Greetings to all my readers - after a brief consideration and serious thinking (my brain still hurts from the enormous activity) I decided to make some changes here.
From now on I'll post not only reviews of new and old in martial arts cinema, but some interesting news and trailers of the most recent in martial arts world. Some different titles when a new and old review is coming up.
For the new ones - New Kids in FoShan, for the old ones - Retro Fu, and for the news - Strike a news.
Hope that these changes are for the better and my blog will become colourful and refreshing for all fans throughout the world.
Peace. Over and out.

At the tail-end of World War II, Choi Bae-dal is a young Korean man who longs to be able to fly fighter planes. Stowing away to Japan in order to join their air force, Bae-dal's first experience of the country is when a con-man tries to steal his funds. Bae-dal discovers that the man is a fellow Korean called Chun-bae (Jung Tae Woo), who has survived the harsh treatment of Koreans in Japan by turning to petty crime. With their different motives: Bae-dal driven by desire for action & Chun-bae needing to escape from some gangsters, the Koreans stow away in a van to the air force training camp.
Being an avid fan of Jackie since 1987 (when I saw "Armour of God"), I am surprised that i didn't put his fimography earlier on my blog. However, now I'm sharing this with you and all fans of martial arts movies, so we can discuss his appearances since the early years when jumping off clock tower was easy as pie.
If they were to examine the styles most often adopted by Mixed Martial Arts competitors it would be difficult not to conclude that Muay Thai, wrestling & Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lie at the core of our sport.
