Did anyone see Jason Alexander (George from Seinfeld) on Jimmy Kimmel Live recently giving a martial arts demo? Any thoughts? Anyone know his level of expertise?
What about other "celebrity martial artists" (celebs that practice MA but are not famous because of it)? I suspect most are blowing smoke, but are any of them any good?
I discovered a number of celebs listed in the martial arts category on Wikipedia (link), such as Freddie Prinze Jr, Elvis, et al, who I would never think of as "martial artists," so I'm curious.

He's discussed it in the past and is a commited martial artisit. I don't know what his style is but I believe it involves using his Seinfeld money to pay whoever he wants to beat up whomever bugs him.

As memory serves from an interview on the Howard Stern Show, Alexander was a Karate man (perhaps even Kyokoushini). Claimed that he did use it against a mugger or in a fight before he became famous.
Se said he still practices, but is doing his own thing based on Karate and cross training he has done since.

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
