    Default Disabled Martial Arts Films

    Just wondered if anyone has seen the film AIKI?

    Trailer below




    Anyone know of any other good martial arts films that may inspire disabled people and enlighten others?

    best wishes

    Paul

    There are a few films with blind martial artists. "stick" in Electra being an example.
    Even the blind guy in the original kung fu
    Also the film "Blind fury"

    Well, Blind Fury is a US version of the popular Japanese "Zatoichci" series of films.
    Also recommend the Shaw Bros movie "Crippled Avengers":

    Some very nice fight action from The Venoms.

    There was one called "The Crippled Masters" that actually featured guys with disabilities but is was more of an exploitation film and wasn't that good IMO.

    I liked the movie Chocolate. It's about a girl with autism who has an unusual ability to copy any martial arts moves she sees. She goes on a quest to help her sick mother by tracking down gangsters who owed money to her.



    It's definitely one of my favorite martial arts flicks.

    I watched the Shaw Bros classic "One Armed Swordsman" this weekend. Good film made in '67.
    Also did one called "One Armed Boxer". Not seen that yet.
