Kelly Slater visits Art of Jiu-Jitsu Academy

The phenomenal 11 times World surfing champion Kelly Slater took time of his competition schedule at the US Open to show up for a training session at Art of Jiu-Jitsu Academy. There Kelly ( a 2 stripe blue belt) worked BJJ with Rafa and Gui Mendes and Marcus "Buchecha" and exchanged surfing tips with the trio. It is another instance when a mainstream celebrity is in with our art. Congratulations to all and Rafa, keep your day job please don't try any of those moves Kelly showed in the water 🙂  (All photos Fighters Instagram/personal archives)
