Mark Zuckerberg has been training Jiu-Jitsu for well over a year now. And he’s been quite successful at it already, having competed and won medals.
But it’s not just about the tournament successes, as Zuckerberg appears to truly love and enjoy the Gentle Art.
His coach, Dave Camarillo, praised his work ethic:
He’s amazing. He is an extremely hard worker, as everybody knows.
But a lot of people have a business and they’re successful and they have that side of their life, and rarely do they dip into the physical side, especially with something like Jiu-Jitsu and MMA, and have the same amount of success or even go past Day 1 or Month 1.
He’s not that kind of guy.
