Ad*lt F*lm Stars That Train Jiu-Jitsu

Jiu-Jitsu is getting more and more popular. Many celebrities have trained or train BJJ. Adult film stars are no different.

Here is a list of major adult film stars that roll.


5. Manuel Ferrara

He trains Jiu-Jitsu at Z Force.


Ferrera actually did an adult film scene that was filmed in a BJJ academy, where he was wearing a BJJ Gi…

Ferrara on his Jiu-Jitsu training in this interview:

A lot of the people at home that watch my movies or my scenes know I’m not always that fit. But, the days I’m fit, I play basketball. I do Brazilian jiu jitsu. When I’m fit that also means I’m watching what I eat.  But no secrets man … I’m a regular dude, man.


4. Nacho Vidal

Mercedes Ashley


Semi retired adult film star that trains at Ralph Gracie’s.


I also reactivated my membership at Ralph Gracies Jiu Jitsu after I busted my knee in their school. lol.

I think he was a 25 year old. I thought he would go easy on me because I was a girl. Nope. He arm-barred me. I laughed, than paid him back with an arm-bar. It is a tough sport to learn, it takes much of my strength to get these men off of me. I try my best is all I can do. I am 6 months new to jiu jitsu. Technically, a baby in jiu jitsu.



Tyler Knight

Tyler Knight on his Jiu-Jitsu and martial arts training, from this interview:

Whenever I am not on set, I’m usually training martial arts 4-6 hrs a day…mixed martial arts, JKD, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, wrestling, Muay Thai kickboxing, Silat, kali, and boxing. I shuttle around town, to train at 3 different places.


Seymore Butts



Seymore Butts (born Adam Glasser is an American adult film film director, producer, and occasional star who has produced hundreds of films in the gonzo genre (faux reality-based adult material).

According to a thread on sherdog, Butts trains/ has trained at 10th planet Jiu-Jitsu under Eddie Bravo:

Seymore Butts aka. Adam Glasser has his own reality tv show now (who doesn’t?) called Family Business. Anyways I was watching the other night & he was writing a scr.ipt for his next film, yea they actually have scripts, anyways he says he’s having writers block so he “needed to go to the gym to get stretched”. I was shocked to hear that as being stretched is a submission grappling term.

Imagine my shock when the camera’s followed him to Eddie Bravo’s West Hollywood, California’s 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu! And Eddie was there too, instructing Glasser (aka. Seymore). Bravo had Glasser roll with a some average looking chick and the chick tapped him out twice, RNC both times, LOL

They also interviewed Bravo and he came across really cool & laid back. I just thought I’d share.

Added Mention:


Syd Blackovich (real name Shawn Tamaribuchi-Keiser) turned out to be a verified black belt of a known black belt (world champion Lana Stefanac).  Syd even tried her hand in MMA. She’s 1-4 in MMA with her only win being via armbar. She’s faced some of the first females in MMA going as far back as 2007.  Since then she’s dabbled in web design, photography as well as being involved with Triangle films and Barbary Coast Grapplers.

Syd actually founded and teaches at Barbary Coast Grapplers. Her privates go for between 400$ and 500$ an hour which raises a shade of suspicion. BCG actually promises a discreet environment which is something you don’t usually find on academy websites. While the frequently asked questions page suggests this is strictly a grappling environment we have to wonder: What type of private goes for 400$ an hour and how many academy pages advertise phone sex with its members?


Ike Diezel

Male p*rn Star Ike Diezel trains at 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu in Hollywood, under Eddie Bravo. 2014 AVN best male newcomer winner.

Ike told BJJEE:

I started BJJ at carlos Machados in Dallas and moved to Hollywood to pursue music and xxx. I immediately went to 10th planet under eddie bravo who in my opinion is the best.
