Known for his powerful charisma and presence, devastating kicks, and speed, he is the archetypal on-screen bad guy and has certainly proved one of the most notorious in martial arts movie history.
You may have seen some of his other hit films like “Hitman in The Hand of The Buddha“, “Hellz Windstaff” and “Secret Rivals“, where you’ll see some of the most amazing, dazzling, high-energy kicking and fighting sequences ever put to film!
Well, Hwang Jang Lee is the real deal, a real fighter and highly respected (9th dan) teacher in Tang Soo Do as well as being a really cool actor.
We had the rare privilege of meeting him last month in London and couldn’t believe we were meeting this very same legend we used to admire for so long from all those classic kung-fu movies watched and re-watched (until the VHS tapes wore out) with awe as kids, back in the day!
Turns out Grandmaster Hwang is one of the most friendly, generous and genuine people you could ever hope to meet. Guess you can never underestimate the effect of meeting such a great person in the flesh can you?
He told us frankly about his life, career, training and interests which we’ve condensed into a 15 minute interview – we hope you like it. So, without further ado, please sit back, relax and enjoy an audience with Grandmaster Hwang Jang-lee!
