Ma Yun (马云), known professionally as Jack Ma, is the Chinese billionaire who is the founderof Alibaba Group, a conglomerate of Internet-based businesses. Starting as an English teacher, he’s now not only one of world’s richest men and a well-known philanthropist and philosopher of business, he also sings, dances, and does Kung Fu.
Ma has been studying Chen-style Tai Chi Chuan for many years. In fact, he hopes one day to be remembered as a Tai Chi master, rather than solely as the founder of China’s largest internet company. Now he will be appearing in a short Kung Fu movie called Gong Shou Dao – or the art of guard and defense along with Jet Li, Donnie Yen, Jing Wu, and Sammo Hung.
