Jackie Chan

Post by Si »

I'm assuming that "doing a Jackie Chan", complete with sound effects, to get on your bike is taught country wide and not just around here (otherwise no one will know what the heck I'm on about)?
Well, it's finally happened. "Do a Jackie Chan" we said, accompanied by the "eeee-ya" and the kids just looked at us blankly. "You do know who Jackie Chan is don't you?"..."No"..."Bruce Lee?"..."no".

Suddenly feel old :oops: .

I'm not totally convinced of his suitability as a role model, going on the evidence.

Probably even Jet Li is past it now for the kids, which really makes me feel old.

I'm in my forties and only just remembered that reference. Ppl in primary school or early teens will have no chance.

Kung foot panda might work but only the preying mantis character does his kicks right like the op needs I reckon.

Is there any live action movie star that fresh enough for kids to know about?
