Fascinating historical martial arts piece
27 March 2019 | by jonnygoldsbroughSee all my reviews

In the days before the UFC the world of martial arts looked very different. Film is a bit of a mish mash but there is some great athleticism on display and moreover it is super interesting to look st the prevailing martial arts beliefs at the time - that some moves were so deadly they couldn't easily be trained in live sparring and the choreography of the sparring that there was.

The UFC/MMA makes parts of this film look a bit silly, but it's still definitely worth a watch for any martial arts fans.
