I remember Jet Li's first movie Shaolin Temple in one of Oakland's theaters around 1983. I loved it. All the actors in the movie were martial arts experts. Jet Li was awesome because he was the National Wushu Champion.
Throughout his acting career and as a martial artist, Jet Li has conquered his nemesis - himself. He has reached his plateau so he's able to let go.
I admire Jet Li's fearlessness. I will miss his action movies.
