I want to get into martial arts stunts, I have a few questions.

I have a background in martial arts, and I want to be a stunt double or stunt extra for movies.

Is there any special training involved besides knowing how to do martial arts?

Would I be better off as a jack of all trades stuntman who specializes in martial arts or is it possible to stay in the one area?

I have 5 tattoos, would this cause much of a problem?

I live in Tampa FL, and I don't really hear much about movies being casted here. Would I have to move to Hollywood? I don't know much about film casting but I know it'd be a little ridiculous to pay for a $400 round trip when you're getting payed $500 for the scene.

Thanks
