Learn the moves behind Tarantino's Kill Bill

Let movie Star David Carradine lead you through this special introduction to Kung Fy, with a selection of exercises designed to help both strengthen and relax your mind and body with ancient techniques perfected over the centuries, the same techniques that would influence the choreographed fight scenes in Tarrintino's 'Kill Bill'. These ancient physical art forms use stretching, deep breathing and invigorating circular motion to gently awaken and loosen your entire body, improving balance, co-ordination and suppleness.

I was in a pub and David Carradine was showing off doing his martial arts. Someone in the other bar chucked a packet of peanuts at him when he wasn't looking. He calmly looked up and said, "What Kung Fu that?"

R I P!!!

Should never have been in Kung Fu - he only got the part cos Bruce Lee was genuinely eastern and the US TV couldn't risk an asian/oriental as the lead in a show.

That would be forgivable in itself, that wasn't Caradine's fault. But his claims of teaching Bruce Lee make it hard for me to mourn his passing.

:roll: Where did you read such tosh? Oh wait a minute don't tell me... National Enquirer? :roll: Would you care to substantiate your claims by providing at least one 'legitimate' link to your claims above?

I seek not to know the answers, but to understand the questions.

Was he working on his new book....

Doesn't take long to find such claims on the net. I think they also mention it in the film of Bruce Lee's life, 'Dragon - The Bruce Lee Story.' This is from wikipedia.

"In her memoirs, Bruce Lee's widow asserts that Lee actually created the concept for the series, which was then stolen by Warner Bros. However, there is no verifiable documentation of such an incident, and Herbie Pilato, in his 1993 book The Kung Fu Book of Caine: The Complete Guide to TV's First Mystical Eastern Western, commented on the casting history for the series, particularly on the involvement of both David Carradine and Bruce Lee:

Before the filming of the Kung Fu TV movie began, there was some discussion as to whether or not an Asian actor should play Kwai Chang Caine. Bruce Lee was considered for the role. In 1971, Bruce Lee wasn't the cult film hero he later became for his roles in Fists of Fury (1971), Enter the Dragon (1973), and Game of Death (1978). At that point he was best known as Kato on TV's Green Hornet (1966-1967) (Kung Fu guest actor Robert Ito reports that Lee hated the role of Kato because he "thought it was so subservient"). "In my eyes and in the eyes of Jerry Thorpe," says Harvey Frand, "David Carradine was always our first choice to play Caine. But there was some disagreement because the network was interested in a more muscular actor and the studio was interested in getting Bruce Lee." Frand says Lee wouldn't have really been appropriate for the series — despite the fact that he went on to considerable success in the martial arts film world. The Kung Fu show needed a serene person, and Carradine was more appropriate for the role. Ed Spielman agrees: "I liked David in the part. One of Japan's foremost Karate champions used to say that the only qualification that was needed to be trained in the martial arts was that you had to know how to dance. And on top of being an accomplished athlete and actor, David could dance." Nonetheless, grumbling from the Asian community would have made sense, given the fact that minor roles for Asian actors were almost nonexistent. James Hong, an actor on the show and ex-president of the Association of Asian/Pacific American Artists (AAPAA) says that at the time Asian actors felt that "if they were going to do a so-called Asian hero on Kung Fu, then why don't they hire an Asian actor to play the lead? But then the show went on, we realized that it was a great source of employment for the Asian acting community." In fact, Hong says, Carradine had a good relationship with the Asian community. "

Casting my mind back to the Bruce Lee days and how Carradine got the job. In those days "Enter the Dragon" was released in 1973. Vietnam war ended in 1975 after extensive use of a chemical weapons of mass destruction called "Agent Orange". David Carradine did Kung Fu 1972 -1975. Martin Luther King was assassinated in 1968. Hollywood was not ready then to have a non-white lead actor. TV's in UK was showing USA B&W Cowboy and Indian ethnic cleansing films. Those days were the era when David Carradine did "Kung Fu". Circa 1970 also marked the "end" of the Ku Klux Klan. Ethnic minority interests did not emerge until Alex Hailey came along with "Roots" in 1977 as a TV series. How times had dramatically change in USA and Obama is president in 2009. This revolution took less than 40 years...God Bless America... the land of the free.

Maybe he was practicing the "five finger death move" when it all got out of hand....

According to one of today's tabloids, his agent is insisting it was murder as his hands were tied behind his back.

I heard it wasn't suicide, it was an apparent accident while he was practicing a new form of martial arts - Hung Fu
