In the 6 minute video above you will see Taimak (Bruce Leroy in The Last Dragon) at the request of the moderator punch a board in half. This happens before a sold out 30th Anniversary screening of The Last Dragon at The Dallas/Fort Worth Alamo Drafthouse. The board is held by his Last Dragon co-star Ernie Reyes Jr.
Ernie made his acting debut in The Last Dragon and later went on to star in movies such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, Surf Ninjas and The Rundown.
In the video Taimak says that he hasn’t broken a board in about 30 years since his teacher at the time, martial arts legend Ron Van Clief, said this sort of thing was a bad idea. Not wanting to disappoint the packed theatre, Taimak obliges the request, while the fans chant “Leroy! Leroy! Leroy!”
Taimak is currently on The Last Dragon’s 30th Anniversary Celebration Tour. You can keep up with all of his appearances from his website: iamtaimak.com and his Facebook Fan Page: Taimak’s Fan Page, Twitter: @iamtaimak or Instagram: @iamtaimak
