Cynthia Rothrock and Don 'The Dragon' Wilson were both there, in part, to promote their new films The Martial Arts Kid, the trailer premiere of which we got to see at the event, and White Tiger. The trailers are below. The Martial Arts Kid was produced by James Wilson, Don's brother and in association with the fantastic anti-bullying charity We're Kickin' It!

Through this event I met some wonderful, creative people and I would urge you to check out the following:

The Urban Action Showcase Expo weekend here in New York was not just a story of rubbing shoulders with my favourite action icons or supporting an incredible, worthwhile and awesome event, it was also a story of meeting and making new friends. It will be this, as much as anything, that sticks out in my mind about this wonderful event.
