There aren’t a lot of people who can say they have not watched Power Rangers in some form or the other. I remember yelling the mantra Go Go Power Rangers as I ran through the house only to stop dead in my tracks and say the iconic line “It’s Morphin Time!”
Yes the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was a huge part of my childhood. Originally consisting of five teenagers with attitude. Jason, Billy. Zack, Trini and Kimberley were soon joined by a sixth ranger. The green ranger, Tommy played by Jason David Frank.
Tommy soon became a fan favorite. The green power ranger with his iconic gold shield. His flute which would summon up his Dragon Zord. JDF really brought that character to life.
Jason was no stranger to fighting, he is an accomplished Ju Jitsu fighter as well as having mastered Muay Thai and American Karate. The Go Go Green Ranger has even World Karate Hall of Fame. Those are huge achievements. If that isn’t enough he has even created his own fighting form, called Toso Kune Do. He also owns a few Dojo’s where he develops future fighters. Dubbed the Rising Sun Karate. Jason became the Guinness World Record holder for the most 1-inch pine board broken during a skydive freefall. Jason David Frank will take part in Q&A sessions on all four days, along with other exciting fan interactions.
JDF really is the heart of the franchise. Having returned the series many times. to me, he will always be the Green Ranger. The ranger that fought the evil within to become the hero he was born to be.
We are very much looking forward to having Jason David Frank as a guest at Comic-Con Africa this year. We have so much to ask him.
