For those of you who know Jim Carrey better as one of the world’s greatest comedians, he is also a highly skilled martial artist, as we have mentioned before on KFK. Long before his rise to fame as one of the greatest physical comedians of all time, Jim Carrey was long fascinated by all things martial arts, spending every waking moment since his own birth studying every martial art ever devised. As a youth, Jim Carrey would later travel to China where he was accepted as a disciple at the famed Shaolin Temple. We’ve even obtained some exclusive footage of his time as a Shaolin disciple:
However, after years of studying the Shaolin way, the idealistic Jim Carrey returned to Los Angeles to achieve his dream of making it in Hollywood. Prior to his rise to fame, he established his own dojo in Los Angeles, always careful to teach students under an alias in order to keep his enemies from uncovering his martial arts lineage. Here is additional exclusive footage from Master Carrey’s days passing on his boundless warrior knowledge to enable women to protect themselves in any situation:
Needless to say, Master Carrey is now known primarily as one of the world’s great comedians, yet his martial arts skills are no joke. That’s why UK audiences are strongly advised to check out “Dumb and Dumber To”, which has just seen its official UK release this past weekend – the martial arts sequence seen in the film puts to shame anything that Tony Jaa, Jackie Chan, or Jean-Claude Van Damme have ever done.
