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.

    • BerndB
      Thank you, I just think, that it does get to me, to have been going forward and backward the last two years. And then having a consultant, which is not very sensitive and not very forthcoming with information. Anyway, it is good to speak about it and getting it off my chest.
    • VickySGV
      Good going girl!!   For some of them it is following the herd of ants and not intentional meanness to you for others, their concepts of "reality" need to grow up, but for now you have done what was really left to do.
    • Ellora
      Go with your bad self! Woohoo! 🤗 Thats great that you had the strength and courage to rid the negative people from your life. No time for that nonsense. Very Happy for you! 💜
    • VickySGV
      Thank you for the additional info there, it does help to know what is going on.  My Endocrinologist explained one thing to me that may help a tiny bit.  It is not the levels in your blood that determine effectiveness.  Our bodies have receptor cells for the hormones that they need to pass through in order to work.  In my case, I did have constantly low doses and still they did a satisfactory, but not phenomenal job of bringing me to where I most likely  would have been if they had started at age 11 instead of age 60.  It did take me nearly 4 years to max out in most ways and longer in a couple of others.

      Hi, looks like I've got a bit more explaining to do. In Scotland you see a specific clinic for transgender problems, but your local GP has to then write out the prescription orders, once the clinic got in contact with them. I had problems with the local GP and also there was a problem with the general supply of the prescription on and of for about  a year. The supply is now steady and I found eventually a surgery, which is prepared to write out the prescription, but still see the consultant from the transgender clinic. He did prescribe the various dosages. This is not something I have decided to do on my own. Sorry, if I came across wrongly there.

      Just want to share that today I had to do the hardest thing and that I had to get rid of 2 old friends off my social media and block there phone numbers.   These were friends that I grew up with since I was little and when I came out, they said that they were alright with me and that they support me.  But then I found out that they were posting hateful Trans things on social media, one of my friends told me that I will never be a real woman.  Both of my old friends I am finding out were actually hating and discrimating against the LGBTQ community.  So I deleted them from all my social media, blocked their numbers and told myself, that I don't need to be around this type of hate.  I am happy and confident to finally be me and I don't need these type of people in my life who are hurtful.   So I am feeing myself from negative people.

      Hi BerndB.  I think your doctor may have been a bit harsh there with that admonishment.   It seems obvious to me your levels are not consistent with you're dosages but I am not a doctor.  I assume being in the UK you are under care of the NHS.  Is there a better way to ensure a steady supply?  Is it a local issue or country wide problem?   I don't know anything about T methods of delivery so you should discuss this with your doctor or another medical professional.   Jani 
    • VickySGV
      Welcome to the Forums, I hope we can give you some direction here.   How are you getting your levels checked if the doctor is not ordering the tests and evaluating them as they are done?  If the doctor is evaluating the results and sees no problem, then there is not much to be done.  Trying the "various dosages" (which we cannot discuss on these forums) without the doctor's approving the change or monitoring it over a long period of time is very hazardous and will create some strange effects that are not going to be fun.  The fact that you have an unreliable source of the drug may indicate that another more certainly supplied medication is what is needed here so you do not get peaks and valleys.  You are looking at 3 to six years for full physical maturity of the HRT effects comes on and in that period things go fast and slow just as is.  By all means get a second doctor to review and consult with your doctor but do not become that consulting doctor by wishing.

      I have severe coronary artery disease and could never consider anything other than topical E.  Shots or pills would be risky at best.  It took a long time before Dr.  McGinn in consultation with my cardiologist worked out a plan for me.  They would never allow the other methods of using E as they are much more likely to have serious side effects including clotting which would be fatal for me.  Saying that injections are safest is totally incorrect!   I am not an MD and neither are other member here so please remember to speak to your doctor who knows your medical issues.  There are many false thoughts out there which is why we don't allow members to speak of dosages here.  What may work for one may cause terrible damage or death to another.  This site was started by a woman who suffered terrible damage but fortunately survived. If the pro and cons of various delivery devises continues to be discussed here this thread may be removed.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Welcome Tammy Anne.  I think you will find you are not alone.  Anyone who tells you they don't live with at least occasional doubts is probably less than honest.   The trick for me was to find self acceptance.     Hugs,   Charlize

      Hi, I'm new here. I had been on and off testogel for the last 2 years due to having supply problems and very unhelpful GPs. When I am on testogel, my testosterone levels are way to high, in the 50s, often my estrogen levels as well. I kept on trying various dosages, but either they are too high or, when low enough, like in the lower 20s, then I seem to go pretestosterone. Like my voice, which hasn't settled yet, is going up, my hair changes again, I gain a typically female proportioned body, loose my physical strength to pretestosterone levels and become severely depressed. Also, I have not experienced any change with my clitoris. When I talk to my doctor, he doesn't believe that I go pretestosterone and thinks that I am like a testosterone junkie, also thinks, that it is just pot luck, whether anything happens at all with your clitoris. But he offered, that maybe I should go on 3 weekly or 3 monthly injections. Apart from the fact, that the 3 monthly injections seem to be much more painful, he did not explain the differences between the 2 types of injections. The whole thing is slightly getting me down, also now twice being compared to a testosterone junkie makes me start doubting myself. I really don't know how to deal with this guy. Anyway, would be great if anybody knows a bit more about those different types of injections.

      Very true, and this is why I love this place, TP allows us to express our concerns and getting real life info and suggestions.    I feel you, Family is everything. I have chosen not to tell my kids yet, cause I dont feel the timing is right. I may never tell them, for I am happy the way I am doing things right now, and they are also happy. 😃

      Thank you everyone. I really do appreciate everything. I am not stopping my meds, just the rest. No more of the constant online therapy I’m dishing out (currently I spend 2-3 hours writing to people here on fb and ig!!) no more updates and blogging. (That’s another hour+)  no more surgery talk. No more hair removal. No more makeup. No more of any of that. Just this half boy half girl life I’m living.    I think my wife feels this will be better. And I am obliged to try. Our relationship is just as important to me as transition. And honestly being online talking to so many girls about all this stuff causes added stress to life plus it creates these unachievable goals. I have a family and a wife. I can’t do what works for all the single girls out there nor can I do what all of the kids or retirees do either. For better or worse. That was my vow. This is somewhere between hard and or worse. So it’s time to try another route.    Thankyou for everything and ill try to pop in here and there. But I’m going dark for the most part with online life. Message me on fb or here. I’ll check my mail. And really good luck to everyone. I hope y’all find what you’re looking for. This journey is just about impossible. You’ll need all the luck you can find. ❤️❤️   As far as this goes,, I don’t think there’s a best way. They all work differently for everyone. I have talked to soooooo many girls over the last year. And everyone has different meds. Some people take 12 pills a day of this that and the other. Some have an injection and nothing else. Some have a patch and pills. And everyone has different doses that work with their body. My body couldn’t do what it was supposed to with the pills. Swallowed of sublingually. (Which is barely a difference cause most of it just drips down your throat with your spit anyways) So they are trying injections. They seem to be the most sure way of getting enough e into your body. I’ll prolly need less t blockers now too.    Its all a balancing act for everyone. None are better or worse. They just are. Just like all of us. We are all similar but different. Find yourself. Find your path. And find your bliss. But when you find it, do whatever you need to keep it. My family is my bliss. I’ll never stop trying to save it. Ever. Until the day I can’t have a say.  ❤️Y’all. 💋💋
