Biography

Tommy Chang is a Korean-Canadian world-renowned 7th degree Taekwondo and 8th Degree Hapkido instructor and Grandmaster, actor, stunt performer, stunt coordinator and producer. With over 40 years of training and experience in Taekwondo and Hapkido, Master Chang also trained extensively in ITF/WTF TKD, Moo Duk Kwan, and Judo. He is also an 8th Degree Black Belt in Hap Ki-Do, specializing in pressure points, take-downs and grappling. His martial arts expertise also encompasses mastery of several weapons. In addition, he is a WTF-certified Master Instructor of Taekwondo and a Canadian National Referee.

He is also the founder, manager and team leader of ReelStunts Film/Television Action Stunt Team. Additionally, he also personally trained several members of his stunt team which specializes in Martial Arts, High Falls, Stunt Driving, Fireburns, Gymnastics, Acrobatics, Breakdancing, Weapons Training, Motion Capture Acting, Wirework, and Acting. His stunt team includes the personalities of Simon Kim, James Kim, Joe Eigo, Emerson Wong, Allen Keng and Tonya Henry. Some of the noteworthy accomplishments of this team include having worked with Steven Seagal, Chow Yun-fat, David Carradine, Seth Rogan, James Franco, Charlie Hunnam, Vin Diesel, and Jackie Chan.

He is well known for being risk-taking in the performance of his stunts. An example of his daredevilry is seen in his stunt execution for a television show called Side Factor. After performing multiple takes of propulsion into the air via an air ram, Master Chang wound up with a compound fracture.

He completed a major motion picture as fight choreographer in 2012 on a block buster Hollywood film called Pacific Rim. In 2013 he has produced a full feature movie as Associate Producer called the Hacker with his good friend Sanzhar Sultanov. He also executive produced a short feature film called the Proposal.
