This fight was third place and she dominated by points 10-0. Her first fight was also good and only lost by a point.

10th Planet Burbank’s, Rachel Tan, Takes On Eddie Bravo

10th Planet Burbank’s stand out planeteer, Rachel Tan, goes toe to toe against Grand Master Eddie Bravo. Eddie frequently visits the Burbank 10th Planet Moon to teach class and roll with the students.

Coaching Rachel has been one of the coolest experiences I’ve had teaching. She has alien like flexibility, is an incredibly fast learner, and has natural talent for Jiu Jitsu. She’s also deaf. Her boyfriend and fellow 10th Planet practitioner, Jason Juatco, translates the lessons to her as best he can during class. Everything else she picks up by watching. She is hungry to start competing, so watch out world, Rachel Tan is going to be double baggin’ a tournament near you!
