It seems even the great martial artists can’t defeat aging. Donnie Yen turns 47 today. You read that right, 47. I don’t know how he does it, but his schedule seems to get fuller with each passing day. Happy birthday Donnie Yen and best wishes for your future projects!

    Donnie Yen is lightening fast. Incredible presence on and off screen. I would love to meet him as well; and, get a personally autographed photo with him. We work with many inner city children who really are intrigued with him.
