We have reported and talked with Keanu a while back during a firearms training session for his John Wick character, and now the man is working out behind the trigger again!
New video recently released, shows Keanu Reeves is still extremely dedicated to perfecting his already insane firearm skills, as he trains with gun expert/designer Aaron Cohen.
Aaron Cohen’s company Cherries Covert Ops Apparel made the following comment below:
“Aaron Cohen trains Keanu Reeves for John Wick: Chapter 2. Training consisted of over 3 weeks of pre-production tactical firearms prep. Specific gear and tactics included concealed draw training with Cohen’s newly released Cherries Below-The-Waistband Deep Concealment Holster, and over 40 hours of carbine combined with limited penetration room clearing. Cohen was part of a tactical training team selected to train Reeves which included Judo, Ju-Jitsu, Krav Maga, boxing, 3-gun and more.”
Keanu was training hard with Aarons new “Below-The-Waistband Deep Concealment Holster” designed to fit inside the front of the gun owner’s pants, and as we can see in the 7min clip below it seems pretty clear we’ll see it used at some point during John Wick 2.
Here’s what Aaron Cohen Aaron Cohen had to say about training Keanu Reeves:
“Keanu is one of the hardest-working people I’ve trained. He is the ultimate truth seeker when it comes to perfecting tactics. He is incredibly humble and I’m truly grateful to have gotten to be a part of his training team for John Wick: Chapter Two.”
We are also very proud that Showbiz Spy was the very first to break the news, John Wick 3 is already in the works through our very reliable, and much loved studio spy. He called us after the money men screened Chapter 2, telling us: “they were more than impressed, and started asking about a 3rd movie!”
Take a look at this seven-minute video of Keanu learning to use the new unique front draw holster, a conceled design Aaron Cohen put together himself:
