Mark Strange, currently starring in Redcon-1, dropped into the Nippon UK dojo in Fylde Road.

His latest film was shot around Preston, Lytham and Scotland with as many as 1,500 extras featured from the city and beyond.

Mark delivered a film and TV fight seminar to some of the students.

Schools co-ordinator at Nippon UK Katheryne Sharples told Blog Preston: “It was fantastic to have a Martial Artist who stars in movies, come down and give a simply superb masterclass on how to sell it to the camera and give insight in to tricks of the trade.

“I will certainly watch action movies with fresh eyes from now on.”

Mark is also due to appear in Ip Man 4 which has been filmed around Preston in the last 12 months including at Preston Bus Station which was turned into an airport.
