Chad Kartz - Actor, stunts, fight choreographer and martial arts teacher.


Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada – I spent the better part of my teenage years in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada before heading back to Edmonton. I am now based out of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

I started modeling at an early age and pursued that for a few years before being bit by the acting bug. My first acting role was playing “Joe”, a Youth Outreach Worker in the TV documentary Teenage Prostitution in Our City. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to work on many TV series, indie films, and blockbuster movies.

In the early 90’s I began my foray into the world of the martial arts - starting first with Tae Kwon Do, then Aikido. While training heavily in Aikido, I was introduced to the Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu system. The Bujinkan is comprised of 9 traditional schools with direct historical ties to the Samurai and the legendary Ninja of Japan. In 1995 I was awarded “Shodan” (1st Degree Blackbelt) while training with the Grandmaster at an international event in Tucson, Arizona. In November 2000 while training at the home dojo in Noda, Japan, I successfully passed the Godan “Sakki” sword test on my first attempt and was awarded my 5th Degree Blackbelt and the title of Shidoshi (teacher).

I utilize my training to perform stunts and fight choreography in addition to enhancing my acting capabilities. I continue to teach and study the martial arts as well as host movie combat workshops.
