Since its father controlled Chinese combat equipment, he taught this Jackie already early in his childhood. At the age of seven years it its parents sent on China drama Academy, the Peking opera - to school (a kind boarding school, itself upCombat haven, singing and play specialized) under line of the strict master Yu Jim Yuen, thereby the hyper+active, unartige Jackie there and. A. Discipline, in addition, fighting (among other things the Chinese Wing Chun Kung Fu) and actors to learn could.

It was sent on this school, because itsParents in Australia a work assumed and it not to carry forward could not. The training at this school was hard: The pupils are from the morning-grey to midnight with among other things Akrobatik, dance, singing, “service” and vintages and letter (which possessed however a quite small value) employ, asPunishment were not impacts rarity.
