Pop star Demi Lovato continues to dive headfirst into the world of mixed martial arts.
There is no secret that jiu jitsu is one of Lovato’s passions when she’s off the stage, and she continues to improve.
Throughout the summer, Lovato has been sharing videos on social media that show her progress on the mat. Recently, her hard work paid off with a promotion to blue belt at Jay Glazer’s Unbreakable Gym in Los Angeles, Calif.
“I first got into jiu-jitsu because I loved watching people grapple,” Lovato told SELF last month. “I think it’s really cool to learn something that helps you with self-defense.”
Now, we’re continuing to see Lovato fine-tuning her skillset.
The latest example came when Lovato took to social media to show off a new move she is adding to her arsenal — a flying armbar. While the set up still needs some work, it’s not too shabby for someone who is still finding their way on the mat.

Not too shabby, especially for someone who has only been training for a little over a year. As they say, “Hard work pays off.” Oss.
