Han Kong-sang, famously known to us as Jackie Chan, is the world-renowned martial arts icon. Chan was born on April 7, 1954, in Hong Kong to Charles and Lee-lee Chan.
He was born Chan Kong-sang, which means “Born in Hong Kong” Chan. His mother had a nickname for him, “Pao Pao” (cannonball) due to the way he would roll around as a baby.
In 1960, Chan’s father was sent to Australia to work for the American Embassy. Around this time Chan was sent to the Chinese Opera Research Institute in Hong Kong to be trained in music, dance and traditional martial arts.
