"I never say to myself I'm the best fighter in the world.

There Will Always Be Martial Art Movies

In many ways kung fu movies are similar to American style films like westerns, most people associate Chinese cinema with kung fu movies. Martial arts, and kung fu movies were part of the first types of Chinese cinema productions. It seems to me with the popularity of modern mixed martial arts fighting organizations, growth of martial arts awareness around the world, I believe that kung fu martial arts movies will be staying with us forever.
