in the early '70's you had jim kelly

now the most prominent black martial artist is Michael Jai White (blood and bone)

why are there no black female martial artist?

Females tend to be pretty clumsy at things in general.

food for thought

because the studios, and most of their target audience, dont want to see it

back in the day black and white americans tried to steal the martial arts from the chinese, but since the chinese have reclaimed there rightful spot as martial arts movie masters.

"for the stupid motherfuckers wanna try to use Kung-Fu
Instead of a Mac-10 he tried scrappin
Slugs in his backin, that's what the fuck happens"

things done changed, step away with your fist fight ways motherfucker this ain't back in the days.

it doesn't fit, everyone is packing now, theres no sense of a fight so much as 1 in the back of the head.

over in Korea guns are illegal so you have the korean gangs scrapping more albeit with blades from time to time. moving around is more practical in that environment, they are swift on their feet, using their legs, knees, fists

the the ethnicity of black and white martial actors should be pushed more

i forgot about Lateef there should be a documentary on Capoeira starting him.
Lateef also played as Eddy Gordo in the tekken role (shouldve had a bigger role). there's also the guy that fought lateef in tekken (the darrin dance grooves dude)
wesley snipes is hitting his late 40's early 50's, i think he should push it more.

I think it would also be good to see more non Asian actors and actresses in MA films , but I still would prefer to keep it Asian dominated, probably just a Pan-Asian thing haha

i think more ethnic diversity is need in the making of movies. period

i remember reading up on this ancient martial art that were pratice by the africans (not caporeia)

but i always like kung fu movies

think there should be more actors though

There's already a disproportionate number of blacks in tv/film and sports.

By this idea we should have more Jewish martial artist films because Israeli Krav Maga is probably the best martial arts style in the world. We need more Sayeret killing machines. Israel's got the hardest mother fuckers in the world, where's their slice of the cake? Some middle eastern dudes busting out gun kata and Kapap would look dank on the screens.

Krav Maga is definitely the most appropriate for modern films. It's the type of shit batman would use to kill people. Gun Fu and Kung Fu and all that ish. It's a little less showy, but it's a bit more gritty.

lol so youre saying krav maga is better than say wing chun or wu shu (which is the basis for about 10-13 different styles)

really breh, lol

krav maga is ok..but nothing can top mma...a mix of all martial arts...pretty much what bruce lee was teaching
every style has weak points...but if u can d/l every style like matrix ..u would be unstoppable...unless the guns go clap

shaolin kung fu> MMA


but blacl people in america are too lazy and lack the fortitude needed to learn martial arts. they stand around in their big sneakers and expect martial arts to be given to them

battle?
