“Ip Man” Movie, Wing Chun, and JKD

Posted: June 21, 2010

My last blog post showed the trailer for the movie, “Ip Man”. Less than a week later, I find out that some of the bonus features on the American release of the DVD, show my instructor Dan Inosanto.

The following clips really shed some insight into the methodology we use at our academy. People often ask, what is Jeet Kune Do and what makes it different from other martial arts. The following clip will help the viewer to better understand.

To all of my students, I am sure that you will recognize some of the movements and drills shown in these clips. To our Advanced Students, look out for the moves on the dummy and the bridging series that is demonstrated.


“Ip Man” Movie Trailer

Posted: June 18, 2010

I saw this movie in the original Chinese. I don’t know when it will be released in theaters in this country, but I definitely recommend it. The action scenes are pretty amazing. (Some wire work, but the rest is pretty authentic Wing Chun.)

While some liberty was taken with the facts of history, this movie is still a must-see for any martial arts movie fan. Donnie Yen is awesome in this role, and he obviously spent a lot of time working to make his Wing Chun look authentic. (Ip Man’s son, Ip Chun was a martial arts technical advisor on the film.

I hope you enjoy the trailer, and I hope you get to see the film. Let me know what you think.
