Background: Jing Choi, which means fantastic, is what he calls himself. No one knows if that’s his real name or not, because his Cantonese is almost incomprehensible at the speed he speaks it, and he speaks no other language. However, most people would call him that anyway, as he yells it all the time after a good move in a fight, and it sums up his manic, optimistic outlook perfectly. Jing Choi likes nothing more than a good fight. He is not a bully, and prefers fights against opponents of his skill level or higher. However, anyone seen being a bully, or disrespectful to a woman, will also attract Jing Choi’s attention. In short, if there’s any trouble around, Jing Choi will get in the middle of it, happily shouting his name while flooring opponents.

Quote: “Jing Choi!”

Terry's Tells: What can you say about this guy? He's got power, he's got speed and he's got the moves, both with weapons and with his fists. Still, he's a little skinny, and he's going to take some shots in the later rounds. If can find a way to take that punishment and get through it, he has the skill to go all the way.
