Celebrity: Donnie Yen


Martial arts is a form of expression, an expression from the inner self to your hands and legs. We humans cannot fly. Like all forms of life in our universe, a gesture, a smile, or just walking down the street is an expression. For example, I would not choreograph a person raising a right fist then the left leg in a particular order. It's the rhythm of the whole, from raising an eyebrow to the entire movie. For me, shooting, editing, and scoring rely on rhythm. It must be part of you. The essence of art is flow, the flow or images, the flow of music, the flow of communication between an artist and the audience. Certainly there are fundamental technical aspects, but in the end, it's the harmony as a whole.

Look at his training and you know, the man is a true martial artist
