10th Planet Top Game No Gi Back Takes by PJ Barch

PJ dropped out of University after two years at Pennsylvania due to some personal issues he was going through. Upon leaving Uni in 2011, PJ moved to Hawaii where he got back into surfing in an attempt to heal from his personal pain. While living in Hawaii he was convinced by some friends to attend a Jiu Jitsu class at BJ Penn’s academy in Hilo. PJ began training with the UFC veteran learning exceptional skills in Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts. In 2013 PJ jumped into the cage to begin his MMA career, as he secured a Guillotine choke win in under a minute in his first fight against Jostin Carbajal. PJ would go on to a second win by unanimous decision against Kenue Mundon.

PJ decided to make the switch to professional grappling as he moved from Hawaii to Portland and joined up with 10th Planet under Nathan Orchid. Later PJ would move again to Stockholm in Sweden where he started training under Magnus Hansson, another 10th Planet affiliate. In 2015 PJ would make his final move as he joined up with the “Boogeyman” Ritchie Martinez at his brand new branch of 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu in San Diego. PJ became one of Richie’s best students as he began to tear up the competition, and in 2016 was awarded his Black belt in a ceremony lead by Eddie Bravo. 

As a brand new Black belt, PJ began competing on the professional grappling circuit. In 2016 and 2017 PJ started winning tournaments, his first was at the 3rd edition of the Onnit Invitational where he won the final against Lucas Valente with a rear naked choke. PJ went on to win the Sapateiro 10 the following year with another rear naked choke against Pierre Leclerc in the final. In 2018 PJ would continue to impress as he won matches against high quality grapplers like Victor Silverio, David Garmo and William Tackett. PJ won another Onnit Invitational and the Subversiv tournament this time in the absolute division. PJ also made it to the semi finals at the ADCC East Coast trials after a quarter final win against William Tackett.

Over the next three years PJ would win more titles like the Sin City Series and the Emerald City Championships, with wins in both finals against Alan Sanchez with an inside heel hook and a kimura respectively. He also won matches at other events like Polaris, NoGi Worlds, BJJ Fanatics Championship and the ADCC East Coast trials. PJ Barch has continued to improve on the world scene of grappling as he aspires to make waves in future divisions in an attempt to be crowned World Champion.
