Sounds so dangerous, you’re so brave. Have you had many other accidents since starting?
I try not to expect an accident, because I do think you get what you expect in life but yes – I definitely whack myself on the head with my bo staff almost every day.
I did have quite an injury a few years back when I was practising a gymnastics move that requires you to spin on your hand. I collapsed, putting my whole body weight on my hand and bent a few fingers back, nearly fracturing two of them. I would say that is the worst accident I’ve had training, that and I also recently did a job in Ghana with Sony where I was using a machete and I cut myself… but it wasn’t too bad!

Your parents must be livid – proud but terrified every day. Would you describe yourself as an adrenaline junkie?
That’s a good question – and when I think about it, it’s not so much adrenaline I chase, it’s life. It’s so complex beyond our comprehension, there are so many experiences out there to be had, I feel if I’m not grabbing them, then I’m wasting the opportunity.
