From devilish and deadly Sith agent Darth Maul in STAR WARS EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE to Vaudevillian villain Toad in X-MEN to nimble ninja Snake Eyes in two blockbuster G.I. JOE films, Ray Park has dazzled audiences with his physical prowess and commanding screen presence. He's in the studio today with Adrian Paul and Ethan Dettenmaier as the three of them discuss how martial arts have impacted their lives and how practicing the various systems and traditions can help children learn confidence and discipline.

Later in the show, John Bierly pops in to give exciting updates on previous heroes Yash Gupta and Alyssa Deraco before presenting 17-year-old Param Shah of Irvine, California, as our latest Hero of the Week. Param created the "Lotus Life Foundation" to provide medical supplies, treatment, and transportation to children in rural India and the Himalayas who suffer from various illnesses and disorders.
