How long a member at KFF/ KFC: January 2008 (I lurked for a while before that though)/

How long you've been a fan of these films: It depends really. I saw my first couple of films when I was 5 or so. I was too young to get into collecting vhs. I still tried to watch whatever martial arts films popped up on the television.

Once I had a dvd player, and was able to earn my own money I started to really delve into these films. It continues...

Other interests: Ancient histories and cultures, learning to speak Japanese, martial arts, music, writing, reading, the odd video game.

Hi everyone, Mirrorman here from Australia.

I found this forum accidently while looking for more info. on the movie Chocolate, and had to join....looks like there's a lot of great information on some classic movies here. :smile:

Looked at some of the other posts and it got me thinking that maybe I should add a little more of a Bio about myself.

Got my first taste of these movies when I was about 12 and have been watching & been a keen fan of them for the almost 40 years since....OMG, that's a frightening thought. :squigglemouth:

Favorite things, apart from martial arts/action movies are too many to list, but a few are: Japanese Animation / Asian girls / Super Sentai / James Bond /

Hello to all my Kung-Fu brothers.

My name is Marc aka daisho2004

I Live in Staten Island, NY USA

Age: 42

I'm a very big Fan of Japanese cinema my 1st. movie was "Shogun Assassin" seen it in the movies in like 1980 was hooked ever since, grew up watching the classic SB movies on the channel 5 Drive -In movie every Saturday afternoon. I remember seeing Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon" on the big screen at the Jerry Lewis movie theater when I was about 10yrs old. I was like OMG that was the most awesome thing I had ever seen. Since then I love Kung-Fu movies and studied Martial Arts when I was younger, but it has remained a part of my life ever since. My Friend Keith Nelson was a really big inspiration in my life who got me into many of the great classic SB movies. He also studied under the Great Grandmaster & Movie Star Carter Wong who I got to meet and have dinner with in Chinatown NYC. Been on this site for many years and have seen it go through a lot of changes, and I love the knowledge we get from one another on here, and from everyone who comes on here from across the Globe.
