In the bullet pasted action spectacle ‘John Wick’ we see Keanu Reeves as a retired A-list hit man, who gets in trouble with some Russian gangsters. It doesn’t takes long before they wish they picked on someone else.
Reeves had to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Judo for his role. You can see him execute some very nice throws such Ippon seoi nage, Kataguruma and a bunch of armlocks.
In this third installment of the adrenaline-fueled action franchise, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of gangsters on his trail.
But one thing we haven’t considered this far is that Reeves trains under the same person as Joe Rogan – Rigan Machado.
Here is some BJJ training footage:
“He trains legitimate martial arts” Rogan revealed.
Reeves is also an honorary Judo black belt:
Judo’s only three-time Olympic champion Nomura Tadahiro presented an honorary judo black belt to actor Keanu Reeves in Tokyo.
