Sammo Shames Donnie Yen Into Not Retiring?

Good news! Donnie Yen has been planning his retirement recently but Twitch reported today that he's changed his mind. That his body is wearing down as he gets older, and that he feels less inclined to get bruised and battered about at the end of each film he shoots but that his passion for filmmaking always returns soon after so he's not going to stop anytime soon.

Could seeing Sammo still going strong at nearly 58 (recent heart attack aside) have made him realize that he's still got a lot of ass kicking left in the tank?

That's very, very inspirational. Think of all the part-time martial artists who moan and complain. Will be mentioning this story to the students at our Kung Fu School here.
