THE AV INTERVIEW: BRAHIM ACHABBAKHE (BOYKA: UNDISPUTED 4, MAN OF TAI CHI)
ANDERSONVISION: How did you become involved in Boyka?
BRAHIM ACHABBAKHE: I became involve in Boyka Undisputed 4 thanks to the fight coordinator Tim Man who thought I would fit the part of Igor Kazimir. They needed an actor who could come already in shape and get the action done without using a stunt double.
AV: What was it like working with Master Woo Ping?
AV: I saw some of those kicks from back in the Man of Tai Chi period. How do you stretch like that?
BRAHIM: Stretching and kicking is like anything in life, the more you do it the better you become. I always had a reputation for having very good kicking techniques so you can say that kicking is my trademark. Stretching is something you do on a daily basis very gently. The reason I say to do it gently is people have a misconception of stretching saying if it does not hurt you are not working hard enough. It is wrong cause you can really hurt yourself by over stretching and it’s important to know your limits. So i would say you need to stretch according to what your body tells you. Regular practice is the key.
AV: What are you working on next?
AV: What kind of films would you like to tackle? Not everyone aspires to be in a Marvel movie. Where do you think you would fit?
