Prince Jackson

Jiu Jitsu Badass

At Legendary Fight School

EXCLUSIVE

0703_Prince_jackson_launchPrince Jackson is one step closer to becoming a cold-blooded killing machine -- TMZ has learned, Michael Jackson's first born just earned his blue belt in Jiu Jitsu last week ... from one of the most famous martial arts schools in the world.

It's no small feat ... sources at the renowned Gracie Academy in Beverly Hills -- where the 16-year-old trains -- tell us, there are only 5 belts total in the Gracie belt hierarchy, and it takes a LONG time to move up in the ranks.

FYI, the Gracie family is Jiu Jitsu royalty -- and has trained scores of MMA stars like Brendan Schaub, Nate Diaz, Antoni Hardonk, Rani Yahya ... hell, even Tim Tebow.

As for the belts, blue is the second belt after white -- and in order to advance, we're told students must learn 34 different maneuvers (such as an arm bar, elevator sweep, and a guillotine) each with roughly 4 different techniques.

After blue comes purple, then brown, then black -- and to get to purple, we're told Prince will have to learn an additional 600 moves.

Better start practicing.

Who's sharing these pics with the media & public? I thought those kids had learned a lesson about putting themselves in the public eye when Paris had a breakdown last month. Despite the fawning of the Michael Jackson fans, those kids are not beloved but rather spectacles and have been since their birth. The best thing this kid can do is stay out of the public eye and develop his passions and interests. Then come back when he has something to offer other than his image for people to gawk at, ridicule, and criticize. Unlike Paris, who is attractive, this kid is awkward looking (and resembles Arnold Klein too much to be calling himself Michael Jackson Jr) and the public will show him no mercy.

Michael Jackson abuse claims 'could harm daughter Paris's recovery'
30 Jun 2013 16:15
The troubled teenager has struggled to cope with her father's death and is currently recovering from a suicide attempt

Fresh fears have been sparked for Paris Jackson
Splash News
Fears Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris could self-harm again emerged last night after he was accused of abusing a boy for seven years.

Wade Robson, 30, alleged he was molested by the King of Pop from 1990. He was just seven-years-old at the time.

His lawyer claimed Jackson later “brainwashed” him to stay quiet when first accuser Jordan Chandler spoke out.

Wade will call on trouble teenager Paris’s friends, relatives and former staff to back his case.

He also wants stars including Naomi Campbell, David Bowie’s wife Iman, Eddie Murphy and Brooke Shields to support it.

But a Jackson family source said: “The Wade claims were part of why Paris was so bullied. She may need round-the-clock supervision.”

Secret FBI files exclusively seen by the Sunday People reveal Michael Jackson spent £23million buying the silence of at least two dozen young boys he abused over 15 years.

Wade’s court papers also include a maid’s account of hearing Jackson with “little Wade” in the shower with their underwear outside.

The late singer’s estate strongly denies the claims.

Meanwhile, Prince recently revealed Paris was left with emotional problems after giving evidence in her father’s death trial against concert promoter AEG Live, brother Prince has revealed.

In the months before her attempted suicide Paris gave a filmed deposition which her brother said was painful for her.

"I think out of all of my siblings she was probably hit the hardest because she was my dad's princess," he said.

THE REAL DEAL
you should have known better.When i referred to Prince as poor kid,i meant that he is growing up without his beloved father who he saw dead.There is nothing more horrifying for a child to go through,i know because i lost my mother when i was 5.Nobody and nothing can't take the pain away you have to live with it.
And as a mother my heart goes out to Prince.

Gracie jiu-jitsu will help him out a lot in life. It usually takes about a year to get promoted to blue belt, so the kid has put some serious time in. Generally gjj is not like other martial arts, they have become belt factories. You won't see any ten year old black belts. If you don't know much about gjj, do some research, find a place and try it, I did and it changed my life for the better! I'm happy for the kid!
