[ Back ]Jean-Claude Van Damme's real name is Jean-Claude Van Varenberg (A.K.A. Frank Cujo). He was born on October 18, 1960 in Berchem-Sainte Agathe, Belgium. Jean-Claude dropped out of school at 16.
Van Damme once claimed that he was the European Kickboxing Champion. No evidence has ever been found to substantiate that claim. However, Jean-Claude Van Damme was a successful karate tournament competitor. Don Wilson once did challenge Van Damme to a $100,000 winner-take-all bout, but Van Damme declined the challenge. In an interview with Van Damme in Black Belt Magazine, it was said that his original style was Shotokan karate.
