From e-commerce mogul to martial artist really quick — looks like Jack Ma is ready to cross over to another career!
Billionaire Jack Ma is taking on another hat as he stars in Jet Li’s newest film “Gong Shou Dao”, where he plays a tai chi master!
Interestingly, Jack Ma has been practicing the martial art of tai chi since 1988, which means that the moves he shows off in the film are all his own. In the trailer, Jack Ma is seen battling various opponents possessing different martial arts skills such as boxing, sumo wresting, and taekwondo.
The movie also has some serious clout, with another list of A-list actors and renowned martial artists joining the cast: Donnie Yen of “Rogue One” is in the movie, as well as Taekwondo black belter Natasha Liu Bordizzo, former Mongolian sumo grand champion Asashoryu Akinori , and Thai martial artist Tony Jaa.
Watch out at the end as British action actor Jason Statham, and our own boxing champ Manny Pacquiao have some challenging words for Jack Ma worth looking forward to!
