The 1970s were the heyday of the Eastern genre. Stuntmen were in demand, but were treated more as props than stars on film sets. Jackie Chan wanted to change that and founded the “Sing Ga Ban” (成家班), his own stunt team, with a few friends and colleagues in 1976. The Sing Ga Ban, which translates as family class, from then on advocated better working conditions for stuntmen and got himself and his team more work in films.

This team, also known as the “Jackie Chan Family”, still exists today. Only here you can find the current list of all members and interesting background information, self-researched from various official sources.

About this list

The Jackie Chan stunt team has changed a lot since its inception in 1976: Members joined, others left, again some died too soon and some members were forgotten for various reasons. This list is updated every time the group changes.

The fact that some photos are missing is because some stuntmen only appeared as doubles or behind the camera, especially in the 8th and 9th generation, and therefore cannot be identified in the films. Many of the middle generation (6th to 8th) are on Chinese and Western social platforms, but to protect their privacy, I will not use the profile photos they upload there for my list.

Here, you will only find screenshots as small quotes from films, TV series or promo shootings in which the respective persons have participated. For others, I was kindly given permission to share certain photos upon request.

Several sources

The order presented here is based on the current order that can be admired in Jackie Chan’s autobiography “I Am Jackie Chan” (我是成龙), which was first published in Chinese on 21 September 2022.

Since I have updated this list again and again over the past years, using various official sources, I also leave these in the individual person entries. In this way, changes from source to source can also be recognised and checked.

A first official list with fixed numbers was previously available in the original edition (and only there!) of Jackie Chan’s autobiography “Growing Old Before Growing Up” (还没长大就老了) from 2015. The list in Jackie Chan’s museum, the Jackie Chan Film Gallery in Shanghai, which has since been closed since 15 July 2020, can also be traced.

All information comes from publicly available sources, so no private secrets are revealed. As I use many sources, your own research may differ from my findings. Although I have taken great care and checked much of the information several times against official data, errors can always creep in.

If you stumble across an error or two, please write to me via my contact form and I will deal with the matter.

Anniversary: 40 years of Jackie Chan Stunt Team

The so-called “Collection Book” was produced for the 40th anniversary of the JCST. Exclusively for members of the Sing Ga Ban and not freely available! This book is a wonderful edition with numerous pictures, texts and cross-references to films in which the legendary troupe has participated over the decades.

40 Years Jackie Chan Stunt Team Collection Book. Thank you, Anthony Carpio!

In 2023, I had the privilege of exchanging ideas with Anthony Carpio from the 3rd generation of the Jackie Chan stunt team. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again, Anthony!

The Collection Book is one of the most beautiful pieces in my private collection, which is linked to a very personal story, and I thought long and hard about quoting from it for my article. In the end, however, I decided against it out of respect for the team and the exclusive book project.

After all, the information it contains is not publicly accessible. It is a pity, however, because the list of members (as of 2017) contains people in a different order that does not appear in any other list. For example, Frankie Chan Fan-Kei (陳勳奇), who finally officially made it onto the team in 2022 in the autobiography, is missing here again. Why this and other information did not make it into Jackie’s autobiography from 2022 remains a mystery for the time being, but also shows that the JC GROUP still does not have an exact overview of the Jackie Chan stunt team.

That’s why I endeavour to bring as much clarity as possible to this perceived information chaos. So if, as mentioned above, you stumble across information that you can’t understand, rest assured that I have also cross-checked it with this non-public source.

You can get a little insight into the book on the designers’ official Behance account:

Brief history of the Sing Ga Ban (成家班)

Jackie Chan’s stunt team has had a variety of names and spellings over the decades. It was founded in 1976 as 成家班 (Sing Ga Ban), which means family class. Jackie’s endeavour at that time was to gather a group of like-minded people. This created a camaraderie, almost a family spirit which is why the colloquial term “Jackie Chan Family” has become established to this day.

In the 1980s, when Jackie’s films enjoyed greater commercial success thanks to Golden Harvest, logos were designed, team shirts printed and trucks wrapped. Common names at the time were Jackie Chan Stunt Team, JC Stunt Team, Jackie Chan Stuntman’s Club, Jackie Chan’s Stuntmen Club, Jackie Chan Stuntmen Association (sometimes with HK for Hong Kong as a suffix) and any number of variations thereof.

During the strenuous filming of “Armour of God II – Operation Condor” (1991), it was announced that the team was disbanding. There were many reasons for this, but the team reunited a few months later with a new structure. And from 2010, the team name was changed to “成龙国际特技队”, Jackie Chan’s International Stunt Team. For the sake of simplicity, I will abbreviate the Jackie Chan Stunt Team as JCST in the following article. This is an unofficial spelling that is becoming more and more popular internationally.

