Who Is Your Favorite Movie Martial Artist?

Recommended Posts

Guest Zoddy

Jackie Chan.

All his stunts are real, his kong fu is amazing, and is the closest thing I have to an idol.

Not to mention he's a "kickass" actor.

Definitely David Belle, founder of parkour! District B13 is what inspired me to start doing parkour! (look it up on google if you don't know what it is)

That would definitely be an interesting one to watch. Transporter 3 was incredible. The Forbidden Kingdom was side-splittingly hilarious. :D

I know I posted here already, but I wanted to add, for those of you saying Jackie Chan... I re-watched a documentary called "How Brus Lee Changed the World"... and when talking to Jackie Chan, he said Bruce Lee was the greatest of all time, and lots of people on there including Mr Chan, said without him, we may not even have movies like the matrix, and other martial arts movies here in the states. A lot of the martial artists in movies today may not have ever had a movie career if it wasn't for Bruce Lee.

Bruce Lee probably did more for martial arts in the western world than anybody. I love the art of the movements but I have a hard time with the violence of most of the movies.

Jackie Chan has brought humor, silliness, and humility into the mix and so I like most of his stuff and really do not tend to watch the others anymore because they tend to remind me of who I am working hard to not be. Some of Jackie’s old movies are now being released on DVD with subtitles because they are in Chinese.

Bruce Lee Worked so hard to bring believable fight sequences into Martial Arts films and to lose the filming of people leaping over each other, doing somersaults in mid air and landing several meters away - just by not filming the trampolines or small catapults used to launch them.

Sadly now with all of the Special Effects over content movies we are back to levitating people and impossible movements that it seems that his legacy is already forgotten - Jackie Chan is the only one I know of following in his footsteps which unfortunately lead him into numerous injuries.

Love ya,

Sally

Jackie Chan for me......

I love his sense of humor....

I really don't like the violence overall, though....

I was just going to put in a shout for Van Damme. He has another Universal Soldier film coming out this year apparently. I think Kickboxer is my favourite of his though.

Clark Gable.

And, yeah, technically he wasn't a "martial artist." In fact, he never learned martial arts in any way or shapeless form. But he's still Clark Gable. So that means he's the default best at anything, no matter what genre it is.

Ya Jackie Chan worked as a stunt fighter against Bruce when Jackie got his start. He said Bruce hit him one time, and was so concerned with him being ok ...Bruce Lee..a class act.

#1 - Jet Li - Not only is he a real kick to watch (hah, pun intended) . . holy hell, he actually blends into the roles rather nicely. Fearless, Expendables, and . . the one where he has the collar that makes him docile when it's on (ack, bad memory strikes again!!)

#2 - Jackie Chan - Real nice guy in person and actually would be tied with Jet Li. He's actually more entertaining to watch, but, he doesn't blend into his roles quite as well. THEN AGAIN, I admit to not having seen enough of his movies.

#3 - Bruce Li - You just know somebody's in trouble when he walks on screen. Nothing really complex here, he's a favorite of mine.

Jackie Chan is brilliantly hilarious, but I think sometimes his humorous take on everything makes it hard for me to take the films seriously.

I have a great deal of respect for how far Steven Segal got with his skill - I believe he is one of only a handful of people in the world who has made it as far As he has (aikido?)

I like chuck Norris because he is a real conservative as well but I also like Angelina Jolie who has an advanced belt in something like taikwondo.

Bruce Lee closely followed by Chuck Norris. The classic fight seen they had with each other in"Return of the Dragon" is an all time classic, with Norris playing the villain in collesium in Rome.

Jet Li currently. Even in a non martial arts film like The Mummy 3, he was brilliant.

      Good Luck @ShawnaLeigh. I’ve heard the recovery is very fast which is not the case with many surgeries.   Best of Luck, Susan R🌷
    • Erikka
      Had a session with my therapist this morning. I brought up the subject of bottom surgery. She said “Stop right there”. She reminded me that three years ago I was adamantly against  wearing dresses, using makeup and bottom surgery. First makeup went out the window, then dresses became common place and today I brought up bottom surgery. She smiled and told me she was anticipating the day this topic came up. It has taken me a while to get to this point.  Now to figure out how to fund it.  
    • Susan R
      Hi Katie, Nice to meet you. I can’t offer much advice but want to add that don’t lose hope. I believe your wife is a good person and wants what’s best for you. They likely  don’t yet fully understand the importance of your need to be you or even what that might look like. There’s plenty of time for you two to communicate and grow together and perhaps come to some understanding one day in the future...it happens.  I’m glad you decided to reach out here. We can fill in some voids and give you some seasoned advice if you should ever want some. Many here have been through similar experiences and would like to help.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      I’m sorry she did that. When I got married I was not dressing then I was very much in denial. It started slow with the dressing I kept telling her and myself I could stop at anytime, which I couldn’t have been more wrong. Then it moved to I was only happy when dressed. That led to my break down. Which for several days afterwards I was a crying emotional wreck. If I had kept it in much longer I don’t know if I would be here today. I know it’s extremely hard but if you’re not happy yourself you can never make anyone else happy. I would hope your wife would see your the same person that you were before your a woman and gender has nothing to do with your personality. I definitely recommend therapy. I couldn’t get my wife to go to therapy which is completely up to her. If you ever need some one to talk to I’m here.  Hugs Emily

