Kristen Bell, Hollywood actress known for her roles in the likes of “Frozen” and “The Good Place”, has joined the ranks of celebrities who train Jiu-Jitsu.
And she’s not doing it alone, either – but she trains with her daughter, too!

Bell explained it all in a recent interview with Real Simple:

I started taking mother-daughter Jiu-Jitsu classes last year with Cesalina Gracie, our trainer, who is the closest physical representation to Wonder Woman you’ve ever seen.

I could break your arm.

When the interviewer asked her: “Kristen Bell, aren’t you five-foot-two?” Bell answered:

Jiu-Jitsu is all about leverage—it’s about using connection and distance. And doing it with my daughter brought us closer together.

The first two classes were about using your voice, because if no one can hear you, you’ll never get any of your wants, hopes, or dreams.
You have the right to take up the space that you take up, and to properly communicate with someone—to say yes or no.

Both Kristen and her daughter love Jiu-Jitsu thus far:

Yeah, it’s been a ton of growth for both me and my daughter, who was struggling socially before we started, and has come so far and is doing things that just make my heart explode.

She stopped a fight on the yard at her school! It’s kind of phenomenal.
