Check out this great article on jaynestars.com. It is an interesting discussion on the evolution of  martial arts choreography in Chinese films. It is a great overview of some of the styles used in martial arts films(1940’s to present day). Do you think the is the natural evolution of fight choreography and the modern martial arts movement (MMA)? Does traditional Kung Fu have a place in modern action (or martial arts) movies? It is certainly a topic for a debate.
