He is the fourth child of a housewife and a tailor. When he was 11 years old in 1971, his family moved to Los Angeles, California, USA, and lived in a two-bedroom apartment in the area known today as Koreatown. Little is known about his early training, but it has been revealed that he only started practicing martial arts at the age of 19, which was considered quite late by the standards. He enrolled at California State University, while also taking Kenpo (Karate) classes. However, he was not satisfied with karate, so he quickly quit it, and a year later came across a group of Wu Shu practitioners who had come to Los Angeles from Beijing.
