Imagine "Kung-Fu" in a documentary.
13 July 2000 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Probably the finest martial arts documentary I've ever seen, it does for the budo of Japan what "Pumping Iron" did for bodybuilding. The only bad thing about this movie is that it is nearly impossible to locate. I have rented it whenever the opportunity presents itself, but I believe it is still out of print and will remain so into the foreseeable future. If you can get your hands on this one let me know!
