When I was a teenager, my dad used to put a lot of pressure on me to be successful, and I'd really beat myself up about things like losing martial arts competitions.

I was very sickly as a kid and had a lot of allergies, so martial arts gave me the chance to feel strong.

Karate has helped me lots, otherwise I might have got lost in substance abuse or something like the things a lot of other people do.

I like the old school heavy metal bands like AC/DC and Aeromith. I like that type of music. As the director, I tried to influence the type of music the bands in the movie would play.

I try to keep the martial arts up. It's a good thing, not just physically but also for your mind. Dolph Lund

Nicolas Cage is a great actor and he's done some good action movies too.

Hollywood is great for entertaining people, it's a wonderful business but it's make-believe, you must remember that. That's one of the most important things to remember and the distinction in your own life, otherwise people get lost in their own fame, and it makes them unhappy.

There are a lot of great athletes who stop working out, and they get out of shape like everybody else in their 30s and 40s.

When I started studying acting in New York, I didn't plan to be an action hero. I just wanted to learn acting because I felt it was something I needed to try to do for myself, to express something, my inner pain, or something I couldn't get out.

People like to lay their whole life, and all of their own secrets out in front of the world. They make money off of it, and find satisfaction that way. I personally don't believe in that. I think it can be hurtful to yourself and those around you.
