Episode two of the “The Spirit of Kung of Kung Fu” documentary series is up. This one focuses on the pole, sword and Hung Gar.

You know who else focuses on the pole? Your mum. ZING!

  • once again don’t buy the “Shaolin Temple” story. Remove the spear-head because a pole is less lethal? It’s still a weapon, gimme a break.
  • The use of that song by The Knife is kinda jarring. I mean, I love that song and all, but it only makes me think of Vikings.
  • Back when I learned a more Hung Gar based style the sword (dao) and spear were my favorite weapons to practice.
  • complaints aside (and though I have many) this series seems pretty good
