Just saw Ip Man and Ip Man 2 today. I’m thoroughly impressed but I’m sure that’s not how things really went down in Yip Man’s real life. I love how things are “loosely based” on true events… But it makes it more exciting, I guess.
Ip Man 1 and 2 would be fine but I don’t see the need to make a 3rd one about his early teachings. Donnie Yen won’t even be in it and won’t be in any more Ip Man films. It’s alright though.
It makes me realize that I should probably take up some form of martial arts. Unfortunately, I just don’t have the time. My dad would always tell me that I have a good body build and whatnot for martial arts and actually suggested I study Wing Chun, which wouldn’t be so bad. Even the martial art itself was created by a women but the style has become so popular (thanks to Yip Man and Bruce Lee), it’s pretty much for all genders.
Too bad school takes over my life. I would totally study a martial art. Now would obviously be a prime time in my life to study but I just don’t have the time.
But I do suggest the movie Ip Man to anyone who loves a good martial arts film with a great plot. It’s pretty inspiring. The first one is good for those who want to see when the Japanese invaded China. It’s a really interesting story. The second one centers around fighting for honor. I loved it! : )
…to start this Tumblr up again. Sketch blog maybe? Sounds like a good idea.
