“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.


Master of 1, Master of All

“If one is master of one thing and understands one thing well, one has at the same time, insight into and understanding of many things.” —-Vincent Van Gogh

Wait, wait, wait; I know what you’re thinking. Why are you quoting a guy that cut his own ear off while in a delirium caused by drinking a now illegal drink (absinthe)? Well, just because this guy was “out there”, that doesn’t make his statement any less true.

When we set out to master something, whether it is martial arts, medicine, art, or underwater basket weaving, the fact remains that we learn a lot about life.
