Stunt artist aims for big time
Oliver Hollis
Oliver aims to make kung fu movies in Hong Kong
A teenager with a passion for martial arts has become one of the youngest people in the UK to be signed by a professional stunt team.

Oliver Hollis, 19, from West Bridgford in Nottingham, has trained for only four years but is already impressing top kung fu masters.

The young fighter has already studied a dozen different styles of martial arts since he began training at age 15.

"After my first lesson, I got addicted to it completely and kept coming back for more and more," he said.

"I have just been made a member of the UK's top martial arts action team and stunt team called Stuntmania UK and I hope to get into some movies with them."
