Re: Fictional films on O Sensei?

I've seen the movie Aiki which is more on daitoryu. Its a nice film nevertheless.

I heard that there is either a new movie about aikido or a tv series revolving around aikido. Both are probably contemporary though.

As for Ip man, well he's famous because he's bruce lee's teacher. He wasn't the founder of Wing chun. There's an old chinese movie with Michele Yeah acting as the nun who founded the style but it wasn't that great.

I doubt Osensei's movie will be much sought after since there is really no glitz to be had by hollywood.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
