Jet Li Height

"If you are always allowed to stop training whenever you feel discomfort, you will find it too easy to give yourself permission to quit."

~ Jet Li

Famous actor and martial artist, Jet Li is known for his work in movies such as n Lethal Weapon 4, Romeo Must Die, Kiss of the Dragon, Unleashed, The One, War, The Expendables film series, and many more.

Jet Li could be said to have been of average height for an Asian man of his time, though even then he was known to be on the shorter side -- like shorter than Jackie Chan or some other famous actors.

But of course nowadays, and especially in the West, Jet Li would be considered really short.

After taking a careful look at Jet Li and comparing his height to that of people like Jackie Chan (5'8½" in prime to 5'7½"), Sylvester Stallone (5'9" to 5'8"), Jason Statham (5'9"), and some other famous people, we think Jet Li looks to be in the 5-feet-5 inches range.

The real height of Jet Li is

5'5½" or 166 cm
