Coach Jeff Anderson

10th Planet Blue Belt under Andrew Murillo (Head instructor of 10th Planet Murrieta)

Coach Jeff’s passion for martial arts started with watching old martial arts movies with his older brother, only to have it become a life long goal to fully immerse himself into the captivating culture that came with it.

Jeff was introduced to Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu by his former coach 10 years ago, where he trained on and off independently. Here he learned the hard lessons of being resilient to the conditions necessary to being a martial artist - strength, conditioning, humility, poise, and respect.

In 2013 Fight Lab was the next step. Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, and boxing became his focal point for about a year where he competed in multiple tournaments including pancration and Jiu Jitsu. In 2017, Jeff landed at 10th Planet after meeting coach Drew outside the gym. After a year of consistent attention to his training Jeff earned his blue belt in 10th planet Jiu Jitsu.

Jeff completed the 10th Planet coach program under coach Drew and started assistant coaching the Monday Little Diamonds and Junior Diamonds classes. After assisting regularly with the kids program, Jeff earned his coaching slot with the adults Diamond Squad.
