HK and the fists of fury

Weird internet response today. Mostly dead slow, and now all of a sudden working normally. Perhaps there was another mysterious power outage somewhere.

Just back from Hong Kong. Took in some of the kung fu sights.

First up we have Ip Man's studio, where Bruce Lee learned kung fu.

Home of Wing Chun (also spelled 'Ving Tsun').

Then we have the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, and its Avenue of Stars.

A few of the many stars: Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Michelle Yeoh. There are plenty of others, but who wants to spend all day looking at plaques?

Lastly, it wouldn't be a lazy Sunday afternoon without kung fu in the park.

    1. Did you see the Grandmaster? Gorgeous film.

  2. Though I must say, if it's one thing I really hate in Chinese martial arts movies, it's wire fighting. It's so fake.

    But it's sometimes made up for by supremely hilarious stereotypical depictions of roundeye barbarians. I love how we all have big noses, no honour, and are prone to screams of gorilla-like rage.
