Maybe you remember him from the film “Superbad,” or maybe it’s “The Wolf of Wall Street”. Either way, Jonah Hill is a big-time Hollywood celebrity.
And, uh, he can probably kick your butt now. Or at least he’s on the road to kicking your butt.
Behold, the world’s newest one-stripe white belt!

I started Brazilian Jiu Jitzu 2 months ago and try and train 4 or 5 times a week. In high school the dudes who did Jiu Jitzu used to beat the shit out of us at parties so it turned me off to it as an idea growing up. But quietly I always thought it was a beautiful art form . At 35 , I try and get over the stuff that made me feel weak and insecure as a teenager. It’s just wasted time and lessons you’ll never learn. Trying to let go of that. Nothing more humbling than getting your ass kicked by a 12 year old your first week . Got my first stripe today. I know it sounds corny but it’s pretty dope to jump in and do stuff you’d never think you’d be able to do. Much respect to Sensai Josh and @clockworkbjj and Anthony for getting me into it ❤️ 🥋
It’s worth noting that lots of Hollywood types train in stuff even when they’re not preparing for roles. For instance, Robert Downey Jr. is huge into Wing Chun kung fu, and Ed O’Neil is a legit jiu-jitsu black belt.
So what’s your excuse, fatty?
