Being on vacation a few weeks ago, I of course, missed a few things in the realm of action cinema and slowly but surely, I’m catching up. I hope to be fully caught up by the time I go on vacation next year.

One of the biggest things I missed was that Scott Adkins’ co-star in Triple Threat, the one and only Tiger Chen, joined him on another awesome episode of the Art of Action!

Chen has dazzled many action fans in movies like the aforementioned Triple Threat as well as others like Man of Tai Chi which pitted him against a very evil Keanu Reeves who also helmed the pic.

Check out the episode below!

In episode 32, Scott is joined by Wu Shu expert Tiger Chen who was an integral part of Yuen Wo Ping’s stunt team and Keanu Reeves’s martial arts trainer for The Matrix films. Tiger is the star of martial arts films such as Man of Tai Chi, Kung Fu Man & Triple Threat.

Next up, today, Scott premiered another new episode where he welcomes Vietnamese-American martial arts actor Johnny Trí Nguyễn who has been seen in The Protector with Tony Jaa. Trí Nguyễn has also served as a stunt pro on numerous projects as well as served as a fight choreographer.

Scott’s chat with Johnny is now live so watch it below!

In episode 33, Scott is joined by Vietnamese-American actor and martial artist Johnny Trí Nguyễn. Johnny is a Vietnamese–American actor, action choreographer, martial artist and stuntman who is mainly known for appearing in The Protector with Tony Jaa and starring in the Vietnamese action films The Rebel in 2007 and The Clash in 2009.
