Risei Imai from Nara, Japan, has devoted his entire adult life to training that will make him look like an idol — the famous fighter and actor Bruce Lee. At the age of 8, he achieved such a result that surprised the producers of famous talk shows, however, there was a hitch. Risei reacted coolly to filming on television and now his fans are wondering if a new star will grow up?
Risei first saw films with Bruce Lee at the age of four, his father recalls. The boy was so fascinated by the game of movements in the frame that a year later he learned to own nunchucks, just like his idol. Further — more and today Risei devotes every day to training. He wakes up at 6 a.m., does physical education for an hour and a half, then goes to school, and runs cross-country on his return. And at least 2 more hours of practicing strokes. Iron self-discipline.
The physique and physical skills of the Risei are surprising — for an 8-year-old, he is unusually developed. But what is all this for? Instagram Facebook has 300,000 followers and tens of thousands of followers, but there is a caveat: all accounts, including the YouTube channel, are run by his dad. Rizei himself, although he performed on the TV show «Superkids», did not show any further desire to appear on stage. He is disgusted by attention and loud fame, the boy wants to engage in self-improvement.
Today, Rizei can reproduce in detail the famous scene from the 1972 film «The Game of Death». But does he play with his peers, critics ask? What else, besides sports and school, is there in the life of an 8-year-old child? And isn’t this the case when dad steals childhood from a child who does not want to be famous and respected out of selfish interests?
