I am new to both this forum and the genre itself! Martial Arts films first caught my attention with Jet Li's Fearless several years back yet I never ended up watching many more. Then at the beginning of this year, my roommates mother randomly bought him a copy of Fist of Legend. We decided to turn it into a drinking game, drink every time some is knocked over. Terribly awesome idea. Since then I have watched many more movies. What started as a drinking game has turned into a new passion :xd:. I am now currently working with several others I have met at school to form our own martial arts film review site to provide fans with another source for information.

I live in the US and am enrolled in a local university. I get my DVD's from Amazon, local shops, etc.

Age: 20

Favorite martial artists: Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Tony Jaa

Following the sketch of Athena:

Real Name: Alexandra

Country: Argentina

City: Buenos Aires

Age: 46

Collection: Here is difficult to get movies because there are not market for Asian Cinema, so my collection is very poor.

Favorites: Don't ask me that. Is hard.

Education: Actress. Then I was crazy and graduated in Orientalism (School of Oriental Studies, with double spezialization, Ancient Near East and Ancient China and Corea). Then I was crazy again and obtained a Master in Sociology (spezialized in ritual masking in the Ancient World) and Superior Courses in Conservation and Restoration in Art.

Work: National Museum of Oriental Art, National Institute of Anthropology, and others museums with asian and african art collections. I work too when is necesary with the Aeronautical Police and the Team for Preventing the Illicit Traffic of Art Pieces, as expert qualified in classification, legal seizure and restoring to the original place the stolen pieces.

Art/Sport: when I was young I practiced Shaolin (Southern Branch) several years, weapons included. And for years I learned classical and modern ballet. I obtained a private (not national) diplom of "Choreographer". Now I am into Tai Ji Quan with weapons too (I have fascination for weapons).

Dance: I love the dance as art expression. Is part of my life.

Music: Classic, Opera, Tango, Dance/Electronic, Symphonic Rock, Swing...

How I got into Martial Arts Cinema: In Buenos Aires, when I was young, I use to go to an popular street in downtonwn with little cinemas, and in these places were showing all the time Bruce Lee's movies, of course I "flashed". Years passed by, and Jackie Chan turned in the most popular asian actor in my country, with Jet Li. Since 2000 (I guess) a television broadcast here bought the rights of SB movies, and accidentally, two years ago, I discovered the "dream machine".

I live in St. Louis, MO and have been collecting since the late 1980s (after I started studying Chinese martial arts). A few years ago I got rid of all of my VHS tapes (over 400 martial arts movies alone) and swore not to amass a large collection again. I have about 100 or so DVDs and the number is slowly going up. I soft spot for early 1990s stuff because I got to see most of the big Hong Kong releases on the big screen...

How long @ KFC: As a member, just a month or so, but I've been reading this site for 3 or so years.

How long a MA fan: 42 yrs. When I was 2 or 3, I watched the original 'Green Hornet' TV show with Bruce Lee as Kato. (My dad says I called it the Green Ho-Ho.) Didn't get hardcore into it until my preteens when I saw my first MA movies and my passion exploded.

Additional info: Studied Tai Chi, Chi Gung, and Northern Shaolin Kung Fu for about 8 years during my 30's. I still got some moves. You never forget that stuff. I learned enough to pose a threat to myself as well as everyone else. Look out!

I'm 43, live in Kentucky, name is Tim.

I'm a movie hoarder, but I've been a genre film fan since I can remember. I love Euro horror, Paul Naschy, Hammer, cannibal, and Kaiju, Godzilla, Ultraman, Spaghetti Westerns, Italo crime/police action, giallos, and sci-fi, classic American horror, Karloff, etc., and of course Asian films, Pinky, Yakuza, Samurai, Zatoichi, and martial arts, I love classic Jackie Chan, Shaw films, Sonny Chiba. And I love campy films(HG Lewis), I love Tomas Tang, Joseph Lai, Godfrey Ho films, especially their Ninja films, I enjoy those a lot.

I also am a music fan, into metal, underground style, Venom, Bathory, Celtic Frost, Sodom, etc., and punk like Discharge, The Exploited. I also play metal music instruments, and have a band called ASTRUM, we have a few releases, with a new CD on the way, http://www.myspace.com/themightyastrum and some clips on youtube under user ASTRUM502. I also like like classic what I call art rock, like Bowie, Eno, I like Kraftwerk, Ultravox(Foxx era), Devo, and Gary Numan.

I could write more, I guess that's enough.

Long time lurker, first time poster.

