Fight Choreography

Fight Choreography

"When I get hit and knocked flat, my stuntmen don't worry about it, they know that's what I want"

".....You only see 14 upside down sit-ups on the screen, but I really did 26 of them in row"

" We shot this kicking sequence twenty times(DMII), so twenty times I got kicked in the solar plexus.....".

" Most people who choreograph martial arts films in the U.S. only know how to fight. They don't know about their audiences and the effects needed to excite that audience. "

" If it takes me months just to get a few minutes worth of great fights, that's okay...."

" A fight should flow like a choreographed dance routine, but more importantly, the fight must 'play well' without sound effects.
