Actor Freddie Prinze Jr. Promoted To Purple Belt In Jiu-Jitsu

I Know What You Did Last Summer and She’s All That actor Freddie Prinze Jr. has been promoted to purple belt by Jean Jacques Machado.

Thank you so much to my dear friend @jeanjacquesmachado you’ve taught me as much about life and parenthood as you have in Jiujitsu. Forever grateful brother. ❤️ #jiujitsu #purple

Machado shared a heartfelt message in a comment on Prinze’s post, acknowledging a long-time friendship between himself and his student:

“I remember we met years ago when you were a teenager, not knowing years later you will become a super star, later in life we saw each other and start training JiuJitsu again few years later after an incredible commitment and dedication I felt you are ready to step up, congratulations on your purple belt.”

The actor has waited a long time for this promotion; he got the fourth stripe on his blue belt over four years ago.

Prinze has been sharing his jiu-jitsu journey with his fans for years, speaking about his journey on Brendan Schaub’s show back in 2015. BJJ has also provided him with an opportunity to bond with his daughter.
