Martial Arts: Movie Fantasy vs. Reality

Ongoing

Talk and demonstration

This special edition of the Fist and Sword series will be a talk and demonstration in the Museum’s Kaufman Courtyard. Ten different martial arts masters have been invited to discuss their favorite martial arts movie fight scene and explain and demonstrate how martial arts works in the movies versus real life.

Participating masters include Carl Albright (7 Star Praying Mantis), Gregory Mosley (Kenpo), and Vincent Lyn (actor and kung fu master best known for his onscreen fight with Jackie Chan). Additional participants will be announced soon.

Warrington Hudlin, Fist and Sword series curator and long-time martial arts practitioner will moderate the discussion.

Free with Museum admission.
