THE AMAZING DONNIE YEN [USHERING BJJ TO THE HK MOVIE SCENE].
Today we are featuring Hong Kong martial artist and actor, Donnie Yen. Yen is most well known for his 2008 movie role in which he portrayed Wing Chun grandmaster, Ip Man (in a film of the same name). The 48-year-old actor is often credited with bringing MMA to China. This is due to his mastery in several arts and his incorporation of them into his movie roles. Yen is a fan and a practitioner of MMA and, a few years ago, he picked up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He currently holds the rank of purple belt. Not only is Yen a great actor and martial artist, but he proves that, regardless of age (especially in martial arts), learning is an endless endeavor.
Now watch Yen kick some ass as he incorporates Wing Chun, wrestling, and BJJ into one of the best grappling fight scenes I have ever seen.
