It’s no secret. Multi-award winning filmmaker/actor, Harley Wallen is a force to be reckoned with. Before he sought to establish himself in film, working with such legendary stars as Tom Sizemore, Tara Reid, Laurene Landon and John Savage among many others, Wallen had established himself in the MMA octagon.
With a 5th degree black belt in judo, Wallen went on to and acquire black belts in Jiu-Jitsu and Tae Kwon Do as well. Wallen has had over 400 professional wins to his credit. Now he is preparing himself for the biggest honor of his professional career. He will be inducted into the prestigious USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame at their gala at the Radisson Hotel in Clarksville, Indiana.
Here he demonstrates how he won his last two gold medals at Flag City Open, Judo Championships 10/26/2008 in Bluffton Ohio.
Wallen was noted as saying, “Sure, my last fights and Judo tournaments were very successful here in the US but what I’m most proud of isn’t at all individual achievements but rather the impact I’ve had on others in the game as a coach, as a commentator and host, especially all the years with Warrior Xtreme, now on UFC Fight Pass and in my earlier years fighting and commentating XCC fights on FOX Sports and My TV20 Detroit!”
Wallen will be inducted into the prestigious USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame at their gala at the Radisson Hotel in Clarksville, Indiana on the weekend of April 13-14th. This Hall of Fame was founded by Grandmaster Jim Thomas, Ph.D./D.Sc./Ma.Dsc and will mark the 42nd year of this esteemed event. This weekend extravaganza will consist of a black tie gala, martial arts competition, and seminar training.
