Taslim was exposed to martial arts at an early age. His martial arts training includes Wushu, Judo, Taekwondo, and Pencak Silat. However, he found his passion in Judo and this led to his career as a professional Judo athlete. He won several gold medals in national championships, a gold medal at the 1999 South East Asia Judo championships, and a silver medal at the 2007 ASEAN Games. Taslim was a member of Indonesia Judo national team from 1997 to 2009, when an injury forced him to retire. Taslim is active as a model and actor, appearing in magazines, TV commercials, and several Indonesian feature films. In 2010, Taslim won the role of Jaka in the award-winning The Raid: Redemption, after a series of impressive fight auditions and reading. Following The Raid, Taslim took part in HBO Asia's first action horror, Dead Mine, which had a theatrical release in selected Asian territories in September 2012, followed by exclusive television premieres across the HBO Asia network.
