th Planet Vista, California, is ran by Sean Bollinger, an Eddie Bravo Black Belt, Ryan Fortin, and Geovanny Martinez. Together this trifecta form a perfect balance of Logic, Balance, and Power. Sean Bollinger is a profound instructor, who’s roots trace back to the legendary Royce Gracie, and who’s accomplishments in the 10th Planet system have made him a rubber guard master. He focuses his teachings on strong technique, flexibility, breathing, self control, and has a large emphasis on having an open mind.
Ryan Fortin is a Blue Belt under Sean, and is the Assistant Instructor. He began his training in 2004, and through the years became tired of the politics. In 2009, as a White Belt, he opened his own Jiu Jitsu Acadamey, and this never ending ambition led him to Sean. Together they believe with solid technique, an open mind, and self control new worlds will open for the Jiu Jitsu Practioner. This is where Geovanny Martinez, a self taught breakdancer, who dropped out of school to pursue his dreams, comes in.
10th Planet Vista believes that the core strenghth developed through breakdancing, and the complex patterns created by the mind to move the body to music with rythmn is tool gone unnoticed by the Jiu Jitsu community. At 10th Planet Vista, we not only teach Jiu Jitsu, and Women’s Self Defense, but also Breakdancing, and Salsa Classes.
