INTRODUCTION:

Liviu Covalschi, born 29 October 1981, is a Romanian action actor, fitness model, martial arts master and special weapons tactics and counter-terrorism combat expert. Typecast as the antihero, he is known for his action roles and portrayal of irredeemable and Machiavellian characters. Throughout his film career, Liviu has regularly performed his own stage combat and stunts. He has also designed fight choreography and gun tactics for various projects.

Liviu is a seasoned specialist in Special Weapons and Close Combat. This military self-defence and hand-to-hand combat system was developed for special forces and high-risk protection agents; it consists of a combination of techniques sourced from boxing, wrestling, aikido, judo, karate and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Close Combat Tactics and Training (CCTT) is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extreme efficiency and brutal counter-attacks. It was derived from street fighting mixed with the best techniques drawn from martial arts styles from all over the world.

Born in Romania, Liviu began practicing karate (at the age of 4), kung fu (at the age of 8) and kick Boxing (at the age of 15) recreationally. Professionally, he began working for a local security company at the age of 17. An avid rugby and martial arts enthusiast, he was tapped by the Romanian Karate Team to compete. Shortly after, he was asked to model for Harley Davidson, ProSupps, Men’s Physique and Shredz in various advertising campaigns. Liviu’s history working on the fast response team of a professional security firm inspired him to join the Romanian Army, eventually becoming part of its Special Forces Unit.

Liviu is an example of perfect coordination between body (model, actor, fitness, martial arts, army special tactical training) and mind (business development, design, construction, marketing, management). This is the key to success and brings results at the highest levels.
