‘I train when I am sick, I train when I am tired. I train when I don’t feel like it.” – Jackie Chan
This week in every class we will be working on learning how to do fun realistic movie fight scenes. Many of the AmeriKick sensei’s have worked on martial arts films and attended stunt school. Sharon Tosten and Mark Russo worked as stunt people for Jay Leno’s episode in Philadelphia. Dennis Tosten, Mark Gallagher, Mark Russo, and Chris Millares have appeared in films and Sharon has done stunts for rock videos with groups such as Metallica.
You will be learning to perform stunts and fight scenes the same as the professionals do.
1. Watch A Jackie Chan Movie: The master of action is Jackie Chan. When you see him fight try to look at the “bad guys.” How they flip and fall is some of what you will be learning this week. A good stunt person always make a star like Jackie Chan look great.
2. Bring In A Friend: This is a great week to bring a friend into class with you. You both will learn fun drills that you can practice together.
