Adam Richards

biography

Son of former SBS Ronald Adams, also a descendent of the English Samurai William Adams, began training at a very young age in unarmed combat. He also had the honour of competing for the Wushu British Team.

Throughout his young teenage and adult life, he has trained with many great Wushu masters including “Ranjit Dhillion and grandmaster Chee Soo”.

At the age of 17 following a dream, he travelled to Hong Kong to train in Kung Fu. Fate had it and while on a trip to a film studio he met Jacki Chan and had the opportunity to work on a couple of his films.

On his return to the UK, his dream was to pursue a career in stunt work. This began with stunts for the TV show and film as the Red Power Ranger and many live shows and appearances as the Red Ranger. Following this was his break into stunts for many blockbuster films including Saving private Ryan, Gulliver’s travels, Band of Brothers as well as many UK TV shows.

With the success and fulfilment of the stunt work, he has branched himself out writing action scenes for Bollywood and beginning to pursue a career in directing and producing his own movies.

With twelve years experience on the stunt register performing both film and stage, his passion for martial arts, creator of his own style “Kuen Tao”, Seven different Black Belts, weapon skills and love of fight directing has enabled him to gain high recognition throughout the world for his passion, experience and determination. Adam is also known as Phoenix8 – The Man Behind the Mask and is The Original Red Power Ranger
