Hollywood stars sometimes have to undergo intensive training in martial arts in order to get ready for the role, which implies some tricks. Regardless of whether they are playing the latest superhero or star in the major role in the blockbuster, the actors sometimes do not rely on understudy and decide to overcome all the difficulties on their own.
Wesley Snipes is an experienced blockbuster star. He starred in various films, including the series of films “Blade” and “Destroyer”. On the basis of his body shape we can say that this person tries to keep himself in excellent physical shape.
This is partly caused by the fact that he practices many disciplines of martial arts. He has skills in Escrima, a Filipino martial art that implies possession of two sticks; he is familiar with the Brazilian martial art capoeira, as well as kung fu and karate. Wesley has been practicing martial arts since childhood and never thought it would be useful for him in his acting endeavors. He thought about his training more as a hobby, saying he did not think “wow, maybe one day I will use martial arts in films.”
Interestingly, but most of the tricks he performed himself. It is known that for some time he was engaged in the Brazilian martial art capoeira and “Shaolin exercises.” Wesley also has a fifth dan of black belt in karate. But he uses his skills exclusively at work.
Wesley Snipes believes that he has no special talent for acting, and he’s confident that the popularity came to him only due to his physique and skills of martial arts. The role in “Blade” was a very easy one for him, especially the scene of fights.
All his spare time Wesley still dedicates to his training. However, sometimes he rides with the 200-kilometer speed along the highway on his “Harley Davidson”, rising all the police in the district to their feet.
