Jet Li a worldwide known Martial artist that was brought up in
Jet Li a worldwide known Martial artist that was brought up in the Beijing Sports and Exercise School. Where he endured a full day of training of Martial Arts (Wu Shu). He lost his father at a young age and his mother was now the only parent to five kids. Jet Li was the youngest of a very poor family. When he was chosen to be a part of the Martial Arts program at the Beijing school he was honored, his mother wanted him to go so he could eat every meal, have cloths to wear, and have a good place to live. He went through 6 days of training a week and suffered through a foot and head injury. He train through all of it to become the best he could be. He won many competitions including Gold medals in the China National Martial Arts Competition, Medals in Chinas own Olympic Games, the Youth National Championship, ect. After he won many big championships he became a big superstar in show the show business. This book shows you how the training to become a Martial Arts champion made him to be a star across the world. The major message is that if you work hard at something you can become anything that you want to be. I did like the book but some parts in the book where not need considering it’s about Jet Li not his teacher, Wu Bin or actor Bruce Li, but overall it really inspires you to do something with your life even if you don’t have many things in your life. Jet Li still became something without money involved and came out with a lot of money after he dedicated his life to Martial arts. If you are into Martial arts it a good read for you, considering it talks about some important things about Martial arts and about someone who really benefited from the life of Martial arts. ~ Kristina

The next big action star -- if there's any justice!
I have been a big fan of Hong Kong action films since the days they could be seen only in theaters in Chinatown. I watched the rise and fall of Bruce Lee, then welcomed Jackie Chan and the others. Now I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Jet Li is going to be as big or bigger than any of them. And if he does, then this book will have played a major role in his success -- by telling us where Jet Li came from and where he's going.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
