Just as his film "The Martial Arts Kid" was wrapping during the last weekend of June, Executive Producer Dr. Robert Goldman received an honor for his work on it.
Dr. Goldman received an award from Th nner, which is held in Split Rock Resort in Lake Harmony, Pennsylvania every year.
The award cited Dr. Goldman as the Legends of the Martial Arts Hall Of Fame's "2014 International Goodwill Martial Arts Ambassador" in appreciation of his "many years of dedication, contributions and service to the martial arts" the past year with the making and filming of "The Martial Arts Kid", which is felt by many to put martial arts in a positive light.
Led by co-headliners Cynthia Rothrock and Don "The Dragon" Wilson, the film features what some are saying is a cast with the most legitimate martial artists seen in a film in decades.
Martial artists in the cast include: Don Wilson, Rothrock, Bill "Superfoot" Wallace, James Wilson, TJ Storm, Matthew Ziff, JJ "Golden Dragon" McParland, Nassim "Young Dragon" Lahrizi, Tara Cardinal, Inga Van Ardenn, Hamid Lahrizi, Cheryl Wheeler-Duncan, Christine Bannon-Rodrigues, Carl Van Meter, Olando Rivera, Gerry Blanck, Jeff Smith, Alan Goldberg and Eric Kovaleski.
Kovaleski is a 7th Dan in Tang Soo Do and the President of the Legends Of The Martial Arts Hall Of Fame.
James Wilson and Wheeler-Duncan are also producers on the film.
"The Martial Arts Kid" is scheduled to hit theaters in 2015.
