  • last month
Tu Lam, a former Special Forces soldier, rates the fighting techniques Keanu Reeves uses in the "John Wick" movies.

He talks about judo and jujitsu, sniper techniques, and the ways public missions are handled in "John Wick" (2014), with Alfie Allen, Willem Dafoe, and John Leguizamo. He explains how suppressors work, the best ways to handle a knife, and how to turn anything in a room into a weapon, as seen in "John Wick: Chapter 2" (2017), with Common, Ruby Rose, and Laurence Fishburne. He compares his own experiences with urban shootouts, working with military dogs, and fighting on a motorcycle to "John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum" (2019), with Halle Berry, Ian McShane, and Anjelica Huston. Finally, he breaks down defensive driving, clearing a room, and fighting on stairs in "John Wick: Chapter 4" (2023), with Bill Skarsgård and Donnie Yen.

Lam is a former Green Beret with 23 years of service. During his time in the special forces, he was deployed in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Philippines. He is also the founder and CEO of Ronin Tactics, which provides tactical hand-to-hand and weapons training to a wide array of clients. You can also see his motion-capture movements displayed in the character Ronin in "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare."
