ENQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW IF ASHTON KUTCHER IS A LEGIT BJJ BLACK BELT, BUT A "YES" ANSWER WILL ONLY CRUSH YOUR FRAGILE SELF ESTEEM, GRAPPLER.
Seriously. It's not enough that the guy is rich and famous. He's also taller and marginally better looking than me with exceptionally lustrous hair. And, now he's gotta be a BJJ black belt and steal my last bit of thunder? When I discovered this photo of Ashton Kutcher posing in his black belt adorned gi beside Ricardo De La Riva, I almost felt sorry for myself. But, then I thought about what Rickson would do in a situation like this. So, I went out and did a ginastica routine on the beach and then challenged a couple of men twice my size to death matches. I'm OK now.
Turns out Ashton merely borrowed this tattered black belt when he trained this week at De La Riva's academy in Rio this week. All that Budo I had to muster for nothing ...
