Ever since I was a child, I have been watching Martial Arts TV series and movies, and I love it. In fact, my mother confessed she used to go to the movies to watch this genre with my father when I was still in her womb. The first magazines I ever laid my hands on as a toddler, were Black Belt and Karate; which I had a chance to read and enjoy later on. My dad practiced Tae Kwon Do and had numerous books about martial arts and Bruce Lee, whom I started to admire together with Chuck Norris, for their Perseverance and accomplishments. Some of those books I still dearly conserve after so many years.
The Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris movies like Enter the Dragon and Lone Wolf McQuade, were some of the first I watched together with many others I’ll train for revenge chinese martial arts films which names I don’t even remember. During the 80’s I remember watching The Young Heroes of Shaolin
, a TV series I really enjoyed as a kid and just recently was able to find looking on the internet.
The best thing about watching martial arts movies is that you can learn something from the story. The saying: “There’s no such thing as a book so bad you can’t learn something good from it.” can also be applied to the movies. At least, that’s the way I see it. If I am going to read a book, or watch a movie, I will be selective, but I will also try to learn something from it.
During the year of the Blue Water Dragon 2012, I decided to start looking for the Best Martial Arts Movies ever produced and start a collection. I tought I would want to enjoy them in the best quality possible, so I started looking their availability in Blu-ray DVD, and that is how Blue Martial Arts was born. I have found most of the movies through Amazon, and that is how I promote the movies throughout the site. I make a small commission for every purchase completed through the links I offer, so If you decide to buy a movie or a product I recommend, thank you very much!
But martial arts is not just about the movies. It is a life style, it is a way of living, it’s philosophy, meditation, training, and art. It is about fulfilling one’s maximum spiritual, mental and physical potential. It is not in conflict with religious belief but is a complement to succeed in the everlasting battle against evil. So besides promoting good movies and their teachings, I will feature articles about great martial masters and their philosophy, and we will learn about the different martial arts styles of the world.