Note on the logos: In a future update, I will discuss the visual development of the JCST based on its logos. This is actually worth an article in its own right. The logos placed here in the generations are not necessarily associated with the introduction of the respective generation. Over the years and decades, old logos and countless variants of them have been used again and again. The illustration is only intended to show a rough visual chronological sequence.

Big Brother, Jackie Chan

Jackie Chan (成龍) ♂

Flagge Hongkong Date/place of birth: 7 April 1954 in Hongkong

Jackie Chan is not named as the first member here – as in most official compilations – because he is the founder and therefore the big brother of the troupe. Here, “big brother” does not refer to a family relationship, but is a title of respect.

Picture: ”Shaolin Wooden Men” (1976)

Jackie’s career as a martial arts director and stunt coordinator began early. Back in the early 1970s, when he got his first film deal thanks to Chu Mu at the Great Earth Film Company, he worked with Charlie Chin and Yuen Qiu on “The Heroine” and even before that with Michael Chan and Bolo Yeung on “Chinese Hercules”, both of which were released in spring 1973. Jackie was just 18 years old at the time of the shooting.

It would take a few more years and films before the youngster had gained so much experience that, according to legend, he decided to go talent scouting on the set of “Shaolin Wooden Men” (1976) in Taiwan and improve the underpaid situation of stuntmen in Hong Kong with like-minded people.

From the very beginning, Jackie’s aim was to hire disciplined and honest people who would put their talent and hard work at the service of the film and grow as a group. To this day, these are the stable cornerstones of the Jackie Chan stunt team.

The 1st generation

1976-1981

Legend has it that during the filming of Jackie’s second film for Lo Wei, “Shaolin Wooden Men” (1976), the formation of the JCST took place. In Jackie’s autobiography, the updated 2017 Oscar edition, only three members are attributed to the first generation. The list has since been adjusted.

Incidentally, Jackie Chan was only mentioned as the first founding member in his museum, the Jackie Chan Film Gallery; after that, however, he cleared the field as Big Brother and the list starts at number one without him. Of course, Jackie Chan was and still is the head of the troupe.

The 2nd generation

1982-1986

The second generation of JCST underwent some of the biggest changes in the Hong Kong film industry. The typical Easterns that had been popular for decades and set in the Qing Dynasty were given a makeover and moved into the modern era. This also affected the fight choreography and stunt work, which became increasingly dangerous in the 1980s.

And yet the pioneers of the first generation were able to keep up because of their respective backgrounds. At the same time, big brother Jackie Chan pulled on the reins. After the first film successes at the end of the 1970s, Sing Ga Ban was already a respected, up-and-coming troupe. As the book “Bruce Lee & Jacky Chan: Oriental Heroes” (Great Dragon Company, 1980) states, Jackie had to rap the knuckles of some of his stuntmen at the time and actually fire them, who wanted to sneak into other film productions thanks to his good name by claiming that their boss was working with them eventually.

The 3rd generation

1987-1991

The third generation once again brought to the screen some faces that Hong Kong film fans still recognise today. Ken Lo was quickly chosen as Jackie’s personal bodyguard thanks to his past as a professional martial artist and bouncer. It is interesting that no mention is made of William Duen Wai-Lun (段偉倫).

From 1988 to 2003, William Duen was Jackie’s bodyguard as well as his personal driver, but he is said to have been too harsh in criticising his boss and the practices of his wife and business partner Joan Lin Feng-Chiao, so he had to leave. William Duen often had smaller roles in Jackie’s films; why he is not listed as a stuntman is discussed in more detail at the end of the article.

Around 2009, after the restructuring of the JC Group, Ken Lo and Jackie Chan parted ways rather unpleasantly – little was commented on by Ken Lo. Nevertheless, they continued to work together, for example in “Chinese Zodiac” (2012), “Who Am I 2015” (2015) and most recently more or less in “All U Need Is Love” (2021).

In rare making-of footage, you can see several people wearing the famous white JCST shirts on set. Jackie’s stuntmen were often hired out to third parties and also pursued their own careers. Also a member of the Hong Kong Stuntman Association (香港動作特技演員公會).

The 4th generation

1992-1996

Yes, even Stanley Tong is part of the Jackie Chan stunt team, and a very important one indeed, for it was Stanley Tong who insisted on finally introducing sound film for Hong Kong actioners in 1991. Fact: As a rule, Hong Kong action films were mostly shot without original sound and only later dubbed by different voice actors in the studio!

So in 1992 there was a real technical revolution with “Police Story III – Super Cop”, which was supplemented with a linguistic revolution in 1994. In order to be more internationally marketable, “Rumble In The Bronx” (1995), the next Chan/Tong vehicle, was shot for the most part in English. To this day, Stanley Tong is an enormously important member of the JCST and one of Jackie Chan’s favourite directors, with whom he collaborates from time to time.

