Hello all.

I'm a collector living in Chicago, Il but original from the UK. I moved here last year and, unfortunately, had to leave over 200 kung fu movies back in Britain. Since being here I have been buying DVD's left, right and center in order to establish a US based collection.

Age: 21

Location: Gothenburg, Sweden

First martial arts/HK movie: The Big Boss, quickly became a big Bruce fan watching all his films and later moved on to Jackie, Jet, Sammo, Biao and lastly Donnie. Since then I've also converted from kung fu movies to general Hong Kong movies after watching John Woo's as well as other great HK directors' movies.

Collector since: Fall 2001 after purchasing In The Line Of Duty 4 HKL DVD.

Collection: Since 2001 however, my collection has decreased from around 30-35 original DVDs to 8. I usually go after DVD reviews these days.

Collection: I'm a huge movie buff in general and out of my 500 + collection over 100 are Kung Fu movies. I started collecting really hard core last year. It's a sickness really!!! :D

Hello, I live in Minnesota where the weather sucks most of the time, but the fishing is almost always great. I am very new to the collecting part of Kung Fu flicks. However, I cannot watch or buy enough Kung Fu movies (My wife says I am obsessed)!

I am on a tight budget which only allows me to buy about 1 KF DVD a week, but I also belong to Blockbuster online which has a pretty good selection of Kung Fu flicks.

Live in the UK, been collecting kung fu movies since i was about 9-10 years old, Im 27 now! Got a collection of well over 1000 on DVD, VCD and VHS. First kung fu movie I got given was Fist of Fury 3 with Bruce Li, and that sparked my love of the Clone movies which continues til this day.

I remember a time when the only way to see the latest hk flicks was from bad bootleg copies, often pretty unwatchable from companies like Eastern Heroes and Shaolin Video, and paying about £20 each for the uncut versions of the Bruce Lee movies, which were also awful quality. Got most of my original collection of kung fu tapes from boot sales and markets, something that you rarely see at those places these days. Moved onto VCD during the late 90's, and then DVD, which I now mostly buy online from yes asia, etc.

Love all types of Hong Kong cinema, and Ive wrote for magazines like Jade Screen, Screen Power, and Vengeance. As well as running a few asian movie related sites.

Peace everyone,

I'm Cee and originally I'm from Philly but I now live in Atlanta. I've been collecting since about 1988. I've got about 200 on VHS and another 150 on DVD (not counting duplicates because I own some movies three and four times). I tend to collect Shaw Bros. because that's what I mostly grew up watching in the 70's and 80's. I usually buy from Yesasia for Celestial Shaw releases and HK Flix for other titles. I used to buy the bootlegs from the porn shops but I have two original Ocean Shore VHS (Street Gangs of hong Kong and Ninja In Deadly Trap). I started buying those bootleg DVD's from Best Buy, Sun Coast and media Play and I also used to hit 43rd chamber when I lived in NY in the late 90's.

I've only just started to collect martial arts films somewhat seriously so collection is very small compared to ppl here...i have about 6 dvds, i used to have few more but my friend lost them.

Before i used to just borrow copied dvds or download them to watch.

At the moment i've only bought martial arts dvds from Play.com and HMV

Realized I never put my info here.

I'm 37 and have been living in Atlanta for the last 13 years, I grew up watching black belt theater in the late 70's-early 80's, kind of got out of it towards the late 80's with no one else to share my love, started back into the mid 90's with the internet and the wealth of information for these movies. Luckly I live between two kickass Indie video stores that have Asian sections, I also love Samurai and Kaiju movies and been getting into more Yakuza lately. Been on KFF(I guess now it's KFCF) since the beginning of 2005. I'm a musicain and artist and draw major inspiration from these movies.

I've just joined, stopped collecting awhile ago just due to going to uni but that was years ago now and I am quite keen to get back into it.

Started off buying from Flash Legs in Clapham and then I used to buy from Toby's stall in Camden, London, UK and when I went there earlier this year I saw it was no longer there? Anyone on here from the UK know what happened?

Used to love my Saturday trips coming back with 5-10 films and spending rest of the week watching them.

Big fan of Venoms and Shaw Brothers which probably isn't a surprise.

I'm a 34 year old Network Engineer from St. Louis, Missouri...

I've collected Martial arts movies since my teen years; back then they were on VHS, some bought, some recored off TV when I could catch them...

Between my wife and I we have about 350 DVDs, I'd say a good 150 of them are old martial arts moves or some new movies that that would fall into the martial arts genere... I

I am kind of sad that none of my family or friends like the old M.A. movies and laugh at me when I try to get them to watch one, so I usally watch them by myself...

I also collect Martial Arts (mostly Ninja) weapons...

Shuriken, Sai, Kama, Jute, swords, knives, blowguns, ashiko, shuko, etc... If its been in a old Ninja movie, I might have one or two...

One day, I want to build a really nice backlight case for them all... Something kinda like the evil Ninja's stach spot in the cave on Ninja III: The Domination... Where the hidden drawer slides out of the rock and all the Ninja tools are in there glowing under the backlight... I always thought that would be cool... If I could only get the fog machine to work... OK, joking on that part...

How bout Chen Zhen?

here I am. Chen is WAY into his music. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=53831783

He has came a LONG way! I've been mia for mostly the same reason. Geting ready to go back to school! Audio Engineer!!!

Moved to AZ and you know I had to bring the FU with me. Looking forward to house of traps by image! I don't post much as I am really tired of all the negativity about how discs are not "perfect!" Bitch and Bitch and Bitch. no one is ever happy that we have these releases. they only want to focus on this or that! WASTE of time! I am just happy to get the shaws here in R1 with eng dubs! For me the arguments are really stupid! BLAH!

End of rant!
