Watch Henry Golding And The Snake Eyes Team Train For Fight Scenes

Henry Golding about to fight as Snake Eyes in Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins

The Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins Digital, 4K Ultra HD, and Blu-ray releases are packed with explosive special features that delve into the world of Snake Eyes and the mysterious Arashikage clan. Among the special features is a behind-the-scenes look at sword fight training with the Snake Eyes cast, Fight Coordinator Kenji Tanigaki, and Stunt Coordinator Kimani Ray Smith.

Fans were blown away by the fight choreography and action sequences in Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, and now, with the digital release of the film, fans will get a glimpse behind the scenes. Fight Coordinator Kenji Tanigaki created a unique style for each of the characters based on the amount of training they had in the story. Check it out in the clip below.

In the clip, Keni Tanigaki mentions that since Tommy (played by Andrew Koji) trained at Arashikage for many years, he must be very skilled in his technique. In contrast, Snake Eyes (played by Henry Golding) does not have to be as skilled because he’s coming from the street. This distinction may go unnoticed to the untrained eye, but to those who know the technique it is obvious, and also comes to the forefront once you’ve been made aware of it.

Leading man Henry Golding explains in the clip how one’s body changes through fighting and martial arts. Co-star Andrew Koji elaborates on the experience, discussing what it was like to learn the psychology of the moves. These actors give truly phenomenal performances in the film, and it’s amazing to see the amount of work that went into each scene.
