The best inspiring actors of all time in the martial arts to me are Bruce Lee and Jean Claude. Their movies actually made you want to get off your ass and train. First it was Bruce in the 70s and in the 80s was Van Damme then nobody films were inspiring to me. Jackie chan was just a goof ball i never took him seriously, jet li was good, but even then i still wasn't that inspired by him are anyone else. Why? Im still trying to figure it out myself. Maybe its because everyone has surpassed them or martial arts movies have took the wrong path leading towards violence instead of the spirit. Speaking of martial arts movies changing even Van Dammes movies led to action not focusing on martial arts. They just dont make good martial arts movies like they used to anymore. I remember when i first got into martial arts i would think of Bruce Lee when i hit the heavy bag and scream like him. I wasn't trying to be disrespectful of him that's just how inspired i was of him. Same goes with van damme and the splits being able to kick high. I wish other actors had that connection with its audience to bring positivity in life and inspire others to better themselves.