Stanley Tong originally wanted to study medicine, but then decided to study engineering in Winnipeg (Canada) and returned to Hong Kong in 1979 to gain a foothold in the film business with the help of his brother-in-law. This brother-in-law was none other than Lo Lieh (羅烈), who took Stanley Tong’s sister Tang Jia-Li (湯加麗) as his second wife.

Strangely, there are very few films in his filmography and none by/with Jackie Chan. Wang Tong-Chuan joined the team at a time when it was actually disbanded and re-established months later under a new structure. Perhaps this led to a change in thinking, so that he changed his name and still lives as a freelance artist in Beijing (China). In 2023, he was one of the instructors for the first Jackie Chan Stunt Camp in Beijing.

The 5th generation

1997-2001

Stanley Tong and Jackie Chan’s plan to become more internationally recognised and respected in film had worked. It was time for the JCST to become more international in the next generation as well. Bradley James Allan and Paul Andreovski were the first non-Asians to join the team.

The two Australians joined on location during filming of “Mr. Nice Guy” (1997) and quickly became important key figures in Jackie’s stuntman chess. Another novelty was provided by the first stuntwoman in the team: Yu Hao Er (于浩儿), also known as Angel Yu.

Brad Allan, a former wushu champion, was the team’s first Western stuntman and befriended Andy Cheng during the filming of “Mr. Nice Guy” (1997) in his native Australia. Their friendship was to last until Brad Allan’s tragic death. Like Andy Cheng, Brad Allan was strongly influenced by Jackie Chan and his spirit, so that he too was able to boast a successful filmography in Hollywood as an action and stunt director.

Marvel honoured him for his life and work with “in loving memory of Brad Allan” in the film “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” (2021).

Unfortunately, little is known about Angel Yu, except that she was the very first woman of the Jackie Chan stunt team.

The 6th generation

2002-2006

This probably represents the smallest generation of the JCST with just four new members. It was a difficult time for Jackie Chan and his stunt team, as the balancing act between Hollywood and Hong Kong productions became increasingly difficult.

Although many films with Jackie Chan and several generations of the JCST were made during this time, the market in Hong Kong was slackening more and more. This led to Jackie Chan having to join the much larger Chinese market.

2007-2011

In the seventh generation, Jackie Chan finally arrived in his new adopted country of China (Beijing and Shanghai), both commercially and emotionally, after the separation of his best friend and manager Willie Chan and the restructuring of the JC Group. Thus, with this generation, he not only consolidated his “regional factor” and engaged young talents from the People’s Republic, but also reached out to Europe for the first time.

With Max Huang and Andy Long, the first two European, German, stuntmen were welcomed to the team. Furthermore, Taekwondo champion and model Zoe Zhang as well as Wang Dan were brought in as additional stunt women for stunt work and their own film vehicles.

The 9th generation

2017-2021

The last generation of the JCST for now will also be international with some firsts. Why members like Lee Huang and Marvin Bouvet are placed so far down the list according to the latest source, Jackie’s 2022 autobiography “I Am Jackie Chan” (我是成龙), even though they have been doing projects for and with their boss for quite some time, remains to be unknown for now.

However, this generation suffered big problems and still does when very young talents were recruited from China from 2019 and got no or few opportunities to succeed so far because of the global crises. The Long Yun Kung Fu Troupe (龙韵武艺团), now fully integrated into the Sing Ga Ban, has also had its difficulties travelling internationally. Many of their European stage shows, including in Germany, had to be cancelled at short notice.

2024: Start of the 10th generation?

All but the very first generation of the Jackie Chan stunt team span a period of four years. Therefore, it is theoretically possible that preparations and recruitments for the anniversary generation are already underway, because according to the calculations, this would have to have started in 2022 and last until 2026. As described above, these events may be protracted due to the ongoing global crises.

In fact, a collaboration between Jackie Chan and the traditional brewery Luzhou Laojiao (泸州老窖) was made public on 22 January 2024. In the Year of the Dragon 2024, Jackie Chan has been chosen as the official advertising ambassador of the 700-year-old Chinese company. A lavish promotional video was produced to celebrate. In it, a 10th generation of the Jackie Chan stunt team is mentioned for the first time.

It should also be mentioned that in the past many dates were officially adjusted by the JC Group again and again: New members that were once forgotten were added, year dates were adjusted, the order of the individual members was changed. And indeed, the most recent source, Jackie’s autobiography “I Am Jackie Chan” (我是成龙) from 2022, on which this list is based, contains many small errors and one major blunder with a double entry.

