Assassin's Creed & The Tiger Claw Elite Championships

(Excerpt from "Michelle Lin on Assassin's Creed & The Tiger Claw Elite Championships" by Gene Ching for  Kung Fu


Occasionally someone asks, "What’s the point of competing in Kung Fu tournaments?" Well, it might just land you a role in a major Hollywood motion picture.

Michelle Lin is a dedicated Kung Fu practitioner, one of the select pupils of Dr. Yang Jwing Ming’s extraordinary YMAA Retreat Center deep in the ancient redwoods of Miranda, California. On December 21, 2016, Michelle makes her big screen debut in ASSASSIN’S CREED, alongside such stellar actors as Michael Fassbinder, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons and Charlotte Rampling.
