Woke up this morning to shocking news, David Carradine was found dead in his hotel room in Thailand.

In addition to being a compelling actor, Kill Bill films among others, David Carradine did so much more in his 72 years that was intriguing, motivating, and inspirational.

I remember watching the Kung Fu series in the 1970’s on television – I loved it and looked forward to it every week!

What perhaps some don’t know is that David Carradine actually practiced Kung Fu and other martial arts in real life.  He taught martial arts and combined the movements into exercise workouts (on video tape and DVD) which were motivational and effective.

We’ll miss you David.
