Armed and Tactically Ready

08-25-2009 01;59;01PM

Back when I lived in Hong Kong, I not only got training in Wushu martial arts, but I got the full-on S.D.U. (Hong Kong version of S.W.A.T. team) special weapons tactical unit training for another movie.  Like most guys (and some women), I really enjoyed learning new skills that involved some military training.  I don’t think any of us had a problem firing off all sorts of semi-automatic and fully-automatic weapons in various tactical assault situations, especially when we got to train alongside Hong Kong actor Lau Ching Wan (First Row Second to the Right next to me)…

Once all the ammo was popped off, it was time to disarm and derobe the assault gear for some partying.  Here we are minus the “makeup” and uniforms ( Andy On, Lau Ching Wan, David Lee, and Marco Lok)…

I wonder if Kelly Lin and Cecilia Cheung preferred us in “civilian” clothes or the uniforms?  😉

The Shaolin Days

I am having a great time digging up some old pictures from yesteryear.  Just the other day I found a few pictures of my experience at the original Shaolin Temple in Mount Song, Zheng Zhou, China…

On the steps of one of the Shaolin Temples

I had a blast spending over a month there doing some intensive martial arts training with my homie Andy On, who later took over the role of The Black Mask from Jet Li in the sequel.  Here we are with our Wu Shu coach, Kali…

We were both blown away with how many young children were attending the various Wu Shu academies in Shaolin.  From the crack of dawn until sunset, the children would be disciplined in the pugilistic art of traditional martial arts…

For many of them, this would be their only “option” in life since their family was so poor that they could not afford to take care of them anymore.  All these children could hope for one day would be to aspire to be the next Jet Li with their comprehesively-honed skills in mortal combat…

I really felt for them and the difficult life that they were presented before them.  To this day,  I still reminisce to that amazing experience and how happy and cheerful each of the young students were despite how challenging and demanding their lives may have been.

Memories like these really put our own lives back in perspective.продвижение

Blast to the Past

Everytime I get a chance to spend some time back in LA, it’s definitely a walk down memory lane.  This time, I even started rummaging through my old photo albums, which contains pictures from way before the digital camera revolution.  I’ve just started to scan some of the photos into my computer so I’ll just share a few here…

…And of course I gotta start with two of my closest HK homies who are also two of the “Godfathers” of Alive Not Dead, Daniel Wu and Terence Yin!  😉

And wait a minute…is that Jerry Yen from F4?

Hah!  Ya betcha!!  It’s great to still have these old pics to see how we all started.

I hope you enjoyed that and I’ll plan to put some more up soon!  :-)
