Top 5 Sexy Actors in Martial Arts Movies

Source

This is my hub on the top 5 hunkalicious (yeah, it’s probably in the slang dictionary) men who are into martial arts and they are also actors. They kick butt when they have to and do it oh, so very well too.

These men are the ones in my book who make my heart and other body parts go pitter patter.

This hub was inspired by other writers here who have similar articles. So, thank you and come with me for the ride.

By the way Bruce Lee is the undisputed king of this genre and will forever be revered.

Jason Statham

Jason Statham was born on September 12,1972 in London, England. He was a world champion diver for the Brits diving team in 1992. His first role was in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998).

He goes to the top of my list because I just whimper and simper when I see him. What a bod!! Add his martial arts and this baby’s got game.

What a great delivery boy he is in The Transporter (2002) and The Transporter 2 (2005) and 3 (2008). He can be my UPS guy anytime.

His newest movie for 2013 is Parker with costar JLo(Jennifer Lopez for those who don't know). Judging by the trailer, the tradition continues with non stop action.

Wesley Snipes

Wesley Snipes was born in Orlando, Florida on July 31,1962. He called South Bronx, home. He is a 5th degree Black Belt. His career really took off when he appeared in Michael Jackson’s video, Bad. He has lots of films to his credit.

Wesley Snipes, is a mighty fine man. He’s the man’s man. You know the type, macho and totally masculine.

Although, he might not be considered a martial artist by some people, he’s on my list. Noteworthy action films are Passenger 57(1992), Rising Sun (1993) and Blade (1998). Now, I know blade is not the typical but it does have the action.

Jet- Li

Jet Li was born on the April 26,1963, in Beijing, China. He began to train at the Beijing Wushu Academy, at a very early age. He won the Wushu world championship several times. He was involved in the film industry in China and Hong Kong before taking America by storm.

Jet Li, is hands down the best martial artist on this list. There is absolutely no doubt about his sex appeal either. Those smoldering eyes of his just pull me in. He came to my notice in Lethal Weapon 4 with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, where he played the bad guy. Catch him in one of his latest flick, The Expendables 2 (2012) with a long list of well known actors such as Jason Statham, Sly Stallone, Arnie, Jean Claude and Dolph Lundgren to name some.

Jackie Chan

Jackie Chan was born on April 7,1954 in Hong Kong. At six years of age he became an apprentice at the China Drama Academy (or "opera school"). There he was trained in music, dance and martial arts. His first role was as a stunt player in a film.

Again Jackie Chan may not be considered handsome to some people but I find him irresistible and adorable. Plus, he’s so incredibly funny too. The man has a chest full of martial arts stunts that he uses in every movie. He also does all of his own stunts. The funniest movie that I love with him in it is Rush Hour (1998) and Rush Hour 2 (2001) Rush Hour 3 (2007) with Chris Tucker. They made an awesome team.

David Carradine

David Carradine, birth name John Arthur Carradine, was born in Hollywood, California on December 8,1936, and educated at San Francisco State College. He worked as a commercial artist before he started his Hollywood career. His most memorable work in my opinion was in Kung Fu (1972) and Kung Fu:The Legend Continues (1992) the television series.


So he was in the business long before most of the rest of the people on the list were even born.

David Carradine is one of the innovators who brought this type of action to films and television in America. It didn’t hurt that he is tall and sexy too. In his Kung Fu, series he was always so humble and cool while knocking off the bad guys. You know they got what they deserved when they took him on. He's older now and has a comeback in Kill Bill 2.

David Carradine, 72, died on June 3, 2009 in Bangkok,Thailand while on location for a film. He was found hanging inside of a closet in a hotel room.

Tell me what you think

Who would be number one?

  • Jason Statham
  • Wesley Snipes
  • Jet Li
  • Jackie Chan
  • David Carradine

I like both Jackie Chan and Jet Li though I don't think them as sexy (my husband is still the sexiest man on earth :-) I like Wesley Snipes as Blade, too.

I like Jackie Chan, Jet Lee ... and you might want to add the fearless and greatest of all: Steven Segal.

Just kidding. I do like them, though. I inherited them from my son. Before being a mom it never crossed my mind to watch a martial arts film. But it's funny how one ends up liking what your kids like.

I also like the martial arts Master from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Yun Fat Chow, but he does not specialize in the genre, he's an excellent actor for any role.

rosariom~ You just hit upon one of the actors that I really don't like. That would be SS. Just can't stand him. Now, if you had said Jean Claude Van Damme, I would say, him I can tolerate and he's cute too. You gotta be sexy and all a dat to make my list lol. Thnks for your comment and for stopping by.

I'll have to check with my son. I strictly follow him in these matters so the "sexy" part does not come into consideration ... :-)

One thing is sure, the SS's films are practically sex-less, and romance is practically inexistent.

Dear Mr. Lee:

By entry into a cave such as a Mammoth looking to protect her young; a man defends his off-spring to the point of death, and that is the Catholic way. In history man has endured considerable dismay in defending their lives; and thus began the need for physical conditioning; in early Tibet began Kung-Fu; here tribesman competed by 'kicking' each other, light, then hard. Following 15,000 years of primitive defence; the Roman Catholic Registered created the military art of Karate for the Orient in Osaka; with the development of the hand 'thrust' and 'side' kick; Kung-Fu faded by 5 million 'Black' Belted of Master level at the peak of the Viet-Nam War ending officially on February 6, 1971 and Mr. Millhouse Nixon signed a treaty as confirmed at the Smithsonian Museum in Austin, Texas. The reason the former interest ended was due to the superior all Catholic fighting way; only Judo; a military fight and 'throw'; plus Kendo a style of Korean attack fully comparable to the American sport.

By 1991; boxing prevailed and Judo, Kendo and some Karate waned; today the former sparring is gaining a resurgence; in policing; the Kendo in Korea, particularly the southern perimeter has total value and can be incorporated every where.

Mr. Bruce Lee has mastered every art and will forever live with the annuals of history; he is truly a great male accomplished in the area of cartooning and singing; in his entire career in area of martial conditioning; 10 percent of his gross billing was invested to charity including one marked for Manila Island.

I thank all who care about the Catholic way of defence.!!
