Health How Watching Television as a Kid Made Me a More Disciplined Grown Up Today ———- When I was a young lad at public school, long before I graduated to the harsher days of highschool, I believed there were three kinds of heroes: One: The superhero – ones like Spiderman who could triumph over evil despite looking pretty dodgy in their day-glo costumes. Two: The anti-hero – like the Incredible Hulk who tried to help people but was still treated like an outcast of society. Three: The everyday hero – normal folks like you and I who could do superhero acts, with just a little bit of training — like firemen. Even though the first two types were impressive enough, you never felt like you could be just like them. I mean, how many times would an overdose of gamma radiation personally hit you? But the third type of hero Anybody could be like them, even a funny little kid like me. And, nowhere was this truer than in the TV show ‘Kung Fu’. Maybe it was because it was so normal that I liked it that much. The hero didn’t appear like the Hulk on the juice, and he didn’t have to wear a mask to hide who he was he’d take on everyone and be proud to show who he was. All I knew was that between 1972 and 1975, at exactly 6:00pm, I’d be in front of the TV, hunched just like a meditating Chinese martial artist myself. The show was also the first thing to introduce me to one of my favorite actors as well, David Carradine, who played the main character, Kwai Chang Cain. Okay, so he may not be the greatest actor on the screen, but you show me someone who is as cool and laid-back as him and I’d bet David Carradine could lay the smack down on them. The fact that he was actually a trained martial artist made ‘Kung Fu’ an even better television show, since he seemed to me just as scrawny as I was! Born of an Chinese mother and American father, Cain orphaned and an outcast, and maybe I related to that, as my father died when I was very young, too. Taken in by Shaolin monks, they turn this scrawny little kid into the guy that even Bruce Lee would respect. Discovering he has a half-brother called Danny, Cain (as an adult) he sets out on a journey across America to locate him. Though no particular episodes stood out for me as a kid, I always remembered the little lessons in every episode the philosophy of why I should strive to better myself through honor and discipline. It must have worked, because 30 years later, I’m one belt away from achieving my black belt in karate. When I discovered that you could get the .plete ‘Kung Fu’ TV series, I almost peed my pants (but my great karate discipline stopped me, thank goodness!), since I never enjoyed the newer version of the series (which also starred Carradine as a descendent of Cain, and was shown in the ni.ies). Now all I need is my own little group of kids in my dojo, so I can share with them what made me the man I am now. ———- About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
