“Tura Thursday” is a regular series celebrating the legacy of the late, great Tura Satana, the star of the cult classic Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!. This series is curated by Tura’s longtime manager, friend, confidant and CEO of Tura Satana Productions, Siouxzan Perry.
A special Monday blog update for our Crowdfunding campaign for the TURA! documentary before it ends on April 11th at midnight PST. That’s tomorrow so only one day left to support the only authorized documentary about the life of the Asian American icon.
JADE SATANA – IN HER OWN MOVING WORDS

Tura Satana’s youngest daughter Jade reflects on her mother’s final wishes, final dreams. Please help those dreams come true by backing our crowdfunded at turamovie.com
FOLLOWING IN MOTHER’S FOOT STEPS
As we have mentioned several times on our Tura Thursday blog, Tura was encouraged by her father to pursue more than one martial art discipline due to the sexual and racist abuse she suffered as a child. And in true Tura style, she turned this negative childhood experience into something great and passionate. She studied Aikido in Hawaii and gained a 2nd Dan Black Belt. She was also a huge admirer of Bruce Lee and always performed all her own stunts in her films. She, in turn, was a rôle model for her daughters when it came to survival and self-protection through martial arts. Both Jade and her daughter Sharla have been learning Tae Kwon Do for many years. Both have worked up to black belt level… Sharla having been awarded her black belt last year. Jade’s time is secret…but soon! Here is a 3 generation photo collection of them in action. These photos make us all feel very proud and in total awe of those Satana women!

Film of Jade in action:

Tura never gave up practicing her martial arts and loved giving her grandkids displays over the years. There is not a lot of footage outside of Faster Pussycat Kill Kill but you might enjoy this video of Tura in action for her last film, Sugar Boxx directed by our Cody Jarrett. Actions and words were never wasted in Tura’s life. We hear her sending out a similar message for the funding of turamovie.com!

PODCAST
On Sunday, Cody Jarrett, Siouxzan Perry and Helen Macfarlane enjoyed a short but lively interview on The Cutting Room Floor with Casey Ryan. It is always exciting and emotional talking about Tura and the documentary project…we sometimes even surprise each other with extra snippets about her life the one or the other did not know. One thing is for sure, it is not possible to put Tura’s life in a nutshell.
