Today is homage Fridays and I will introduce you to the West Coast Action Team (WCAT). Founded by world known martial artist, actor, and stuntman, Ernie Reyes Sr. Surf Ninjas, The Last Dragon, etc.). Their mission is to touch the hearts of people from all over the world with their martial arts performances. They are demonstrate the various martial arts styles in their performance (Like the first ong bak) ranging from weapons, high flying kicks, and self defense sequences.
WCAT has produced some extraordinary martial artist in the progress. Many of them have made it to the big screen, commercials, and were some of the forefathers of the tricking community (shoutouts to Loopkicks). The video below is his son, Ernie Reyes Jr who was introduced as the little kid in The Last Dragon, Keno from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.
Now because they do martial arts performance, Don’t think that is the only thing they can do. Ernie Reyes does make sure his students are well grounded in their self defense much as their performances. Performances are the recreational part of martial arts. these guys there express themselves and have inspired me back in the day. Osu!