      Sure, binding isn't exactly good for you, but the damages aren't so drastic as they seem. Personally, I think it has done me a world of good, I doubt I would be alive now without it. Often, the horror stories you hear come from excessive and prolonged use, I have been binding regularly for 7 months and have suffered very few adverse effects. Sure, it can get hard sometimes, most of the times I have had real problems is when I was being a dumb@ss and exerting myself in it. As long as you don't do too much, you should be fine.   My second point would be to think about how you really see yourself. It is not really a question of whether you want a chest or not, it is if you feel like you should have had it in the first place. It is kind of complicated, but that is what it has always come down to me. Does it feel unnatural to have a chest? Do you have to remind yourself that people see you as a girl? Do you have a hard time imagining anyone wanting to be female? Recently I truly realized this, my sister tried on my binder just for the heck of it, and she was so uncomfortable she instantly wanted to take it off. Not because it was too tight, it was actually at least a size or two too big for her, but because it felt like she was missing something. Do you have memories of people telling you, "you are a girl, this is not how you should act," and feeling a bit crushed inside, like you lost some part of you? These are all very deep questions, you don't have to have answers in two seconds, just try to consider it. 
    • Mx.Drago
      Good luck, may all go well and have a fast speedy recovery.
    • A. Dillon
      I personally use a men's compression shirt when I am not binding, it flattens your chest enough to pass while wearing a hoodie and also smooths out your curves very well. You can wear it all day, it can get a little uncomfortable around your hips sometimes but not enough for it to be a problem. Another benefit is that it is machine washable, it stretches out a bit over time so washing it will constrict it again. I have yet to find any alternative better than it, especially if you have a smaller chest, not a con in sight. The purpose is to give men and more masculine shape, exactly what we are trying to do.

      I had the full GCS vaginaplasty but what my friends who have done bi-lateral Orchi's say is that it is more soreness for a few days than serious pain.  I can completely understand your worry about the lump there, cancer can drive you out of your mind nearly.  I had a suspicious growth in my right breast three months after my bottom surgery.  I had to have a needle biopsy and the procedure was not much but the four days between the biopsy and results drove me up a wall and across the ceiling.   I am still on Spiro, but for its original purpose of reducing body water for blood pressure.  Good luck and hope for the best.
    • ShawnaLeigh
      So the long awaited surgery to remove a lump on my left testicle is tomorrow at 1015am est.   I am getting a bi-lateral orchidectomy at the same time.   I admit to being afraid of many thing concerning this. As of now we do not know what this lump is. I’m hoping not malignant obviously but very likely with how it has reacted snd grown in such a short time.  I’m looking forward to completing the Orchidectomy and getting off Spiro.   I’m not looking forward to the pain but in the end it will be worth it.  Please wish me lunch guys and girls!  
    • Susan R
      I agree with @VickySGV on this. I thought your post was brilliant and in this sentence...”It sounds to me like you are a trauma survivor.” there is nothing you said in that statement that was offensive. Most of us know exactly what you meant. Thank you @Just Lee for taking your time to help out here. It’s really nice to have people with your kindness adding to our conversations. Thank you for joining in. I look forward to reading more of your thoughts..   My Best, Susan R🌷
    • KathrynnCox
      Thank you! That’s a story that I hope will follow for me but I highly doubt it. One of the first acts I did when we decided to move in together was to toss all my stuff in front of her. Now I get the threat of leaving me and destroying my life if I come out about this.    She terrified I’ll completely transition, at this point I just want the OK to dress up if they are out of the house on errands or something. Like when no one is home. But can’t even propose that....
    • Suzanne1
      Where I reside, no one has seen fit to enact mask executive orders, let alone legislation.  It has always been my understanding that any thing less than a N-95 mask (of a particular "flavor"; there are many types of N-95 masks) will not do much to prevent one from contracting the doomsday-cold.  It is my understanding that a non-medical grade mask will help prevent to spread of any virus from one who is already infected, but will do little else---other than hiding one's identity.   Of course, the above paragraph is only my understanding, and I cannot claim any current knowledge re: virology.  I'm sure all our citizens will adhere to the laws, legislatures, or governors of their land & will follow their instructions/orders obediently.
    • King Arthur
      Okay, so we all know how dangerous binding can be even if you’re doing it “safely”, but are there any ways to compress your chest that are safer? It doesn’t need to be entirely flat, but flat enough so that it’s not noticeable if you’re wearing a baggy hoodie or some -crap-.
    • VickySGV
      I do not see and source of offense in your earlier post.  Trauma is just a general word applied to something that causes injury or pain.  Lets leave it in the pot because it is all part of the same dysfunctional parenting that produces all the other descriptions.
