How do you usually spend your weekend? How about your Friday nights? Being an avid martial arts admirer, I often find myself spending my free times and day offs watching martial arts movie just to inspire me to be like them soon. So today, I’ll be sharing to you three amazing martial arts movies that every guy or every beginner martial arts students should watch.
The Legend of the Drunken Master
This one's classic, and with Jackie Chan top billing this movie, you will never be bored watching this film. The Legend of the Drunken Master was released in 1994 in Hong Kong; it showcased Jackie Chan's first traditional style martial arts film (which means there plenty of things to learn here). It's sequel, Drunken Master II, which was released last 2005, was considered by Time Magazine as one of the top 100 films of all times. Do you want to watch a comedy with intense martial arts fighting? This one's absolutely an excellent choice.
Written and directed by the one and only Quentin Tarantino, Kill Bill is also one of the best martial arts film that you'll ever watch. This two-part film was released in 2003, and it instantly became a huge hit. The movie, which was started by Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, and David Carradine, shares the story of an ex-assassin avenging her former colleagues for killing members of her wedding party and also trying to kill her. This American film is unconventional and yet amazing because it of its female protagonist who can kick your ass with her amazing martial arts and combat skills. (You go, girl!)
Once Upon a Time in China
Of course, this list would never be completed without a Jet Li movie. Once Upon a Time in China was released in 1991, it became a huge hit that several sequels were released. The story focuses on Wong Fei-hung (Jet Li), a martial arts instructor during the 19th century.
And that’s it! Watching these films will absolutely encourage you to try even better with your fighting skills, or even motivate you to enroll to the nearest MA center.
