Sifu Yu Chan-Yuan

(Jackie's Sifu at The Opera School(Zhongguo Xiju Xueyuan)

"I remember Jackie as very smart and very naughty, he always liked to fool around. But naughty boys learn fast. If you want to become an actor, you can't be moody or quiet. You must be more active. Jackie wasn't at all shy. Once on stage, he would give whatever he had.
....There were many boys as good as he. In terms of ability in Peking opera, there were certainly better ones than he. His great success is a surprise. I guess it's just a matter of individual opportunity and pure luck.
.....Jackie Chan is pretty good, but he doesn't expose all of his ability. He hasn't shown all the kung-fu he knows. "
