About the Trainers
The Martinez brothers run 10th Planet San Diego and 10th Planet Oceanside academies and break dance professionally as part of “The Freakshow” break dance crew. Their dedication and fast rise to success made them famous, or rather infamous, in record time. This summer Geo and Richie are returning to Cyprus to host the 2018 BJJ & Beach Camp after the huge success they had last year hosting the 2016 and 2017 Camp.
Geo “Freakahzoid” Martinez is one of Eddie Bravo’s 10th Planet black belts. He made his name as an undefeated competitor throughout 2014 in the Adult Black Belt division of the Gracie Nationals, ADCC Trials and went on to beat the World Champion, Jeff Glover at the Eddie Bravo Invitational finals. Currently Geo is the EBI 10 Bantamweight champion. Geo’s natural talent and background in breakdancing gave him the edge in developing a fighting style which is undeniably unique and dangerous. His strength, flexibility and spacial awareness give him the ability to teach students his unique concepts to adapt and assimilate into their game.
Richie “Boogeyman” Martinez is a 10th planet black belt, EBI compat JJ middleweight champion and Tuff-N-Uff 170-pound Champion. He is a decorated medalist in some of the most prestigious grappling events such as IBJJF Worlds NO-GI, Gracie Worlds, United Grappling Federation (UGF), North American Grappling Association (NAGA) and others. His success on the mat and in the cage is attributed to his endless work ethic, strength and flexibility developed through breakdancing and refined through BJJ.
