Then, 1, 5-2 hours spend exercises Taiji (traditional Shaolin martial art) and Karate kata. Once the body is warmed up move on to the Chinese occupation stretching legs. This procedure is fundamentally different from all that we have. You can call it more gentle. There are many examples when the Chinese in 70-100 years can easily do the splits. Morning warm-up takes me about 3-3, 5:00, and then I go to the gym. Depending on the mood choose how things will flow exercise. Or I go to the box, or in a rocking chair, or to fight ».

Of course, I tried to combine all sorts of shooting on working with active employment, but such a combination is not always good. During operation, and shooting is not always feel okay in terms of psychology. Like the whole day doing nothing, and in the evening you can not speak a word of fatigue. If I get a day off for the day I can go outside and deal with up to 12 nights. Prior to filming those that occupy almost the whole day trying to maximize load. Even with such a busy schedule of twice a year, I try to fly to Thailand for at least two weeks, and sometimes for a month ».

With this film, we try to show the younger generation that is now among us, too, there are such people. Now I'm going to India to begin filming a new project. We want to show people the other side of those places where they like to go on vacation, whether it's Turkey, Thailand, Egypt and India.
