What is Jean-Claude Van Damme’s height and weight? How tall is Jean-Claude Van Damme? Jean-Claude Van Damme is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 180 pounds. An actor, director, and martial artist, Jean-Claude Van Damme was born Jean-Claude Camille Francois Van Varenberg in Sint-Agatha-Berchem, Brussels, Belgium. He began training in martial arts at age 10, and went on to a successful career in kickboxing and karate, finishing his first season with 20 wins (all via knockout) and 2 losses (by decision). He moved to Hollywood in 1982 to pursue a career in film, and by 1988, he’d scored his first action hit with his starring role in the film, “Bloodsport”. A string of action films followed, including “Universal Soldier”, “Nowhere to Run” and “TimeCop”. During the mid-90s, his career faltered considerably, most likely due to his cocaine addiction and his undiagnosed bipolar disorder. In the mid 2000s, after getting his life back on track, he began performing and directing again. He is currently in post-production on three films and is prepping five others, while preparing to return to professional kickboxing in late 2011.
