Liked you in the with him and Dolph Lundgren as well. Would to love to see you in a movie probably most likely as the villain with Steven Seagal, make it a wonderful fight scene in there with you two. Also, would like to see you make your own movie as the main character. Maybe a good Yakuza story. Thank you. God Bless.

You are a great actor, fighter, and a top bloke. Your movies are great I love watching you in action, some of my favorite movies you were in are Ninja Academy, Big Trouble in little china, showdown in little Tokyo. I have seen an instructional video with you in it you are a top notch fighter and a real master of your art, you were great with the brief case and the cane it"s really good to see that you can fight off screen as well as on and that from some interviews I have read that you know your art very well and that your are a great man.
your loyal fan

9/7/2004 10:53:19 AM | Dear Mr. Gerald Okamura, I am trying to find a movie that you were in with Richard Norton & James Lew called “For Life or Death”. Any ideas where I might find this movie?


9/7/2004 10:53:04 AM | You were too cool in Big Trouble in Little China. Do you know anyone that has behind the scenes footage ? I am a big John Carpenter fan, and I was hoping to see this great director at work.

I like your look and I have shaved my head, and have grown a Fu Manchu, so maybe someday I will be able to get acting roles in the movies. I train in Martial Arts daily, and have had some luck doing various stunt roles, but now I wish to crossover and do more acting. Thank you for being an inspiration to me !


9/7/2004 10:48:08 AM | Mr. Okamura:
Aloha. I am a big fan of yous. You are a very talented martial artist. You really inspire me. You see I am 15 and I do Shorin-ryu Karate. I saw you in Blade and Bloodsport 3. Didn"t you also play the master in Kung-Fu (The Movie). You are very talented. I was wondering, is there any way that I could get your autograph?
