fantastic documentary on Karate competition
15 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Fighting Black Kings" is one of the best films ever made on the martial arts. Mosat films of this genre are action, but this piece displays the training, personalities and performance of a great period of global Karate interest. I also highlights the different styles of Karate, from the host Kyokushin to the popular Shotokan. One of the more enjoyable parts of the film is the hair styles ofd the time, featuring some incredible affros. Some will notice tat the fighters are not allowd to punch the head or face, which severely limits many competitors. the film does have anegative bias towards some amrtial arts such as Kung Fu, but this proobaly has mroe to do with rivalry than fact. The influence of Bruce Lee on the film is also felt, as many seem to copy him. If you want to see something tangible of Karate or Martial aRts in general, watch this film
