Two of the most iconic martial artists in the industry, 11 time World Kickboxing Champion Don ‘The Dragon’ Wilson and the “Queen of Martial Arts Film” Cynthia Rothrock are teaming up for one of the most anticipated films in years The Martial Arts Kid.
The film follows troubled teen Robbie who moves to Cocoa Beach, Florida from Detroit after his grandmother has had enough of his antics and he soon realizes that everywhere he goes there is somebody who doesn’t want him to be happy… and in Cocoa Beach, that somebody is Bo Whitelaw, the toughest and most popular guy at the high school. From the moment Bo gives Robbie a beat-down in front of Rina, we know Robbie’s chances of living in a happy neighborhood are just not realistic. To help Robbie stand a chance of survival in a dangerous teen world, his estranged Aunt Cindy and Uncle Glen are there to coach and train him. Along the way, Robbie learns defensive skills that will give him a chance to defend himself, but will that be enough to protect himself from Bo in an all-out epic battle and ever become ‘the man’ in Rina’s eyes?
As if the excitement of getting these two action icons back together on screen again wasn’t enough of a reason to check out this film, it is stepping up its game to bring a who’s who in the martial arts world together including Bill “Superfoot” Wallace, TJ Storm, Matthew Ziff, Nassim Lahrizi, making his film debut and so many more. The film is getting ready to kick off production in Florida and already has a percentage of the funding, but a project like this with this caliber of martial arts talent is unheard of and deserves so much more. The martial arts community is more than just a bunch of people training, but a family so what better way to bring them all together than a Kickstarter campaign that allows the film to raise the money it needs to step it up and allow the fans and martial artists around the world become a part of history.
As with any Kickstarter, with each level of donation there are incentives including autographs, copies of the film, walk on roles, apparel and so much more. This is not only going to be a great film but a piece of martial arts history, so don’t miss out on the chance to be a part of it.
