Wednesday Kung Fu Blogging

Since this is my first kung fu blogging here at Alterdestiny, I decided to post the best fight in what is widely considered one of the greatest kung fu movies of all time: Drunken Master 2 (aka Legend of the Drunken Master).

This film marked Jackie Chan's celebrated return to the historical epic genre, after a decade of modern cop-action movies. Chan reprised his breakthrough role as Wong Fei Hung, the Chinese folk hero who I've heard described as "a cross between Abraham Lincoln and Robin Hood." Fei Hung has probably been portrayed in films more times than any other character in the world.
