10.12.2009 - NEW BLOG launched: Life of Tung Bui - Actor and Stuntman
This blog focuses only in my professional life. It reveals more in-depth information of my life as an actor and stuntman. Hopefully, you can enjoy my stories there! Comments, ideas and thoughts are always welcomed! Please, feel free to read my blog from here.

5.12.2009 - I am mentioned in a Finnish youth magazine the 'Suosikki'
I was a visiting guest star in a competition that can be read (in Finnish) from here. A story was written about this day and was published in the magazine's December '09 issue. Four young women got to spend a day as a supermodel. They started the day with my Acrobatic Body Control class, and then after the lunch continued to be models in a fashion photo shoot. It was a very positive experience for me as well. The girls had just the right attitude to go through everything! Thank you Suosikki and the girls for the nice day!

24.11.2009 - Teaching Acrobatic Body Control to Finn-Aiki aikido club
It was nice to go back to teach my old students in acrobatics. I began my work as a visiting teacher in Finn-Aiki in 2006. Together with the head teacher Mari Lehtinen (4. dan black belt) our goal has always been to improve the club's practitioners body control skills in order to better support their training in aikido. For Finn-Aiki, I usually teach few consecutive classes about once or twice a year. It's been great to see improvements among the practitioners! Looking forward to the next class!

Oli kiva palata taas opettamaan vanhoja akrobatiaoppilaitani, jotka treenaavat aktiivisesti aikidoa Finn-Aikissa. Kyseinen budoseura on ensimmäisiä, joissa aloin jo vuonna 2006 opettamaan akrobatiaa. Finn-Aikin pääohjaajan Mari Lehtisen (4. dan musta vyö) ja minun yhteisenä tavoitteenamme on ollut alusta lähtien kehittää seuran harrastajien kehonhallintaa niin, että he pystyisivät hyödyntämään sitä aikidoa treenatessaan. Opetukseni on aina koostunut muutaman treenikerran paketeista, jolloin olen vain yksi seuran muista vierailevista opettajista. Kohti seuraavia treenejä innokkaasti edeten!

This workshop lasts for five consecutive Saturdays, so that everyone should be in great shape for the coming Christmas dinners!
