Eddie Bravo is the latest major public figure in jiu-jitsu to have his Instagram account suddenly deleted.
I got my IG deleted today for infringing on “intellectual property”. Totally sucks. But Kent Peters got his back, maybe…

The man behind the 10th Planet jiu-jitsu system and the Eddie Bravo Invitational had over 460,000 followers before his account was deleted due to infringing on intellectual property.
Earlier this week, Kent Peters experienced the same struggle when his 20.5k-follower account was suddenly wiped from the internet due to an old repost of a UFC video. However, Peters’ account was restored after a couple of jiu-jitsu practitioners who work for Facebook saw the Jiu-Jitsu Times article that covered the story.
We’ll keep our fingers crossed that Bravo is given the same mercy as Peters was, but in the meantime, you can follow his new account here.
