10 Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About Jackie Chan

He Has His Own Stuntman Association

Jackie Chan has had to work with several stuntmen during his career and he relies on their professionalism for his own safety. In order to ensure that he works with only the best stuntmen around, he built his own stuntman association called ‘Sing Kar Pan’.

Near-Death Stunt

Jackie Chan always insisted on doing his own stunts, no matter how dangerous or absurd. Unfortunately, one of the lesser dangerous stunts he undertook nearly claimed his life. In 1986, when Jackie was in Yugoslavia, he was supposed to leap from a wall to a near-by tree. He did not make the jump cleanly though and ended up falling from a great height. He fractured his skull quite severely, but somehow managed to escape the fatal incident.
