Meeting a legend – Hwang Jang-lee

Kung-fu Kingdom’s Glen Stanway and Raj Khedun (pictured above) had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing THE legendary super-kicker of martial arts cinema, the mighty Hwang Jang-lee!

Hwang was in London as part of the re-launch of Eastern Heroes magazine, and to take part in an extensive “Q & A” at the SENI Combat & Strength Show. Hwang also shared some of his legendary fighting skills with lucky students at a special training seminar on Sunday.

Famous for his roles in films with Jackie Chan such as “Drunken Master and “Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow“, “Secret Rivals“, “The Snuff Bottle Connection”, Hwang Jang-lee is a firm fan favourite, who nicknamed him “Silver Fox” after some of his more popular roles.

Hwang Jang Lee is renowned for his incredible kicking skills and more often than not, playing the villain. In reality though, you couldn’t meet a nicer gentleman! Relaxing in his hotel, Hwang was friendly and chatty, with a great sense of humour! Although he will turn 70 years old in December, he is in extremely good health and yes folks, he still has the moves!

Kung-fu Kingdom would like to say a thank you to Ricky Baker and Toby Russell for arranging such an amazing event and meeting. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

Stay tuned for Kung-fu Kingdom’s exclusive report and interview!

Influenced by the movies of Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan, Glen began training in martial arts and gymnastics in 1995. He made his first of many visits to Malaysia and Singapore in 1998 to learn Chin Woo kung fu under the supervision of Master Teng Wie Yoo. Glen is the author of "The Art of Coaching" and "Fearless The Story of Chin Woo Kung Fu", and runs a kung fu & kickboxing school in Hertfordshire, England.
