BRYAN BROWN

Head Coach

"COACH B. BROWN" is a black belt under 10th Planet founder Eddie Bravo, and has been training with Eddie since 2006! He started at the Bomb Squad when it was the only 10th Planet, which now has over 80 Moons orbiting around the 10th Planet HQ in Los Angeles. One of Bryan's goals has been to become the head instructor of his own Moon. His heart lies in creating the best atmosphere, training partners, and best instruction in our community. 

In 2017 he married the love of his life, Mattie Brown. Outside of his life of jiu jitsu, Coach Bryan has quite the musical talent.

"THE HONEY BADGER" started training jiu jitsu in September 2011 and fell in love with it the first day. She is a brown belt under Coach Bryan Brown at 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Jacksonville. Mattie's attention to detail has made her a great asset to the team, especially as the instructor for the 101 jiu jitsu classes. 

Her love for jiu jitsu is only surpassed by her love for empowering women through self defense. She runs our women's self defense program known as Athena: Women's Self Defense.

STORM SHANNON

10th Planet Orange Park Instructor

"STORM" is the instructor at our 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Orange Park location. Storm received his Brown belt in 2020 from Coach Bryan Brown. Storm has a gift for breaking down and explaining both complex and basic techniques in a comprehensible way.  He has a 10 year back ground in the art of Goju-ryu Karate, and in 2008, was introduced to the art of Brazilian jiu jitsu. Humbled by his experience, he was immediately hooked. In 2009, he was introduced to 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu, but didn't get the opportunity to train in it until Bryan Brown brought 10th Planet to Jacksonville in 2016. Beyond his jiu jitsu endeavors, Storm has received a degree in Sports Medicine Athletic Training and a doctorate in Chiropractic.
