Lin Qiunan vs Ryusei Imai
Lin Qiunan focus is being a Taekwondo and Kung Fu master, whereas Ryusei Imai concentrates on Jeet Kune Do, a hybrid philosophy of martial arts created by Bruce Lee. All of these techniques can cause serious damage to an opponent, but what would happen if these two youngsters were to come face to face in a standoff? Which technique would be the superior one, and which would win?
That’s what we’re going to look at in this article.
Qiunan was born in May 2004, in Ningbo, China. Qiunan is an actor and singer, as well as a Taekwondo and Kung Fu master. From a very young age, he trained in Kung Fu and Taekwondo with his father, who was his mentor and a massive influence. He was not only a martial arts performer but also dubbed a karting genius after he delivered an incredible performance at the 2012 karting World Championship at the age of 8. This was to bring him to the attention of the media and, after appearing in several satellite tv shows, he was signed up by Ed Star Pictures Starlight Culture Media.
In 2016 he landed his first movie role in Kung Fu Boys. This was the film to expose Qiunan’s martial arts talent to the world. He continued his movie career appearing in Big Brother in 2018, and Enter the Fat Dragon in 2020, a remake of Enter the Dragon starring Bruce Lee. All of his movies highlighted his amazing athletic talent for Kung Fu and Taekwondo. Qiunan stands at 140 centimeters in height and is known to have one of the highest kicks in Taekwondo.
In the World Taekwondo Poomsae Championships, Qiunan achieved a gold medal in his performance against Jake Evan de Guzman in the men’s freestyle individual under 17 category. In Qiunan’s performances, there is great smoothness to his acrobatic moves. He is fast and yet elegant, being able to spin several times in mid-air before making a perfect landing. His feet have enough power to fend off more than one opponent at a time. He is a born gymnast and a perfectionist in his art. A boy of many talents, Qiunan has a very bright future ahead of him.
The world’s strongest kid, this eight-year-old martial artist is also known as the Bruce Lee Kid.
Ryusei was born in 2010 in Nara, Japan. At the age of 1, he began to watch Bruce Lee movies, and by the age of 4, he was imitating scenes from these movies. Within one year he had already mastered the Nunchaku scene from Game of Death, so it goes without saying that his idol is Lee, and the young boy’s passion is to be the same as his.
Initially, he used to train in his home, and later, at the age of 5, he started his official training of Jeet Kune Do, a hybrid philosophy of martial arts created by Bruce Lee, which in Lee’s words is simply the direct expression of one’s feelings, with a minimum of movements and energy.
Despite his young age, he gets up at six in the morning and trains for an hour and a half every morning before going to school. When he returns, he runs for another hour and then spends another two hours working on his kicks in nunchaku routines, not forgetting the one-finger press-ups and one-handed push-ups on his knuckles.
Ryusei has first introduced to the world three years ago when a video of him imitating his hero went viral. He soon became one of the most wanted faces around the world. In 2016, he was invited to the international show Little Big Shot where he showcased his action stunt by Bruce Lee.
Again, in 2017 he was invited to the show where he was asked what superpower he would like to have, for which he answered having some power like his idol Bruce Lee.
He is also the brand ambassador of One Championship. He was welcomed to the Singapore-based martial arts organization by flyweight mixed martial artist Demetrius Mighty Mouse Johnson of the United States. Not only does Ryusai imitate the movies of Lee, but he also imitates his physique, with a six-pack that you wouldn’t expect to see on a young boy of 3 foot 4 inches tall and weighing only 31 kilograms.
Over the years of Ryusei Imai’s martial arts career, he has amassed great fortunes with massive earnings. As of 2020, his estimated net worth of Imai is over 5 million dollars, which is mostly derived from his social media career. Having already become a national treasure in his home country, and amassing a massive social media following, the wonder kid is tipped to become the next Japanese star to hit the global screens.
Lin Qiunan vs Ryusei Imai
There is no doubt that both of these youngsters deserve the recognition that they have achieved, and are extremely talented, with great discipline in their martial art. They also both hold a great deal of passion for their art.
I think it’s safe to say that they both seem to admire the late great Bruce Lee, with Ryusei going that extra mile of imitating his hero’s exact moves. But which one of these talented boys would win in a fight? Well, this is a difficult one as we have to take into account the huge difference in height and age. But without these differences, it would be a really close call.
On the one hand, Lin Qiunan has proved himself by achieving a Gold in the World Taekwondo Championships, but given time Ryusei could also achieve a Gold medal in his chosen martial art.
Qiunan has been able to show off his talent to a much wider audience through the big screen, but Ryusei is well on the way to doing that, as he is very talented when it comes to imitating Bruce Lee.
When it comes to their chosen martial art, there is very little difference as they both practice pretty much the same moves. They also both have a tremendous amount of speed and physical agility and are blessed in their field of gymnastics.
I think it’s safe to say this really is an even playing field, apart from the difference in height and age, which must see Qiunan take this one for now.
Ask again in five years’ time and the answer might be very different.