So I personally expect that we will continue to get more data on the JCST in the future and perhaps a few of the errors printed in the book will be corrected for international editions.

On 7 April 2024, Jackie Chan turned 70 years old. Strangely enough, he celebrated his birthday in private; he was in the middle of filming “Whispers Of Gratitude” (陌生家庭). However, his stunt team did not miss the opportunity to send him congratulations via video. The compilation was shared on the official Douyin account of the JCST International Training Center. Towards the end we see new faces, perhaps contenders for the 10th generation?

A final note: As mentioned several times, not all data was taken from this last autobiography. My list is the result of countless hours of research from many sources (public and non-public) in order to present a collection of data for the JCST that is as error-free as possible.

Wasn’t there …?

Over the course of decades, Jackie Chan did not only work with his own people, of course. As early as the 1980s, Jackie’s team met Sammo Hung’s, Lau Kar-Leung’s or the Yuen clan for some successful films that are now classics of Hong Kong cinema. Thus, stuntmen were sometimes lent out for certain tasks, even to third parties.

In the 90s and especially after the breakthrough in Hollywood, the JCST worked more and more with “outsiders” or martial artists who had already earned a name for themselves as stuntmen. Project-wise, there was a collaboration with the Sing Ga Ban, but it takes more to be considered an official member. Incidentally, the Collection Book mentioned at the beginning contains a lavish list of films in the form of posters in which the JCST has been involved since the 1970s – I will compare this list with mine and write a separate post about it at some point.

It should also be mentioned that over the years, thousands of applicants unfortunately did not make it into the team. This in turn means that this list represents the ultimate members within the “Jackie Chan Family”. In Jackie’s autobiography “I Am Jackie Chan” (我是成龙) from 2022, he writes exactly that and thanks all the applicants who even after that continued to pursue their careers and occasionally crossed paths with the JCST.

Here are just a few of the names that are often mentioned in connection with the JCST.

Jonathan Foo, aka Jon Foo, was cast by Jackie Chan for his production of “House Of Fury” (2005) and “The Myth” (2005), but is not considered a permanent member. In 2016, he landed the lead role as Jonathan Lee in the cancelled TV series “Rush Hour”, based on Chan and Tucker’s film series.

For that, here‘s my mega-review: “Mega review of the “Rush Hour” television series with Jonathan Foo and Justin Hires”!

Tomer Oz, the Israeli martial artist, opened his own martial arts school in China and was hired by Jackie Chan for some of his films, including “Dragon Blade” (2015), “Skiptrace” (2016) and “Vanguard” (2020).

William Duen Wai-Lun (段偉倫), was Jackie Chan’s bodyguard alongside Ken Lo for many years, as well as his personal driver.

Rumour has it that he and his boss had such a falling out that he was dishonourably dismissed from the team. In any case, he is not mentioned in the official Sing Ga Ban lists, even though he proved his talent in front of the camera on several occasions.

Joe Eigo, the Canadian martial artist and stuntman, often trained with the members of the fifth generation, but he was never officially accepted.

Tai Bo (太保), a well-known face of Hong Kong cinema in the 80s and 90s, has always been treated as a permanent member of the Jackie Chan Stunt Team. Some sources list him as part of the first generation, but he could also be counted as a member of the second in terms of time. However, he is not officially mentioned anywhere, although he was even present at the anniversary celebrations in 2017 and receives great respect from his colleagues.

Tai Bo is considered a character actor and Jackie certainly offered him a permanent place in the team. But I personally think he wanted to be freer in his choice of films and roles.

I could list dozens more talents at this point, but we’ll end with these brief mentions who worked and occasionally still work with Jackie Chan and his stunt team, but are not part of the official team: Paul Philip Clark, Pierre Bourdaud, Mathieu Jaquet, Brahim Chab, Mak Wai-Cheung, Cheng Chi-Ho, Michael Tse Tin-Wah, Andy Kay, Colin Flora, Andy Owen, Dani Hu, Jack Wong Wai-Leung, Peng Zhang, Russ Price, Ulrik Bruchholz, David Torok, Rima Zeidan, Alicia Woodhouse, Alexey Minaev, Allan Keng, Kwan Yung, Alex Yip Choi-Nam, Jung Jin “J.J.” Park.

The fact that these talents are not part of the JCST in no way diminishes their talent and passion for what they do and, more importantly, do it successfully. Whether they are official applicants or occasional contributors, each and every name holds a fascinating filmography that deserves all the respect it can get.


A huge thank you to the Jackie Chan Stunt Team and all the members (former and active) who always answer all my nerdy questions about Sing Ga Ban and beyond in a friendly and courteous manner. I hope to be able to report more about you stunt heroes and stunt heroines in the future.
