Rene joins us from 10th Planet Bethlehem as a brown belt with a strong wrestling background. He teaches a broad range of techniques from his extensive Jiu Jitsu and wrestling background.
Tom is a brown belt under Zach Maslany and JM Holland of 10th Planet Bethlehem. Tom started his grappling career as a wrestler while in middle school, training and competing for six years up until his late teenage years. He then realized he was not ready to give up competition after his final season of wrestling. A year after his final wrestling match, Tom was introduced to 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu at the Bethlehem location and instantly fell in love with the art. Tom has been training under Zach and JM ever since and earned the rank of brown belt under them. Tom now spends his time traveling around the tri-state area, sharing his skills by teaching at 10th Planet Bethlehem, 10th Planet New York City, 10th Planet Woodbridge and 10th Planet Newton. He also teaches the no gi jiu jitsu program at Hillsborough BJJ.
