    Hm. IIRC, though he was a TKD stylist, TTL was actually Taiwanese. (Am I wrong?)

    Could be his bio is so all over the place I can no longer remember. He was Chinese, Korean, then Taiwanese in many of the articles back in the day.

    I always thought he was Korean.

    No sense in drawing out this one. If you watched any movies this guy was in them. He was my favorites at first, because he was all I saw on Black Belt Theater.

    He was short and could kick over his head. He was the first I saw that would hold up his leg and do the multiple round house kick to Heel Hook kick.

    I always saw him in movies with one of my favorite actors Don Wong.

    Like the really cool beginning of,
    The Hot, The Cool, The Vicious
    YouTube - THE HOT, THE COOL AND THE VICIOUS (1976)

    Better yet how about,
    Leg Fighters (Invincible Kung Fu Legs):
    YouTube - The Leg Fighters (part 1)

    Yes, all about legs. If you have never seen this intro, you need to watch the acrobatics of the old teacher. Same monk from Shaolin vs Lama. This guy is my favorite of the underused actors.



    How about a little snake kung Fu? Long ass movie but pretty damn good.
    Snake and Crane Secret:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBJbFUyOy8Y
    How about Dragon?
    Challenge of Death (Don Wong again)

    YouTube - challenge of death





    Again it was the pointy thing that dropped him down after, I got into other Korean Kickers. This dude Also competed which garners much respect. He is also an instructor.

    Pretty sure Tan was Chinese. This was from an article in a Hong Kong MA magazine in the late 70's. He retired to Taiwan and taught TKD in Monterey Park, CA, which would seem to be pretty Chinese on both accounts. He did grow up in Korea as a youth, according to the article,

    Yes, cruising around more, he is of Chinese heritage.

    He was born in Pusan, Korea to Chinese parents. I'll still leave him here, as he was raised, trained, and lived in Korea.

    Ah the next Actor. What can I say? I actually think he was in many better movies than his teacher.

    He actually made TKD look good compared to some of the other MAers. Rarely would you find him doing an animal style. If you did, it was some obscure style that wasn't known. Many of his moves look straight out of various TKD forms.

    Of course I must be Talking about John Liu. The student who IMO eclipsed his "master." I mean as much as I like TTL, I enjoyed many more John Liu movies.

    Secret Rivals:

    Death Duel of Kung Fu:

    Fighting Ace:

    No, I really didn't like Secret Rivals. I still don't.

    Here is something a little more modern "City of Violence". The guy who stars in this used to be the stunt coordinator for a lot of the Korean action flicks

    I can't access youtube at work, unfortunately, but if we're referencing modern films... Phillip Kwok of Venoms fame did a turn as the bad guy in Hard Boiled, the shoot-em-up starring Chow Yun Fat. I don't think he did any kung fu, but he did some amazing gun play and stunts. And he was simply fantastic as a villain.

    Nothing to do with Korean kickers, of course, but I had to mention it.

    Well Look what I found.

    Okay so here is another underused good kicker. He never got to the status of the other kickers in this thread. He made one of my all time favorite Movies called "The Loot." What makes this weird to me is the fact I stumbled across it after I had kids. I have always enjoyed Monkey Kung Fu so, I always searched out any movie good or bad using this style.

    This movie popped up and I bought with no clue of the quality. It is one of the silliest and fun movies I have seen and that includes some of Jackie and Sammo's best. Of course, it isn't as good as their best, but it is in my top ten Kung fu comedies.


    He also has a pretty quick guest starring role in this movie:
