For his role as Dre in the remake of “The Karate Kid”, actor Jaden Smith,11, spent several months training in the art of Kung Fu. Jaden first trained for three months in Los Angeles and later spent four months training in Beijing, where the film was shot.

Jaden himself admits that Kung Fu is a lot of work: “[It] helps me with stunts and stuff like that. It’s great, and it’s fun — but it’s very hard work.”

Veteran actor Jackie Chan, who acts alongside Jaden in the film, says Jaden’s dedication to martial arts puts his own son to shame.

“He put my son to shame! I provided my son with the best martial artists in the world, and he could not be persuaded to try it. In just two months, Jaden had learned so much. He is truly a talented boy.”

Recently at the 2010 Kids Choice Awards in Los Angeles, viewers were able to see Jaden Smith in action. Click here if you missed all the action!

  2. CONGRATS TO JADEN! WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THE MOVIE. MY SON IS A

    KUNG FU ENTHUSIAST AND MY HUSBAND HAS A BLACK BELT ALREADY.

    HOWEVER JACKIE CHAN I HOPE YOU ARE READING THIS….PLEASE DON’T BE

    SO HARD ON YOUR OWN SON JUST BECAUSE HE FAILS TO PLEASE YOU IN HIS

    OWN MARTIAL ART PURSUITS. IT IS HIS OWN LIFE AND SAYING THINGS

    LIKE JADEN HAS PUT HIM TO SHAME IS TOO HURTFUL. ASIAN FAMILIES ARE

    NOTORIOUSLY CRITICAL OF THEIR CHILDREN & GRANDCHILDREN IF THEY NON-

    CONFORM. I KNOW. MY CHILDREN ARE HALF CHINESE AND HALF BLACK AND

    IN PARTICULAR MY SON IS ALWAYS MALIGNED AND MIS-UNDERSTOOD FOR HIS

    THINkING PATTERN AS THEY DIFFER FROM HIS COUSINS. MY SON IS

    EXTREMELY BRIGHT IE. HONOR ROLL BUT HE IS A DREAMER AND COMES

    ACROSS TO ONLY TO THEM AS STRANGE. HE AND I HAVE BEEN DEEPLY HURT

    BY THE REJECTION OF HIS RELATIVES. EVERYBODY ELSE THINKS HE IS ONE

    OF THE MOST IMAGINATIVE, ATHLECTIC AND HANDSOME CHILDREN. JACKIE

    APPRECIATE YOUR SON’S OWN UNIQUE GIFTS AND ENCOURAGE THOSE AND WATCH

    HIM SOAR!

  3. In that picture of Jaden with his dad Will, is the back of Jaden’s hair shaved off? Hid braids look like they stop half way up the back of his head and then hang down covering the shaved part.
    Am I just seeing things?

  4. I want to see this move.it looks good.he’s a good actor.he sis real good in pursuit of happiness.
