Personal Quote:

Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Bruce Lee are my masters; they're the inspiration for my work. Bruce Lee was a heavy fighter who threw hard punches. Jackie moves very fast and uses a lot of comedy, and Jet Li is very fluid. I've tried to combine all of their styles and added some things of my own. See more »

Trivia:

He trained himself to jump extremely high and perform complex gymnastics because he wanted to emulate the action stars he admired such as Jackie Chan and Jet Li, but didn't realize that those stars performed stunts with the assistance of wires and mats and so ended up achieving the same abilities naturally.
