With his skills in stunts, martial arts, and acting, Roger Yuan is a triple threat of talent. He is widely known as the fight coordinator for “Jason Bourne” and for appearing in numerous films such as “Shanghai Noon,” “Batman Begins,” and “Bulletproof Monk.” Yuan also contributed stunts and appeared as a Triad assassin in “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.”
In his early years, Yuan was a self-trained martial artist, learning judo and karate from books he read. However, he underwent formal training for karate in his late teens before his move to Los Angeles introduced him to a certain Chuck Norris.
Discussing the experience with Kung-fu Kingdom, Yuan said, “Chuck tells me about how his style was originally Tang Soo Do but with hand techniques similar to Shotokan and Kyokushin and I might see some of the forms that are similar. ‘You should train here,’ he said. I was recruited by Chuck Norris to train in his system, and now I have a fourth-degree black belt.”
