Not sure about William Shatner. Robert Conrad studied Kajukenbo with John Leoning. Robert Culp studied Kenpo with Ed Parker.Danjo said:William Shatner- Supreme Grand Master of Kirk-Fu. Seriously though, he did study karate for a long time, though I don't know what it was. Same with Robert Conrad, and Robert Culp.
Mark's primary system is Kajukenbo (Won Hop Kuen Do branch). Last I heard he was 3rd degree. Capoeira was something he picked up for the movies, from the Oakland, Ca. Kajukenbo guys.phlaw said:Mark Dacascos holds belts in a few systems I believe including Capoeira.
Ernie Reyes Jr holds belts in TKD and Muay Thai I think also.
HI John,John Bishop said:Mark's primary system is Kajukenbo (Won Hop Kuen Do branch)
Yes, from his Father GM Al, and also his mother Malia (formerly Dacascos) Bernal.Dragon Fist said:HI John,
Marc studied Won Hop Kuen Do from his father Al Dacascos, correct?
Do you know if Al Dacascos studied Kajukenbo under Sid Asuncion or Professor Adriano Emperado or both?
The sliding side kick was a Chung Do Kwan technique before Bruce ever appeared on the screen. My Instructor told us stories of his Instructor, Woon Kyu Uhm, contacting people with it from 10 feet away. Additionally, I have footage of Korean Army officers from what appears to be the 60's or earlier breaking boards with it. So it is a Tae Kwon Do technique, and was before Bruce had ever heard of it.AC_Pilot said:The burning side step kick of Bruce's... I have never heard of being TKD, although Bruce took from any art/concept he could, and modified it for better real world applicability. Chuck Norris was heavily influenced by Bruce..in creating his own style of fighting.
can i get a hallelujah?The Kai said:"We don't all worship Bruce Lee"
Amen to that
I think he just went through some training, but i could be mistaken... I'm looking into it right now and so far unsuccessful.Dragon Fist said:Dose anyone know if Christian Bale (the lead in the movie Equilibrium) is a martial artist? Or did he just study a couple of weeks to prepare for the movie?
