If there were ever two fathers whose daughters would be genetically programmed to kick butt, those would be Jean Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren – two of the most badass actors-slash-martial-artists of our time. They have both taught their little daughters how to defend themselves and look fantastic while doing it.
Let’s look at Dolph and Ida first
Just like Dolph’s character in Rocky IV, Ivan Drago, his 21-year-old daughter Ida was asked to show off her amazing skills on the boxing ring as well. And, boy, did she deliver! In this photoshoot for Muscle&Fitness, Dolph is probably showing Ida some secret moves and teaches her about the weak spots and how important the footwork is. Maybe he even told her how to beat Sylvester Stallone. Or maybe I’m imagining thing.
These days Ida is an aspiring young model, but she’s got a long way to go to be as popular as her dad. She may look like a frail girl most of the time, but don’t let her cute looks fool you! Ida can and will kick your butt given the chance. Models are known to be very fierce fighters!
Alright, Lundgrens, it’s the Van Dammes’ turn to shine!
Needless to say, JCVD has been studying martial arts almost all his entire life, and, naturally, Bianca grew up watching her dad exercise and beat people up for living. At first, when she was a wee lass, Bianca hated fighting and martial arts in general, but adulthood made her reconsider that position.
Even going as far as showing kids and teens that they can be feminine and kick ass at the same time. Bianca just wants to continue Jean Claude Van Damme’s legacy, and I’m all for it.
But what do these two gorgeous and intimidating ladies have in common?
And now we’re getting to the best part – Ida and Bianca actually exercise together from time to time! I don’t know about you, but worlds colliding like that make me a happy camper. Can you picture their workout routine? All those push-ups and squats, sparring matches and choke holds… Oh yes, that’s definitely a pay-per-view show material.
But still I’m extremely glad to see these two legendary families come together and do some butt-kicking father/daughter style. Let’s hope they both keep inspiring people and maybe one day we’ll get to see them in a movie together? That would be epic!
