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:

Watching Jackie Chan movies and a Thai movie called Gerd ma lui (1986) influenced him to do stuntwork and eventually become a action star, but he says his biggest influence is Bruce Lee. See more »
