LESUNG BERLIN: Taimak - The Last Dragon

You are heartily invited to TAIMAK’s first reading in Germany. Do not miss to meet the “Master” in person….

Taimak reads from his exciting and compelling autobiography TAIMAK - THE LAST DRAGON, a truthful and insightful book about his life and his experiences all along the way from his at times difficult childhood in NYC and Europe to his sudden fame from THE LAST DRAGON the legendary cult classic from the 1980s, to where he is today…

The worldwide recognized martial arts expert was only 19 years old when he starred in THE LAST DRAGON, one of the most unique martial arts movies of all time. The colorful, witty and ironically amusing martial arts comedy, produced by Motown music mogul Barry Gordon celebrated an impressive 30th anniversary revival in the US cinemas and Sony Home Entertainment released a special edition on Blu-Ray last year.
Back then the film not only presented a positive role model in a black character (unusual for a decade notoriously stereotypical of African-American film roles) but it also allowed Taimak to introduce to the world his extraordinary performing skills.

However Taimak hasn't let himself be corrupted by the facade of Hollywood. As all of us he experienced ups and downs, triumphs and heartbreaks, and learned many lessons about self-respect in a difficult business and about what really matters in life…

His recently published book is authentic, entertaining and heartfelt like the man himself, who never gave up on his goals. Until today Taimak is truly a motivating and inspiring person for so many people. “I thought it wouldn’t only be interesting for me to begin to look at my entire life and write it down, but it would help others from many walks of life to take my experiences and learn from them,” he said.

Since THE LAST DRAGON Taimak has appeared in many film&TV roles and theatre plays and worked as choreographer with such notables as Debbie Allen, Jaime King, Madonna on her Drowned World Tour, former rock band Bush as choreographer of their “Chemical Between Us” video and many others. In 2010 he was inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame.
One year earlier Taimak created a wellness program for young people whose mission is to enable all participants to create and see a pathway to moment to moment happiness (http://www.unfoldingdream.org/). Taimak delivers numerous seminars in “at risk” communities around the country and notes, “I am blessed beyond measure to have had the opportunity to do so much and I hope to inspire and entertain some more. I am clear that the best is yet to come”.
