Robert Downey Jr. Credits Martial Arts In Saving His Life
"Before Robert Downey Jr. became Iron-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he struggled with serious drug addiction. It's his comeback story from that, though, that has become such an inspiration for his fans. Staying sober is no mere feat, but the actor has managed to do so, while watching his career take off in a way it had never done before. The Dolittle star recently spoke on the Joe Rogan Podcast about what he feels has helped him on his journey. . . ."
"Downey Jr. managed to overcome his addiction and eventually got back to acting work. Soon, the call came for him to step into the iron-clad suit of one of Marvel's biggest superheroes, Iron-Man. The actor become a household name, but more importantly, he stayed sober. Downey Jr. attributes part of his success to martial arts, most particularly Wing-Chun, which is a form of Kung Fu. Downey Jr. says that the discipline necessary to practice Wing-Chu helped give him the discipline to stick to his recovery."
