Jonah Hill has taken up Jiu Jitsu

Jonah Hill has a new hobby.

“I started Brazilian Jui Jitzu 2 months ago and try and train 4 or 5 times a week,” he revealed on social media Tuesday alongside a photo of himself at a Jiu Jitsu studio in Manhattan. “In high school the dudes who did Jui Jitzu used to beat the s–t out of us at parties so it turned me off to it as an idea growing up. But quietly I always thought it was a beautiful art form.”

He continued, “At 35, I try and get over the stuff that made me feel weak and insecure as a teenager. It’s just wasted time and lessons you’ll never learn. Trying to let go of that. Nothing more humbling than getting your ass kicked by a 12-year-old your first week.”

The “Mid90s” director’s post was also in celebration of moving up in the ranks, having earned his first stripe, signifying the advancement of his skill set.

“I know it sounds corny but it’s pretty dope to jump in and do stuff you’d never think you’d be able to do,” he wrote. “Much respect to Sensai Josh and @clockworkbjj and Anthony for getting me into it ❤️”
