Dr. Yuen, your Kung Fu master, will also be there. Are you working with him still?



I’ve always been involved with him. He’s been my Kung Fu master for almost 40 years. Rob Moses will also be there. He started out as a student of Dr. Yuen’s, became an instructor and took over the school for a while. Rob’s become my at-home master. He’s going to be illustrating how many innovations he’s made with martial arts.

I didn’t know he had a kung fu master. It’s just like all those americans who had at the time the same kung fu master as Bruce Lee. So funny.

What did you think? That he learned martial arts all by himself? :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue:

Good interview. Carradine has been very taken aback by Quentin, he’s not the first to be affected this way and won’t be the last. I like how actors are told to stick to the script, how else can Quentin make the film his own? I just really like the idea of auteurism.

AHah, no but he could just have a kung fu trainer for movies only. A kung fu master is more like a spiritual mentor, not just a sport trainer. You know what I mean ?
