Just as if you’re going to learn math, how to read, and how to write, in the Emmy-winner’s household, the actor and third-degree jiu-jitsu blackbelt has established that you must be able to handle yourself in a self-defense situation.

Flanery, of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles and The Boondocks Saints fame, caught up with us to discuss that, his love for jiu-jitsu, and his upcoming film Born A Champion, which co-stars Dennis Quaid, and Katrina Bowden, as well as UFC stars Edson Barboza, Renzo Gracie, and Mickey Gall.
