    Lyrics – Never Say Never

    See I never thought that I could walk through fire.
    I never thought that I could take the burn.
    I never had the strength to take it higher,
    Until I reached the point of no return.
    And there’s just no turning back,
    When your hearts under attack,
    Gonna give everything I have,
    It’s my destiny.
    I will never say never! (I will fight)
    I will fight till forever! (make it right)
    Whenever you knock me down,
    I will not stay on the ground.
    Pick it up,
    Pick it up,
    Pick it up,
    Pick it up up up,
    And never say never.
    I never thought I could feel this power.
    I never thought that I could feel this free.
    I’m strong enough to climb the highest tower.
    And I’m fast enough to run across the sea.


    And there’s just no turning back,
    When your hearts under attack,
    Gonna give everything I have,
    Cause this is my destiny.
    I will never say never! (I will fight)
    I will fight till forever! (make it right)
    Whenever you knock me down,
    I will not stay on the ground.
    Pick it up,
    Pick it up,
    Pick it up,
    Pick it up, up, up,
    And never say never.
    Here we go!
    Guess who?
    JSmith and Jb!
    I gotcha lil bro.

    I can handle him.
    Hold up, aight?
    I can handle him.
    Now he’s bigger than me,
    Taller than me.
    And he’s older than me,
    And stronger than me.
    And his arms a little bit longer than me.
    But he ain’t on a JB song with me!
    I be trying a chill
    They be trying to side with the thrill.
    No pun intended, was raised by the power of Will.
    Like Luke with the force, when push comes to shove.
    Like Cobe with the 4th, ice water with blood.
    I gotta be the best, and yes
    We’re the flyest.
    Like David and Goliath,
    I conquered the giant.
    So now I got the world in my hand,
    I was born from two stars
    So the moon’s where I land.
    I will never say never! (I will fight)
    I will fight till forever! (make it right)
    Whenever you knock me down,
    I will not stay on the ground.
    Pick it up,
    Pick it up,
    Pick it up,
    Pick it up, up, up,
    And never say never.
    I will never say never! (I will fight)
    I will fight till forever! (make it right)
    Whenever you knock me down,
    I will not stay on the ground.
    Pick it up,
    Pick it up,
    Pick it up,
    Pick it up, up, up,
    And never say never.

    Hollywood action star Jackie Chan has been counselling his “The Karate Kid” co-star and Will Smith’s son Jaden, so that success and fame doesn’t go to his head at young age.


    “When it comes to stunt choreography, I have a lot of advice to give. On the set, I showed him how he could make his moves stronger and more powerful. But I also shared many stories of hardship from my life with him. I constantly reminded him that he should always appreciate all that he has because so many others in China have so little,” Chan said.

    Chan was also full of praise for Smith.

    “He’s really versatile. He can be funny and dramatic all within minutes. I think he is a natural actor. He always sounds sincere and real. Everything that comes out of his mouth sounds authentic. He’s respectful, talented, hard working and charming, just like his parents (actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith).”

    Jaden Smith's Karate Kid Training Program


    Jaden Smith, star of the new movie “Karate Kid,” trained every day for four months in order to learn kung fu, the martial art performed in the film. Wu Gang, the stunt coordinator of the Jackie Chan Stunt Team, was hired to be the fight coordinator for the remake of the 1984 original. Wu worked 11-year-old Jaden at such a level of intensity that he cried at one point. Many of the training scenes included in the film are actual sessions that Smith experienced.
    With a focus on stretching, front kicks and upper blocks, Smith has been quick to point out that the training was real and consisted of grueling, intense training. Training sessions ran from five to eight hours many days.

    The term “kung fu” is not actually a specific form of martial art, but more truly translated as “work” or “skill.” The term kung fu is most often used to describe the gamut of Chinese martial arts and a range of techniques. In the film, Jaden Smith learns and demonstrates Wushu martial arts, a physically demanding, active kung fu sport taught and practiced in China.
    “Whenever I teach anyone kung fu, but especially a kid, the first thing I teach them is respect for other people. Kung fu isn’t about fighting, but about helping people,” Wu Gang remarked in an interview with People magazine. Martial arts, with its focus on discipline and respect, often transforms the way children behave. Will Smith, Jaden’s movie star father, has seen the benefits of the intensive training in his son already. “Jaden had changed. When he takes his shoes off, he doesn’t throw them in the corner, but puts them away neatly.”

    Jackie chan loves Jaden smith
    The 11-year-old son of Hollywood stars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith has been training under Chan's stunt co-ordinator for his role in the China Film Group-Columbia Pictures remake of the 1984 hit "The Karate Kid," which kicked off filming in Beijing on July 11.
    In a diary entry on his official Web site, Chan said he was deeply impressed by the younger Smith's progress when he visited Los Angeles last month.
    The veteran Hong Kong action star said Jaden Smith learned the Chinese phrases for different kung fu moves, responded to orders in Mandarin, and treated his teacher, Wu Gang, according to traditional Chinese custom.
    "When he was thirsty, he gave the traditional hand gesture, putting one fist into the palm of the other, bowed and asked permission to drink some water," Chan said.
    Chan said Smith even learned the drunken fighter routine he made famous in his 1978 film "Drunken Master."


    He said he was skeptical at first of Jaden Smith's work ethic because he was born into a privileged family.
    "Training in martial arts is hard work. It takes years to perfect even one punch or kick. Jaden's father is a famous celebrity, and Jaden probably knows he could get away without having to work very hard. If I couldn't get my own son to train in martial arts, how could anybody else succeed?" Chan said.
    Chan said he suggested to Will Smith that he send his son to China for a few years of kung fu training, predicting "when he returns, his martial arts will be truly incredible."
