While behind the scenes of the 2011 martial arts film Shaolin, someone recorded a lesson taking place between Jackie Chan and a young monk.

However, to everyone's surprise, the young boy wasn't learning from Jackie Chan, but was instead doing the teaching. The adolescent monk teaches Jackie Shaolin techniques and proceeds to correct Chan's errors, much to Jackie's amusement.

Does he not know who Chan is!? Jackie play's along brilliantly and gave the young child a day to remember. Imagine telling your friends you taught Jackie Chan shaolin techniques as a toddler!

The Young boy is adorable, and him correcting Jackie Chan's stance may well be the cutest Martial Arts related thing I've ever seen.

Cute isn't the most common word associated with such a strict and disciplined world, but it is certainly the most fitting description of this video. It shows through Jackie Chan's incredible discipline and professionalism, he can still find time to switch off and engage in a bit of fun with a young boy who may well follow in the footsteps of the great film legend.

Jackie Chan is a true renaissance man. He's widely known for his work as an actor, director, producer, expert martial artist and operatic singer. Since he began acting in the 1960s, Chan has appeared in over 150 feature films.

He has slowly earned himself the reputation as one of the most hard working and respected martial artists in the industry. In addition to his impressive career, Chan started the Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation and is a well-known philanthropist.

This video highlights how much attention he pays to everyone around him, from Hollywood's elite to the youngest children. Don't mistake Jackie's kindness for weakness however, as behind the cheesy smile and horseplay is an incredibly talented martial arts practitioner.
