Most of you here probably know me from my near 40 years in the Martial Arts, and my Action Movie Career. As an only son, for the last 10 years I’ve been focused on taking care of my ailing Mother who passed in 2014 at 89 Years old, and most recently my 94 year old Father passed from end stage Parkinson’s. He was interred at Arlington Nation Cemetery with Full Military Honors. Now that I have moved to my home in Florida, I want to reach out to my International Friends and fans and get involved while continuing to pursue my passion for Martial Arts, helping implement Children programs (after school programs and Martial Arts in-school classes), Refugee and Environmental issues around the world.

As my duties as a devoted son have now been fulfilled, I look forward to making appearances at events, and showing up to support causes and making a difference. My family is all of you, and I look forward to what the future brings!  Please join my mailing list, visit my blog and keep in touch.  Use the contact form below to reach me or on the various QR Code images on the site to contact me at any time.

Jet Li, Donnie Yen fight scenes homage to Bruce Lee, great stunt work and fight choreography

Jet Li, Donnie Yen fight scenes homage to Bruce Lee, great stunt work and fight choreography
February 8, 2019 lorenavedon

As most people already know Jet Li is a wushu champion turned Hong Kong movie star… many moons ago he did “Lethal Weapon 4” and was introduced to more main stream Hollywood “A” films and from there he became a legend internationally.  That is because Richard (Dick) Donner, the director/producer of all the “Lethal Weapon” films, was smart enough to, as Clint Eastwood said and I agree with; “Hire the Best and let them do their job”.  Dick Donner turned over all of the second unit fights for LW4 with Jet Li to a Hong Kong director I worked with, the legendary Corey Yuen Quai.  Yuen Quai and I did “No Retreat, No Surrender II, Raging Thunder” together way back in 1986.  BTW, Yuen Quai’s salary for LW4 was a fat $1,000,000!

So check out this fight scene homage to Bruce Lee where Jet Li absolutely leaves no doubt that he is the man, the myth, and the Chinese legend that Bruce Lee, the one and only original, truly is. As a side note, I have heard from inside sources that Jet has some rheumatoid arthritis and/or other health issues and is in China these days doing the best he can. I can relate as I am no spring chicken now either, and age is the master of us all.  (Don’t worry all, I’m ok) “The light that burns brightest burns out first”… but then as a world class athlete, no matter martial arts or any other discipline we are all blood and bone, and “better to burn out than fade away”!

Let me know what you think about this amazing fight scene with Jet Li, and the others with Donnie Yen… to me Jet IS the Bruce Lee of the later 20th century, and Donnie the Bruce Lee of the 21st Century. IP Man says it all about Donnie…
