10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu


Travis Wright was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska.  In 1999 he moved out to Southern California where he received his BA degree at La Sierra University in business management. While in California he was introduced to the 10th Planet system.  Training with black belt Jeremy Fields, Sean Bollinger and Eddie Bravo opened his mind to the possibilities of the never ending game of Jiu-Jitsu.  He has been training 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu for 12+ years now.  Furthermore, training with top athletes like Drysdale, Gary Tonon and Jeff Glover has given him new perspective in the game.  He has competed in big events like NAGA, Grapplers Quest, Best of the west, Grappling XGames, Submission Challenge and the Cornhusker State games.  He also wanted to test first hand if the system could transfer into MMA, and as expected he was highly successful with 6 submission finishes inside the cage.
