Looking back I think thats where I got the interest in taking classes. As a kid I would watch those really bad black & white badly dubbed movies on TV. I grew up during the Bruce Lee days, then there was the David Carradine TV show, Kung Fu.
Then during my competition days, MMA was just getting started.
I still cant resist any movie that comes out.

Who doesn't love a good martial art movie?!? That's one of my best "growing up" memories with my dad. When my mother would go out of town to visit her sister my dad would head to the local video store and get us some Chuck Norris or Seagal...ect. We'd split a pizza and have a A$$ Kicking marathon. Good times!!

I love most of them, but am of course partial to the Kung Fu stuff. The loved the fad in the 90s of the Fight Contest types.

Just watched TEKKEN this week.

That's a good one; also the first "Drunken Master" when Jackie Chan was a few years younger. I love the Hongkong title "Drunken Monkey in the Tiger's Eyes".

I love Jackie Chan and Jet Li, and I've seen nearly everything they are in. An amazing film is Jet Li's "Hero." It's one of the most visually stunning movies I've ever seen; calling it a "martial arts" film doesn't do it justice. A really fun one is "Kung Fu Hustle."

I never used to, until I started training. The first movie I saw was "Forbidden Kingdom". This got me interested in Jackie Chan and Jet Li and I started to look for their other movies, so basically I went backwards. It didn't take me long to discover Bruce Lee. Branching out a bit, I became interested in Akira Kurosawa's Samurai movies as well as the Samurai trilogy with Toshiro Mifune.

More recently I found a movie called "Kuro Obi" which is the first karate movie I saw (as compared to kung fu or Samurai movies).

Do you have any favourites? With me it depends on my mood, but I can watch some of the oldies over and over and discover something new each time.
