At our schools, martial arts is primarily about personal character development instead of just kicking and punching. That is what I emphasized during the training. I think parents as well as teens will gain some real value by watching this episode.
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) June 11, 2008
MADE, the extremely popular MTV show, has selected an episode filmed in Wisconsin for its 100th episode.
In this show, Master Chan Lee coaches a small-town Wisconsin teenager who is on mission to be "MADE" into a martial artist. The premier airing of this episode is scheduled for June 14th at 1:00PM Central Time on MTV. A brief trailer for this show can be seen at this web page:
Lee, a martial arts trainer for college athletes and martial arts champions, said "After more than 30 years of martial arts training and coaching, working with this Wisconsin teenager (whose identity is secret until after the initial showing) has been one of my most rewarding experiences. I'm excited to see how the episode turns out after more than 100 hours of filming.
During past seasons, each episode of MADE followed one willing candidate as they embarked on a mission to transform their life. Whether it was becoming a varsity football player, the homecoming queen or a cheerleader, each teenager dreamed of breaking out of their shell and finding out what they were really made of and what they could achieve when given the tools and training. This is the first episode of MADE where the candidate wanted to be transformed into a hardcore martial arts fighter.
Master Lee was selected as the celebrity coach of this episode following a selective interview process by MTV and was required to be away for most of the six weeks of filming from JK Lee Black Belt Academy, Lee's five martial arts schools in the metro Milwaukee area. Lee said "At our schools, martial arts is primarily about personal character development instead of just kicking and punching. That is what I emphasized during the training. I think parents as well as teens will gain some real value by watching this episode."
