Totowa MMA: A look inside NJ United Mixed Martial Arts Academy

Demi Lovato shows the spirit of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!

Actress and singer Demi Lovato shortly after earning her blue belt. The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle is incredibly rewarding on many levels, as Demi has been discovering firsthand!

Nowadays, you can find celebrity endorsements for just about anything. But the vast majority of the time, celebs are simply being paid to advertise a product. So now that Grammy-nominated singer and actress Demi Lovato is loving every minute of being a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blue belt, she’s also been bringing a lot of attention to The Gentle Art. And it’s the good kind of attention too – Demi’s honesty, humility, and excitement for the art is genuine, as she’s shown through social media.

BJJ is notorious for its steep learning curve and the slow progression through its belt ranking system that one must undergo to attain mastery. But this has been no deterrent to Demi, whose love for the art is straight-up infectious in this training clip. She hopes that “everyone finds something they become as passionate about as I feel about jiu jitsu,” and her example is bringing the jiu-jitsu experience closer to people and fan-bases who may have never considered it.

So yeah, it’s great to see celebrity endorsements without a catch! I guess that’s because Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu pays its own practitioners back with the best fitness-levels of their lives, improved mental health and problem-solving skills, and even a strong and dynamic network of people on their own similar martial arts journeys. What’s not to love?

Props to Demi for using her celebrity platform to let the masses know how fantastic Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training is!
