Aaron Cohen From Cherries Training Keanu Reeves For John Wick 2

Aaron Cohen is a living and breathing meme, and looks like he trained Keanu:

Keanu is the man.  Everything I’ve ever heard about that guy has been positive.  Aaron Cohen AKA “Cherries” on the other hand and I have a history.  A history of me thinking a lot of his stuff was ridiculously derpy, and then him getting butthurt.  You can click that link and read some past posts.  Naturally most of the videos are gone from the internet now.  Frankly I’m happy for him and impressed he could land a gig like this.  People often think the people I poke fun at I don’t like for whatever reason, which is totally not the case.  I don’t know Aaron or anyone else in real life, so I’m just going by what I see in the stuff they present to the internet.

If Keanu’s style in John Wick 2 is going to be to crouch down and push his ass out and punch the handgun out, the movie is going to look drastically different from the first.  That said, I don’t know anything about movies, so maybe what we’re seeing in this video is going to translate amazingly to film, and we’re all going to be blown away.  The trailer for the movie that’s out shows some gun handling, but it’s mostly quick cuts as expected.  Looks like there might be a couple things taken from this training.  The movie comes out Feb 10, 2017 so I guess we’ll see then.

Starting at around 2:35 with the AR-15 I have to wonder why Arron didn’t immediately show Keanu how to fix the issue with the sling interfering.  It looked very frustrating.  Maybe I shouldn’t ever be questioning these things with Aaron though, because as far as I know it’s probably an “Israeli method”.

sad_keanu4:33 – Keanu is using Cherries own “Medina” below the waistband holster which requires a pocket assisted draw, the holster is $50 on his website if you’re thinking you need it in your life.  *shrug* I’m not sold on the idea.

Thoughts?  I don’t know guys… I just don’t know.  Maybe the production company just wanted Keanu to get a feel for a whole bunch of different ways of doing things, so he could then use bits and pieces.  We already have seen him train with Taran Butler, and if that just makes two that’s we’ve heard of there might be a lot more training schools who aren’t so quick to flex on the internet.
