Wow. That was great choreography for the time and the horrible dubbing only adds to the charm. But it's sad to see once again FMA being sold as "Kung Fu". In later years it's been Krav Maga due to the Bourne movies...
Maybe it won't change until some blockbuster Hollywood movie hero says it out loud: "I'll kick your ass using FILIPINO KALI, ALSO KNOWN AS ESKRIMA OR ARNIS!".
I've wanted to see this one for ages.

I've always wanted to see the movie "Skirmish" from 1981 which has a young girl taught Filipino Martial Arts as a child, she grows into a Stickfighting master seeking the murderers of her parents. 80's style action.
Unfortunately the only details I know about it are from the imdb page:
The review on there says so many good things about it. Anyone else ever see this one?

There is more FMA in one episode of Human Target than in an entire season of SGA. (poor quality of SGA choreography not withstanding)
