One of a few Americans, to star in kung-fu movies, he was discovered by Eternal Films - when the company was filming Bruce Lee: The Man & The Myth, (in the United States). He was used as an extra, until one of the choreographers noticed him practicing a few moves, with some friends. They began training him and signed him to an exclusive contract, that would last for (3) years.
He was (15) years old, when he starred in his 1st film - Soul Brothers Of Kung Fu. In addition to his training in Kenpo Karate - under Steve Sanders (the guy Jim Kelly visits at the Karate school & shakes hands with, before going off to Han's tournament). He studied Leopard-style kung-fu during the Summer with Liang Shao-Sung (who was one Shaw Bros' main choreographers, during the early 60's and 70's) which he used in his best film, A Hard Way To Die.
He loved making movies, but not at the expense of his education. Therefore, he could only make films in the Summer (a stipulation strongly enforced by his mother). On film, he comes off looking just as good as Kelly (especially in the kicking-department), as they (obviously) wanted him to be well-rounded. After the limelight faded, he pretty much became a family man, with occasional appearances here and there. I once saw a tape of him refereeing a Point Tournament, in the late 80's. Said to own a Camera shop in California, he (like his friend Billy Chong) has often thought, about making a comeback.
