GLENN COXON, MARTIAL ARTS MASTER: I've been practising martial arts now for five decades. I have black belts in a number of different styles. It's such a big part of my life.

COMMENTATOR (2005): Just look at the man in action, the double-handed chopping action. He needs to break 315 to get the record. A black belt in over four disciplines. One last effort - three, two, one. The time's up. That's it. The most pine boards broken in one minute.

GLENN COXON: My current record stands at 359 boards. I was planning to have another crack at the world record for November last year, 2014. Then unfortunately, August, I was diagnosed with cancer. It was what's called stage four cancer. Stage four cancer is pretty much (makes hand movement of knife slitting throat) it's just about over.

Martial Arts Practitioner Trung Ly was part of a non-profit organisation Dong Tam Association for over 20 years helping and teaching young Vietnamese Australians their the culture and the martial arts ways in which honor, respect and righteousness is the essence of the culture. He transformed the Dong Tam Lion Dance school into one of the largest Vietnamese Lion Dance groups in the south west region of Sydney. He is the founder of Dong Thanh Alliance Martial Arts centre based in Chipping Norton N.S.W. The school has been described as "A catalyst for cultural diversity that brings traditional development and modern techniques to the table".

Fight Choreographer/ Action Director In 2013 Trung Ly as a fight choreographer team up with Maria Tran and Adrian Castro made a action comedy short called Enter The Dojo, Gaffa and followed by award winning Hit Girls which won 2 Action On Film Festival awards in L.A. Ly went on to make 2 films with director Antony Szeto Fist Of The Dragon and Death Mist as a fight action choreographer and action camera operator.

Ly takes pride in he's action story "To create the story within the action and build the character through non-verbal means, it’s usually done not only for one action sequence, but to help build the character throughout the whole film. So the character’s ‘action continuity’ is very important for me. Devising safe and exciting action requires training in a way that has an assessment andreassessment component that needs to be regularly updated."

One of the unsung heroes of the silver screen, Trung Ly plies his trade working on sets around the world choreographing stunts and fight scenes. While also juggling his commitments as a martial arts instructor at Dong Tam Martial Arts in Sydney’s western suburbs, Ly has spent the past few months working on the set of upcoming Aussie martial arts-themed comedy series Maximum Choppage.

Fresh off the ABC2 show’s final day of filming, he took time to chat to Blitz about his work, his vision and the antics on the set of Australia’s first ever kung fu comedy.
