Jet Li is one of those rare Asian performers whose real name is unknown outside his native tongue. Li Lianjie, also known by his stage name Jet Li, was a Chinese-American screenwriter, martial arts fighter, and stuntman who was professionally born in Beijing, the capital of China. He trained for several years in Kung Fu before studying acting but did not begin to feature in mainstream media until decades later. During this time, his real name was Michael Takatsuno. He moved to Hong Kong in the late eighties, where he starred in both Hong Kong television shows and films there, including the well-received Kung Mangai movie.

When Hong Kong saw an upsurge in pro-wrestling talent, Li began honing his martial arts skills and became a popular fighter in the region. In the late eighties, Li began to receive notice from the United States when he appeared in Hong Kong action movies directed by Jackie Chan. There, he would team with another martial arts expert, Bruce Lee, and form the well-known Hong Kong triad that included Chow Sha Pu, or “Chewie”, and stuntman flying man, Donny Yen. Together, the three created Hong Kong’s very popular Chan masters. The Hong Kong film industry has used the three to feature in some of their best movies to date.

Most Noticeable Fight Scenes

Jet Li in Unleashed

His most notable fight scene came from his involvement in the Kung Fu movie HardBoiled Armor, in which he battles the martial arts expert Rasengan. In the movie, he faces off against Rasengan who is trained by none other than Master Jeong Kwon. The two men spend the entire movie battling, with Rasengan eventually being defeated when Li uses his newest weapon, the Iron Fist. Although the movie looks like it may take up to seventy-five minutes to finish, the fight is quite brief.

Jet Li is also known for his involvement in the Hong Kong series of the same name, which was filmed in and around his native Hong Kong. He would make many appearances, such as his brief battle against the villainous Tai Lung, as well as his appearances in the later episodes, where he would go up against the good guy, Master Wai Ko Wai. The series was a huge success and followed the same format as the original Hardboiled Armor, with each episode following a new storyline. One of the fights that he was featured in, however, was his encounter with the martial arts legend Bruce Lee on the set of the movie Enter the Ninja.

Li’s work also appears in the Hong Kong film Dark Phoenix, which was made by the Hong Kong-based production company Tiger Caged Animal. In this movie, Li plays the role of Tai Chi practitioner Kiu Sau. The character learns that he possesses the ability to channel the Phoenix Force, which gives him the ability to defeat enemies both physically and mentally.

As the Phoenix Force flows through him, he transforms into the powerful fighter jet, Silver Crow. This movie, along with its sequel, Ghost in the Shell: The Fall of Nodame Namo, has become the big hits in the Chinese movie industry.

Some different actors have also taken on the role of Li.

These include Samuel Jackson, who played a part in the Kung Fu blockbuster epic Return of the Monkey King, as well as Hong Kong icons Donny Yen and Michael Mandrell. There is no doubt that Li is among the finest martial arts fighters to have ever lived.

However, he might just have been one of the most accomplished and best-known when he appeared in the early fifties spy film Dr. No, playing the role of Dr. Richard Simms. Regardless of the genre in which he was involved, the man certainly enjoyed a successful career.
