Los Angeles, CA (May 31, 2017)—Recording artist, Brazilian ju-jitsu black belt, world champion and star of long-running Showtime hit TV series, Gigolos, has released his powerful, new single and music video, “I Can Take a Punch,” and to celebrate is embarking on a media tour of Los Angeles this week, culminating in a rare, live performance at Le Jardin on Friday, June 2 at 11:30pm.

The new single, “I Can Take a Punch,” released on Memorial Day, is about bullying and unwarranted, unacceptable harassing-attacks. His brother Ryan and actress Michelle Maylene both play roles of victims in these attacks, showing that if you stand up for yourself these attackers will no longer exist. Hawk went back to his roots, in Wisconsin, to film most of the scenes. He shot in the very locations where he got into fights in his youth. Although much of Hawk’s video is a metaphor, he relived taking the physical punches, as he spits blood and knocks himself to the ground. The video is littered with beautiful shots with Madison’s capital building in the background. It also has shots of Hawk doing some knocking down of his own, at Robert Drysdale’s jiu-jitsu academy, as he showcases an array of vicious takedowns and submissions on two of his teammates.

“This video was shot in my hometown, in places where I got into fights and got knocked down, when I was growing up,” says Hawk. “I want to thank my brother Ryan, Michelle Maylene, Arin, Antonio, Robert Drysdale and everyone who ever knocked me down. And I want to thank my fans for their continued support, don’t ever give up, keep fighting.”

The message of “I Can Take a Punch,” goes deep to the core of anyone who has had to defend their right to be the person they choose to be. “If we do not allow people to attack us, if we stand up for ourselves and accept who we are, these people will not exist. Be confident and free,” says Hawk.

About Nick Hawk

I was born on September 3, 1981 in Madison, Wisconsin as Nicholas Haas. Having little money and scared of my own shadow motivated me to become confident and successful. After graduating high school, I attended college for a year in Wisconsin and continued my wrestling career. I ran out of the little money I had, left college and almost lost myself by partying my life away. I decided I needed to get away, and fast. I joined the Air Force for a four-year-tour so I would receive the GI Bill to have the rest of my college paid for.

I made the switch from being a stripper to a gigolo in 2009, when Garren James the CEO of recruited me. Life as a professional gigolo has truly shaped me, brought me much fulfillment and has made me the person I am today. In 2010, I was approached by the Showtime series “Gigolos” and have starred in every episode of all six seasons. In 2013, I released my ‘Nick Hawk Gigolo’ sex toy line which includes a dildo from my molded penis, a sex position book and over 20 other items.

I have currently released twelve singles including my hits ‘Leave With Me,’ ‘Tippin N Sippin” and ‘We Fight.’ The music video to “We Fight” was nominated for a Hollywood Music Award in 2016. Watch it here:, I also made Music Connection’s “Top 100 Unsigned Artists” list. My l track “No Competition” was featured on Eminem’s SiriusXM channel, Shade 45 “The All Out Show” and 50 Cent’s “This is 50 Show” in 2016, as well as a dope freestyle you should watch here:

I published my first book “Sexoirs of a Gigolo” in 2013, and I’ve written stories for Penthouse Magazine with plans to write more erotica in the future. I’m very excited to announce I have recently completed ‘Nick Hawk’s 100 Kicks In The Ass: A Guide To Gaining Confidence & Reaching Your Full Potential.’ This book has taken me over four years and many rewrites to complete. In 2015, I spoke at the “World Pick-Up Artist Summit,” The Global Seduction, Lifestyle and Relationship Conference and Hustler Magazine labeled me as “Confidence Man.” I now offer confidence coaching sessions, that I very much enjoy, through in-person, email, Skype and over the phone.
