Wushu is an ancient Chinese fighting style that has retained its allure in contemporary times. Wushu professionals in the competitive sports and film industries are among the brave practitioners who take the grace and power of this ancient martial art to the masses, making it relevant thousands of years since its creation. Two of these masters of the art join host Kimchi Chow in this conversation. Sarah Chang is an American actress, producer, stunt coordinator, and a five-time USA National Wushu Team member. She is best known for producing and starring in the movie Circle of Bones, where she won the Best Actress Award in the Vegas Movie Awards. Alfred Hsing became the first Asian-American to win a gold medal at the World Wushu Championships. He subsequently became an actor, stuntman, and stunt coordinator. The work of people like Sarah and Alfred has kept the art of Wushu alive for future generations to enjoy. Listen to them share their experience in making this happen, and learn a lot of things along the way.
