As the more astute among you will recall, Black Belt ran a piece in its December 2018/January 2019 issue titled "8 Things You Didn't Know About James Lew" right after he won an Emmy for Outstanding Stunt Coordination in a Drama Series for Netflix's Luke Cage. Within the article, Lew's longtime kung fu buddy and perennial Hollywood bad guy Gerald Okamura chimed in with a little good-natured trash talking. At least, we hope it was good-natured — either way, readers loved it.
Well, the time has come, Okamura informs us, for the "Hard Master" to have his say. Okamura figures that if a whippersnapper like Lew can dazzle Black Belt's readers with eight things they presumably didn't know about him, he can certainly do the same. Actually, Okamura bets there are nine things you didn't know about him. So brace yourselves, gentle readers. The road gets bumpy from here.
