Who was Jason David Frank?

Jason David Frank was an American actor and martial arts expert. His acting career remained limited to the Power Rangers character. He was such a beloved member of the public that his character continued to appear in several series, although his presence was initially only for a few episodes. Frank’s real passion, however, was martial arts. It was love at first sight between him and this sport, from the age of 4, when he saw him training for the first time in his neighborhood gym, called Red Dragon Karate School.

From then on he was a diligent and avid student, eventually becoming an instructor and practitioner at amateur and professional levels. He has won several awards in his field. He was married twice, but both marriages failed due to alleged extramarital flirtations he had. He has three children, two from his first wife and one from his last, who filed for divorce in August 2022.
