It's never too late! | @anthonybourdain joined Jiu-Jitsu on his late 50s

INSTANEWS: It's never too late! | @anthonybourdain joined Jiu-Jitsu on his late 50s, after a dare by his wife @ottaviabourdain.| For six months, his goal was to survive the warmup and put some resistance against younger and more skilled partners.| Little by little he got in shape and learned a thing or two.| The gentle art slowly became a big part of his life.| He even admitted to schedule his show around his training routine.| He would look for BJJ academies in the cities he went to work.| One of the episodes of the latest season of @cnn Parts Unknown, in the Bay Area, had Jiu-Jitsu as the theme and background.| This Saturday he ticked another box on every practioner's list and competed for the first time.| Not only that, but he also won the master 5 blue belt middleweight division at the @ibjjf New York Spring Open.| After winning, he said: "I have to admit I am quite happy with it."| What's next?| Maybe the Worlds Masters, in August.| Well done, Chef.| Photo @danrodphotography.| ‪#‎bjj‬ ‪#‎graciemag‬ ‪#‎graciemagazine‬ ‪#‎ibjjf‬ ‪#‎nyc‬‪#‎newyorkopen‬ ‪#‎brazilianjiujitsu‬ ‪#‎bjjdrops‬ ‪#‎bourdain‬ #nyc ‪#‎partsunknown‬‪#‎cnn‬ ‪#‎awesome‬ ‪#‎amazing‬
