The best memories you have of your childhood were those spending time with your loved ones. Actor Freddie Prinze Jr., he has shown that he is dedicated to that sentiment. Regardless of his acting career and clout in the celebrity world, Prinze’s top priority wasn’t acting –
“acting was not my number-one passion even when I was doing it,”
According to Shape.com. Instead, his passion lies in martial arts and family life.
“I’ve always found that jiujitsu is the best martial arts for women because the position of being on your back with an aggressor between your legs—as a jiujitsu practitioner, that guy’s in a lot of trouble,”
“They don’t even teach her how to punch,” he says. “But she will know how to take someone down (whether they’re bigger than her or not) with leverage. And if she’s the one on her back, she won’t have to worry, because she’ll know how to do a triangle choke, an arm lock—there are a million options. It’s very important to me that she’s able to do that.”
Before acting, Prinze spent most of his time delving in video games, surfing, and attending the Le Cordon Bleu Culinary school in Pasadena, California. Years down the line, he went back to his roots by releasing a cookbook called Back To the Kitchen. The cookbook involves messy, quick recipes and a recollection of his family life. While Prinze shares his passion for food with us, he shares his passion for jiu-jitsu with his 7-year-old daughter Charlotte Grace.