My name is Hamish, I'm 22 and I've been a martial arts fan for as long as I can remember, although I only recently started collecting DVDs from all over. My favourites are all the really obvious ones, stuff like:

Dragons Forever

8 Diagram Pole Fighter

Drive

Way of the Dragon

Ip Man

Magnificent Butcher

Fong Sai Yuk

The Street Fighter

Reads like MA 101 I know but I do love these movies dearly. I mostly collect my movies from Amazon, but if I see a movie in the shops on the cheap I'll usually treat myself. I'm currently waiting for True Legend and Little Big Soldier to fall in price a bit before picking them up.

My absolute favourite martial artists tend to be the superkickers like Hwang Jang Lee, Whang Ing-Sik, Ken Lo and Billy Chow, although I think Benny the Jet is also fucking awesome.

I'm also a big anime and manga fan, particularly the action side of things. Stuff like Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Hajime No Ippo, Fist of the North Star and Hunter X Hunter.

Of course I love my American movies too, all the obvious action films as well as the works of David Cronenberg and John Carpenter (as you can see from my avatar Kurt Russell is my favourite actor).

I'm kind of a general purpose nerd and I love all the usual stuff really. My favourite superhero is Batman, and I like the more physical heroes like Cap and Daredevil and I tend to avoid all the cosmic stuff.

Hi

my name is Mike from the UK.

Got into Jackie Chan in the 1980's on VHS (Rank and Imperial labels).

Lapsed a bit until an encounter with a guy in 1990 or so in a restaurant who overheard me talking about Jackie Chan etc. He ran sunday film shows at a martial arts gym on John Street Birmingham, UK.

Bought a few vhs of him and saw some great unseen (at that time) fight scenes and heard about a new guy called Donnie Yen). Found out the guy's name was Bey Logan. Bought a few VHS Made in Hong Kong tiltes in the 90's then git married, had kids etc. Lapsed again til '99 and got a dvd player. Since then been collectiing dvds and have only a small kf dvd collection of about 220. So a beginner compared with most on here.

Was a big JC fan until I saw most of the GH films by Samo. Guys a genius. Then I got into shaw bros and my fave Lau Kar Leung. I took up kung fu in 2004 after watching "Challenge Of The Masters". I am very proud of the fact that i took kung fu up NOT because of Bruce Lee.

Get my movies from - Play.com, amazon, hkflix, ebay and DDDhouse.

My name's Kenny and I live in Cherry Hill, NJ. I'm a big fan of horror and exploitation films and I'm just beginning to discover this genre. Have to admit its kind of exciting. I'm constantly exposing friends to Eurotrash/horror/cult flicks and the likes that blow their minds and its been a really long time since I've actually unearthed an underground gem myself. Getting to discover a whole genre from scratch is fun as hell to say the least.

I'm an engineering contractor as well as a writer for Horrorhound Magazine. And I'm a burgeoning convention promoter as well.

Pretty much buy all my stuff from Amazon, Amazon UK, or sites like DiabolikDVD.

I have often visited this site and forum for years now and always wanted to sign up but I was too shy, until now. As this is my first post on this site I just wanted to say hello. My name is Daniel and I am from the UK, I am a huge Jim Henson Muppets fan. I also am a big fan of classic cartoons and comedy.

I got into Kung Fu films after seeing "ETD" on BBC's Kung Fu night then shortly after that Channel 4’s Kung Fu movies season (Just Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan films!) and thought they were pretty cool, but it was in August 1999 when Channel 4 showed Jackie Chan films again and I really got in to kung fu films big time and started to look at other people other than Lee and Chan and then started to collect them.

I hope I will fit in on this forum, and that this is the first of many posts!

See you around guys :smile:

I used to post on the Kung Fu Fandom board WAAAAAYYY back when. I remember when it switched over to here, but I lost track of the board for years since then.

I'm really an old school fu head, though back in the day I wasn't too big into (non-Venom) Shaws. Of course, that has since changed.

I'm a huge Bruce Lee fan (as most could tell by the username), but I am not a Bruce Lee fanboy. I can't and won't think that everything that has the man's name on it as some sort of religious relic. Hell, some of the stuff coming out recently (*cough* Legend of Bruce Lee *cough*) is rather awful. Though I did enjoy Bruce Lee, My Brother.

I would say I'm big into Bruceploitation, but I guess I'm really just more of a Bruce Li (Ho Chung Dao) fan than anything. Dragon Lee is alright in small doses I suppose.

Other genres I really dig are spaghetti westerns, yakuza movies, samurai films and tv series (Shinsengumi! is an amazing show!), good old fashioned American action flicks, most films that "film snobs" enjoy (though I do have contrary opinions about quite a few films that are considered "classics"), oh and every once and a while blaxploitation films (maybe a bit more so since I saw Black Dynamite, a year and a half before everyone else I knew did).

But yeah, I eagerly hope that you will all shower me with your friendliness. Wait, that didn't sound right...
