Demi Lovato earns her second belt in Brazilian martial art, Jiu-jistu

American singer Demi Lovato has earned her second-degree blue belt in jiu-jitsu, after putting in hours of hard work in the martial art since leaving rehab last year.

The 26-year-old singer has been hard at work studying the Brazilian martial art since she left rehab following a near-fatal overdose over the summer, and has now said she’s worked hard enough to earn a new degree in the sport.

Posting a picture on her Instagram story, Demi announced this new milestone to millions of her followers saying that jiu-jistu was a passion of hers and also thanked her trainer for helping her with this achievement.

The ‘Sober’ hitmaker first earned her blue belt back in August 2017, and this is her second of seven belt levels in the Brazilian jiu-jitsu system.

Within each level, instructors can award degrees, also known as stripes, to honor a student’s progress and skill before they’re ready to move up to the next level.

For Demi, the stripe comes after she recently revealed she knocked her trainer’s tooth out whilst at her favorite mixed martial arts gym, Unbreakable Performance in Hollywood, despite him wearing a mouth guard to protect against such injuries.

Following her overdose in July, Demi has seemingly been committed to her sobriety, which includes focusing her energy on more positive activities such as exercise.

A source recently insisted the ‘Solo’ hitmaker has been working hard behind the scenes to remain sober and has cut off her “enabling” friends, with her biggest motivation being the chance to get back on stage.
