Ever since he moved to the United States from Jamaica, Ewart Chin has made a name for himself as both and actor and stunt person in a variety of films.

With the upcoming "The Martial Arts Kid" - which is co-headlined by martial arts/action movie legends Cynthia Rothrock and Don "The Dragon" Wilson - Chin looks to make his mark on the production side of film as well.

Co-producers James Wilson and Cheryl Wheeler-Duncan have tabbed Chin to be an Associate Producer on "The Martial Arts Kid", which is set to start shooting this June.

Chin was born on the island of Jamaica. He started studying Goju-Ryu Japanese Karate at a very early age. Finding the style too rigid and hard, he decided to pursue a softer style and started practicing Hung-Gar Kung Fu with a Master from KwangTung province, China. This Master was a friend of his grandfather, who was also from KuangTung. He found that Hung-Gar was more to his liking and practiced this diligently for the rest of his life, eventually attaining Master status in the art.

Upon moving to the United States, Chin began working in films as an actor and stunt person.

Chin landed roles in the 1993 film "Ring of Fire II: Blood and Steel" and the 1994 picture "Red Sun Rising", both of which were headlined by Don Wilson. In 1996, he landed a role in one of Rothrock's more memorable films, "Sworn To Justice".

Chin has been inducted into the USA Martial Arts Hall Of Fame, and The Martial Arts History Museum.

For about 10 years, Chin has studied Qi-Gong in Los Angeles with a Monk from The Wu Dang Monastery, China.
