Stahelski is the co-founder of the famed 87Eleven Stunt Team and was responsible for crafting the action in films such as Ninja Assassin, Safe, and the John Wick films. He also assisted with Yuen Woo-Ping's team on Keanu Reeves' directorial debut Man of Tai Chi as he was Reeves' double on the Matrix films.
