As far as his film background goes he has worked on numerous television shows and films as a stunt fighter, actor and fight choreographer. His A- list of films include, "The Bodyguard", "Out of Sight", "Hannibal", "Bad Boys II" and the soon to be released Miami Vice movie. Maybe a little respect for some of the guys who laid the groundwork for you before you start slinging stones.

    Looking forward to your comments.
    Hi Joe! :ninjadanc
