Hailed by Yuen Wo Ping, the genius and very talented martial arts choreographer as well as director, in the late 90s as the martial arts star with the most potential among the younger generation, Wu Jing is a multiple-time national wushu champion from Beijing, China. Wu Jing was born into a royal Manchurian family, belonging to Yellow Banner of the Eight-Banner Confederation, and both his grandfather and father are martial artists.
A former member as well as assistant coach of Beijing Wushu Team, he was sent by his father to Beijing Wushu Academy to train in martial arts at a tender age of 6, albeit somewhat reluctantly initially. But after acclimatising himself to the new environment and the rigorous martial arts training routine, his passion for it grew stronger.

Around 1995, when the film director of Jet Li's highly successful Shaolin Temple series, Cheung Sing Yim, and Yuen Wo Ping visited Beijing Wushu Academy to look for a suitable candidate for Taichi 2, they discovered Wu Jing, of whom Coach Wu Bin was unwilling to let go, and a new martial arts star was born. With Yuen Wo Ping as the martial arts choreographer, you can expect nothing less than captivating fight scenes, even if the plot is slightly cheesy - just a little. Wu Jing later signed a three year contract with Yuen Wo Ping and in the ensuing years, they made 3 TV series: Master of Taichi, New Shaolin Temple and Swordsman of Flying Dagger, all of which enjoyed huge success in the East. Wu Jing's incredible display of martial arts and great acting skills in especially Master of Taichi, where he went to the actual Chen Village to learn more about Chen Style Taichi, won him tremendous acclaims and respect from the audience in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

An assiduous actor who does everything with utmost dedication and commitment, Wu Jing always delivers his best and is disinclined to rely on stunt doubles, even with highly demanding and dangerous stunts. Besides doing his part as an actor, Wu Jing also offers his inputs on the script and the role he is doing, both of which are usually positively accepted by the directors. Having learned action direction from Yuen Wo Ping and Yuen Bun, he also participates in martial arts choreography of his works, such as Metamorphosis of Heavenly Silkworm, Shaolin King of Martial Arts and The Empire is of More Importance. In the latter, he designed two distinct sets of kungfu for the the twin roles of Emperor Qianlong and his commoner brother he was playing.
