Sammo Hung


 He starred with Bruce Lee, choreographed the battles in the films of Jackie Chan, John Woo and others. Sammo Hung in the 1980s played a significant role in shaping the kung fu action movie genre as it is known now.  Nowadays, Sammo Hung is one of the most influential figures in Hong Kong cinema, on his account more than 170 different projects.

 Despite his physique, he is an excellent kung fu master and the eldest of the famous seven (Seven Little Fortunes)

 As a child, Hong Kam-Bo was raised by his grandfather and grandmother, as his parents were busy working in the fast-growing film industry in Hong Kong.  From an early age, Hun dreamed of speaking to the public.  His grandfather, in order to protect his grandson from the influence of the streets, wanted to put him in school.  But Hun decidedly did not like the ordinary school, so, on the advice of his friends ("maybe he’ll learn something there"), his grandfather decided to send him to the Beijing Opera School - the Beijing Opera Academy.  And so in 1960, when Kam-Bo was only eight years old, he was sent to study at the Academy.  At first, Sifu (teacher) Yu Jim-Yuen was not at all sure of Hun's abilities because of his large size (young Kam-Bo always had a weakness for food).  But soon, Yu was impressed by Hun's acrobatic prowess and, perhaps more importantly, by his stern manners, which, as Yu seemed, could help him keep the rest of his students in check.  Hun was officially enrolled in the school and received a new name Yuen Chu (all students accepted the name Yuen out of respect (and fear) for their sif).

 The difficult times of Hun and other well-known graduates of the Academy, such as Jackie Chan, Ewan Biao and Cory Ewan, are well known, especially after Sammo starred in the film about the Academy “Painted Faces” (1988).

 Hong Jingbao received his nickname “San Mao”, which means “three hairs” in the Cantonese dialect of the Chinese language, from birth - that is how much hair was on his head in infancy.

 In movies, he was also credited as Hung Ching-Pao, Chin-pao Hong, Jinbao Hong, James Hung, Kam-po Hung, Sammo Hung, Samo Hung, Sanno Hung, Hung Kam Po, Hung Kim Po, Yuanlong Zhu.
