This is the only video I’ve ever come across in which a fight choreography legend actually breaks down how to make martial arts look good for the camera.
It’s amazing to see how Lau Kar Leung had such a natural eye for kung fu. From the angles, to the body language.
This video is what made me want to choreograph or at least learn about choreography. Hell, half the amateur fight clip directors on YouTube could learn a thing or two from this seemingly dated clip.
A true legend.
An awesome poster for “Mad Monkey Kung Fu.”
