Kate Upton Chokes Out Jimmy Fallon On The Tonight Show
Jiu-Jitsu enjoys some time in the mainstream spotlight every so often, but it may have just had one of its biggest moments yet on the tonight show with Jimmy Fallon. It seems that the list of celebrities practicing jiu-jitsu has grown once again. Movie stars, recording artists, models, athletes, and other mainstream icons are beginning discover jiu-jitsu at a more rapid rate than ever and many of them are sharing their experiences with the masses.
Supermodel Kate Upton recently joined Fallon on The Tonight Show and became wildly excited when the topic of jiu-jitsu came up, stating that she had just received her first stripe and that she is “obsessed” with the gentle art. She discussed the belt system a bit and a few details about her training.
An apprehensive Fallon then became the uke as Upton demonstrated a rear naked choke on the late-night host. The energy during the exchange was awesome and you can easily gather that Upton is incredibly enthusiastic about joining the growing group of BJJ practitioners. You can check out the video here.
Though the BJJ world is still small in comparison to that of many other recreational activities, it seems to ignite such a spark in almost everyone that experiences it. When celebrities bring BJJ to the mainstream public eye, we can’t help but sit back and say, “see, I told you”.
