Some of you youngsters may not remember “Saved By the Bell.” But if you’re old enough to remember the famous late eighties, early nineties sitcom about the exploits of a group of teenagers at the fictional Bayside High School, you’ll probably remember the jock of the group, A.C. Slater, who was played by Mario Lopez.

Well, apparently Lopez’s athletic abilities were not just for show. Mario, who turned 43 last October, also does Brazilian jiu-jitsu with Gracie Barra.

Best of all, he does it with his son, Nico:

We both got stripes today. Nico is still ahead of me… #Jiujitsu #GracieBarra #DadAndNico

And you can feel rest assured that he is earning each one of those stripes, as this video demonstrates.

Great training/sparring today… #Jiujitsu #GracieBarra #SundayWorkout

Welcome to the jiu-jitsu family, Slater…I mean, Lopez!
