(Born Li Lianjie) One of the greatest martial arts action movie stars of our time, he had won multiple Wushu competitions and spent some time as a Shaolin monk before debuting on the big screen in 1982's The Shaolin Temple. Here's a compilation of my favorite Jet Li fight scenes where he incorporates his signature Northern Wushu, particularly Fanziquan.

List of movies featured in order of appearance: 
1. Unleashed (Danny the Dog)
2. Hero
3. Fist of Legend
4. Once Upon a Time in China 2
5. Kiss of the Dragon
6. Fearless (Huo Yuanjia)
7. The Forbidden Kingdom

Despite not including them I have to mention some other films that didn't make the cut for this compilation like The Shaolin Temple (of course), Tai Chi Master (shown briefly at end), Born To Defense, Once Upon a Time in China 1 (ladder fight especially), to some extent the Once Upon a Time in China series, Swordsman 2, Fong Sai-Yuk 1 & 2, Kung Fu Cult Master, Last Hero in China, The Bodyguard from Beijing (The Defender), Black Mask, Lethal Weapon 4, Romeo Must Die, The One, Cradle 2 the Grave, Warlords, War, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (underwhelming but kinda cool to see him in it), The Expendables series, and Flying Swords of Dragon Gate.
