 Cynthia Rothrock is a well known American actress in martial arts movies since the 1980s, and she was known for her good flexibility and good action scenes. She was an inspiration for many young martial artists at that era, especially that the source of martial arts knowledge was very little and we only had paper magazines, video training documentaries, and all that was not easy to get, and only few people have enough money to get magazines or video tapes. At the time many martial arts enthusiasts are learning techniques from martial arts movies, and sometimes we were trying to do techniques we were watching including those made by the help of the special effects, and the result of this was painful in general :)

Cynthia Rothrok is 64 years old now, she was born on March 8, 1957 in Wilmington, She started martial arts at the age of 13 (1970), after 13 years she became a member on Ernie Reyes demonstration Team at the age of 26 years old.
