Fortunately, the person who initially motivated him to become an action actor eventually became the key figure who facilitated his entry into the film and television industry.

In 2007, he participated in a Chinese talent show dedicated to selecting individuals with the potential to succeed Chan, and stood out.

He won the opportunity to be instructed by Chan in becoming a professional action actor, and later joined the cast of Chan's action-comedy movie Little Big Soldier (2010).

Currently juggling film industry engagements, he also manages a Wing Chun school in Beijing, passing down the teaching methods of his mentor, Mei.

"Students are drawn to Wing Chun for its traditional cultural aspects and theories, rather than seeking combat skills for entertainment," he notes.

White-collar workers in Beijing, he adds, driven by curiosity and appreciation for cultural heritage, form the bulk of the school's demographic.

"I emphasize the historical significance of martial arts and encourage students to explore its evolution."

Liang Biying, another participant in the show, also underwent a transition from practicing martial arts to acting.
