Jason Statham BJJ Coach and Training

Jason Statham got his purple belt from Renzo Gracie, a member of the Gracie family, who he trains under in New York. However, Jason has also been spotted at the Roger Gracie gym in London. It’s unclear whether he switched head coaches, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Jason Statham got his brown belt from Roger Gracie.

Jason Statham BJJ Belt

Jason Statham is a BJJ purple belt under Renzo Gracie. The purple belt is the third of 5 belts in the BJJ belt system. This means he’s legit, because Renzo doesn’t hand out belts to people just for being famous. Jason also doesn’t train BJJ specifically for his movies, he trains BJJ for its own sake. He also does full sparring, so his skills are battle tested.
