Hugh Jackman has already mastered the art of the blades that protrude from his knuckles as Logan in Wolverine, but recently he was spotted working with a more old-fashioned weapon – a sword.
The 45-year-old star, who recently underwent skin cancer surgery on his face, was seen training in a park overlooking the Hudson River in New York with martial arts champion Jamie Goulding for his role as Blackbeard in his latest flick, Pan.
"He's got a really good work ethic," says Goulding, the fight scene coordinator for the film. "He works really, really hard."
So how hard does one actually have to work to maneuver with a sword?
"To start with, I taught him kickboxing," Goulding says. "We did footwork, then we moved on to the weapons and the sword."
