What’s new at 10th Planet Van Nuys?

10th Planet Van Nuys kicked off the year with a bang! On March 17, 2015; Victor Pages and Vlad Kocheiv made their way to the cage for SparStar Promotions. First up was our very own wrestling coach Vlad, who’s been wrestling since he was 8 years old. Vlad dominated the fight with two knockdowns and an awesome suplex that send his opponent flying across the mat. He walked vacant victorious after 3 rounds. Up next was Victor Pages, a Los Angeles native, who I believe I a perfect example of what jiu jitsu stands for.

When I first joined 10th Planet Van Nuys, I used to lift weights before joining, I walked in there pretty confident. I felt like I was already in good shape and I believe I could take on any challenge. One of the first persons I rolled with was Victor, a skinny guy couldn’t weigh more than 140 lbs I believe. I weighed 168 lbs at the time. As soon as we started sparring, Victor started tossing me around, armbara, chokes, etc. he explained to me the way technique works and how he doesn’t have to rely on brute strength to be victorious. And that’s exactly what he showed on Saturday night. As Victors opponent charged at him like an angry bear, he avoided the attack, slipped right pass him and climbed up his back locking a Rear Naked Choke. Just like a python wrapped around its prey, his opponent in desperate attempts tried to slam Victor to the floor. But the choke was on and it was tight. Victor got the tap, he walked away victorious with the submission in the 2nd round.
