Kung Fu Master: Zhao Jianying

Kung Fu Master: Zhao Jianying

30-Minute Documentary (2012)

86-year-old Kung Fu Master, Zhao Jianying was born on Wudang Mountain in China’s Hubei province. As a child she suffered severe illness, until one day a soldier noticed how sick she was and offered to teach her Kung Fu, an art form that literally saved her life. Though she was a girl and it was uncommon at that time for girls to learn Kung Fu, it was her passion for Kung Fu that shaped her life.

Not only is she the first female disciple of Five Elements Fist, a form of Wudang Kung Fu, but she is also the National Representative Heir of Wudang Kung Fu.

In June 2010, D3 Productions and Host Julie Courtney went to Danjiangkou City, where Master Zhao lives. Julie takes viewers through Danjiangkou City and Wudang Mountain to the impressive and historic locations where Master Zhao practices. From meeting her family, friends, and students, to joining a class at Master Zhao’s Kung Fu school, to going into her kitchen to learn how to make jiaozi (Chinese dumplings), Kung Fu Master: Zhao Jianying provides an intimate glimpse into the life of one of the most respected Kung Fu Masters in China.
