How to learn to fight like Jackie Chan?Watch
Bear in mind Katate and Kung Fu are martial ARTS, and not necessarily effective combat techniques in today's society. If you want to learn a combat style for effectiveness, as opposed to a martial art for show and performance, then take a look at Krav Maga and MCMAP. In real life, nobody conveniently waits in line to get a flying kick to the face.

To fight like Jackie Chan (used to), take a look at local martial arts schools for Karate and/or Kung Fu lessions. Without knowing your current fitness, flexibility and stuff, it's impossible to up a time on how long it would take you to learn it to that level of skill. If you worked hard and completely dedicated yourself to it, perhaps 5-8 years, but that is a stretch.

Why are people not giving serious answers? I know you want me to fit your image you have of me as a troll, but, if someone who was well respected on this forum posted it, I'm sure he/she would receive serious replies, which I don't think is fair at all, because I post just as constructive threads/posts as they would. I really don't want to use the report button today.
Jackie Chan spent his youth training severely in acrobatics and martial arts in a Peking opera school, and has trained in a variety of martial arts his whole life. In his films, he predominantly uses kung-fu, so you might consider joining a local kung-fu school, though the ship has probably sailed on catching up to Jackie Chan's ability.
Well, basically, as the title says, and how long would it take to learn it too?
The best way to learn is to try, so you'll build experience as you go.
As to how long.. How long is a piece of string? How much time can you dedicate to learning a martial art?
People aren't giving you serious answers cause this is a bit of a pointless thread which can resolved by googling him and looking up what type of Martial arts he did, then going to a training center nearby.
Some people may have a natural aptitude for martial arts, if you are good at dancing then that is the case.
Then there's the numerous types of martial arts out there with differing philosophies and styles, some of which may be suited to your personal attributes and likes, therefore you'll take to a particular style quicker.
The name kung fu is just an umbrella name for Chinese martial arts, there are hundreds of Chinese styles that differ, e.g wing chun is about hitting and blocking at the same time & straight lines, tai chi is more internal and about circular movements, also about cultivating chi energy.
There's no short cuts other than intense training, how much time can you dedicate to it? Once a week for an hour and it's probably going to be 10 years, although there are many places that do intense shaolin training in China, here you live like a monk for several months and do it everyday for hours on end.
Why do you want to fight like Jackie anyway? He's old now.
