Jean Hampel


Coach Jean is from North Hollywood, California. She came from a background in the medical field, assisting physicians for nearly 9 years. Keeping the gym clean is one of her main priorities, because a clean gym means a happy gym. She met Coach Alder at the doctor’s office, and that’s when their love began.

Coach Alder brought Coach Jean in the business shortly after to help get 10th Planet Van Nuys organized. She started training Jiu Jitsu in 2013 after the new location was established. She is now a blue belt, and plans on getting her black belt in the near future. Coach Jean is now the Program Director and manager here at 10th Planet Van Nuys.

She has helped build the gym as well as helped new students get to where they want to be in terms of Jiu Jitsu. Coach Jean helped create the kids program. She originally created the program for her son, who desperately wanted to get on the mats after watching his mom and all the other students roll for so long. Not only is she helping students, all ages, reach their goals here at 10th Planet, but she also makes sure that everyone who comes in feels right at home.
