Eddie Bravo is a BJJ black belt practicing under the supervision of Jean Jacques Machado. He founded the EBI – Eddie Bravo Invitational in 2014. Bravo gained more popularity in the competitive jiu jitsu world by defeating Royler Gracie at the ADCC Championship in 2003.

Following this, he established his 10th Planet jiu-jitsu team, which gained significant attention and a large fan base in the grappling and mixed martial arts (MMA) communities. Eddie’s grappling techniques, including the rubber guard, the twister, and a half guard move he named the lockdown, attracted several MMA fighters to learn this approach. Some of these fighters include Alan Belcher, Matt Horwich, and Vinny Magalhaes, among others.
