well i mean definitely in the beginning , i had no intention
of what so ever that what i was practising and what I’m still practising now would lead to
this to begin with but martial arts has a very very deep meaning. As far as my life
is censored because as an actor, as a martial artist, as a human being all these i have
learned from martial arts. All type of knowledge ultimately means self knowledge so therefore
there coming into and asking me to teach them not so much of how to defend themselves or
how to do somebody, rather they want to express themselves through some movement be it anger,
be it determination, or what so ever. Don’t think! Feel! It is like a finger pointing
away to the moon don’t concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly
glory. When i look around. I always learn something. that is to be always yourself.
and to express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality
and duplicate it. Ultimately martial arts means honestly expressing yourself. Now it
is very difficult to do. Mean it is easy for me to put on a show, and be cocky and be flooded
with a cocky feeling. And then feel like pretty cool and all that or i can make all kind of
phoney things, you see what i mean? blinded by it or i can show you really fancy movements.
But to express oneself honestly, not lying to one self. And to express myself honestly.
Now that, my friend, is very hard to do and you have to train, you have to keep your reflexes
so then when you want it, its there! when you want to move your moving and when you
move you are determined to move, not taking one inch , not anything less than that, if
i want to punch. Im gonna do it man and I’m gonna do it you see. So that is the type of
thing you have to train yourself into it to become one with the. Under the sky under the
heaven man, there is but one family. It just so happens that people are different. You
should look upon oneself as an actor man, i mean you will be very pleased if somebody
say “hey man you are a super actor”. It is much better than you know, super star. “you
got to admit you are a super star, if your gonna give me the truth”. I am honestly saying
this. Yes. Have been very successful, okay. I think the word “star” is i mean i do not
look upon myself as a star. I really don’t, I mean believe me man when i say it. When
you are talking about fighting . As it is. With no rules. Well baby you better train
every part of your body. And when you do punch , and I’m gonna lean forward a little bit
hoping not to break any camera angle. I mean you got to put your whole fist in to it and
snap it! And get all the energy and make this into a weapon. I said empty your mind. Be
formless. Shapeless. Like water. When you put water into a cup, It becomes the cup.
You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle. You put it in a tea pot, it becomes
the tea pot. Now water can flow, or it can crash. Be water my friend. You know what i
want to think of myself? As a human being.
