Early Life

Chan Kong-sang was born in Hong Kong, China, on April 7, 1954. Chan, aged 7, was sent to Hong Kong’s Chinese Opera Research Institute to study after his parents moved to Australia for new jobs. The next ten years were a blur.

Jackie Chan was offered a job as a stuntman by Willie Chan, a Hong Kong film producer. Chan was the lead in the film, called “New Fist of Fury”. It didn’t do well because Chan couldn’t display Bruce Lee’s style of martial arts, and the entire movie was supposed to be modeled after him.

Chan was a part of the 1978 film ‘Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow’, which was a huge success in Chan’s film career. Chan was free to do whatever stunts he wanted. This film helped to establish comedy kung fu, which was very popular among the Hong Kong crowd.
