Our Reviews

I am a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blackbelt and have been training for nearly 14 years. I know what a great coach and training environment looks like and this is it. Professor Stephen has leveled up my game by adding techniques and fine tuning details. Whether you are beginning your Jiu Jitsu journey or you’ve been in the game a while this is an amazing place to train.

If you wish to learn an extremely effective self defense martial art, look no further than 10th planet Jiu Jitsu. Professor Stephen and Coach Jimmy have 30+ years combined experience in the grappling arts, and both are very fun to train with! The atmosphere is very friendly and ego-free, and trust me, you will get humbled very quickly! I definitely recommend this gym.

Awesome jiujitsu academy! Stephen is a world class instructor! Great family atmosphere friendly and clean.
’ll put it this way: if I lived next door to a different Jiu Jitsu school and Steve’s gym was an hour away, I would still train at Steve’s gym. I can’t recommend him enough. He’s a great coach and a great person. He always acts with integrity and cares for his students. There are a lot of scumbags in the Jiu Jitsu world, so for me integrity is crucial. Especially when considering where to send your kids to train. There’s no one I’d trust more than Steve.

Stephen does a great job of creating a relaxed atmosphere that’s enjoyable to learn in. Very professional and family friendly. He’s super knowledgeable, very helpful, and just a great guy to be around. He breaks down every move so everyone can understand. Exactly what I’ve been looking for!

I love this place! You will feel like family! If you’ve never stepped on a mat or if you lived on one you will still learn so much! You will feel like you belong there. Like you’re a part of something bigger than yourself! 10th Planet Perry! Stephen is the man!

The owner, Professor Stephen, is a high level black belt and professional mixed martial artist. His gym allows for students of all levels to learn, hone, and test their skills in an environment free from egos or drama. Come check out Stephen’s new spot out in Perry, GA.

Having binge watched Cobra Kai on Netflix, I became enthralled with the martial arts, especially Kara-Tay. I walked in and met Stephen. Sensei Stephen (he prefers I don’t call him that) told me he doesn’t teach UFC or Kara-Tay, but instead specializes in No-gi Jiu-Jitsu. (No-gi just means you don’t wear a kimono, not that you’re wearing nothing. Apparently it makes other people feel more comfortable). I signed up and wow, all I can say is that Sensei Stephen possesses a wealth of knowledge, first-hand fighting experience, and the ability to transfer this knowledge to others, no matter what your IQ is.

Amazing facility with programs for all ages and skill levels run by a professional athlete that has competed and applied his martial arts at the highest levels of mixed martial arts, Brazilian jiu jitsu, and submission grappling! THAT makes the training at 10th Planet Perry location second to none in the area.

Coach Stephen Eakin is as good as it gets!

Great place for adults and kids a like. Made to feel part of the family and Stephen caters to all levels. So many time options available
Whether u are beginner or high level, 10th Planet Perry is definitely the place to be.

My son and I had never done Jiu Jitsu that didn’t matter to coach Stephen, he welcomed us with open arms and now we both love it. Great place for adults and children.
