    You failed because you were supposed to get it from your grandmaster, sigung, and sifu.

    Oh and TheService, you'll also want to look up the title "Grandmaster."

      Now I feel better about getting all my Chinese history from watching 'Hero'.
      Double FAIL! You can't get historical facts from Hero you have to watch "Fearless" yes same actor, no not the same historical figure. I know it can get confusing when watching documentaries.

        You both are wrong you need to watch Shaolin Temple, with the same actor, to get the true origin of all Martial Arts.

          There was a massive 'calligraphy scene' in Hero, so that film also counts as written evidence!

              Wow I guess your right. Man the Red Guard was really underfunded in the early years of the Cultural Revolution.

                    "Master Of The Flying Guillotine" is the most important of all historical Chinese documentaries.

                    At least that's what the guy who sold me the DVD said...and I believe it. What other documentary accurately explores the ability of the Chinese to defy gravity at will?

                      There's a great science documentary called The One that I found dealt with matter and energy in a much more understandable format than Hawking or Sagan.

                          This whole statement could technically apply to the bat'leth

                            Point of order, the bat'leth is based off the deer horn knife.

                              I learned how to clean my room, use an umbrella, use stilts, and fight evil monks from the Iron Monkey Documentary.

                                The Chinese Super Ninjas documentary (also a Shaw production!) taught me many important things:
                                • The Chinese had a lot of weapons but they all make exactly the same noise when struck.
                                • Japanese Samurai were as brave as the Chinese
                                • Getting poisoned means you can't use kung for about 3 months.
                                • Whenever you have a lot of warriors protecting a kung fu fortress, they are all going to die.
                                • Each element ninja dresses a certain color. Fire ninja is red, water ninja is blue, etc.
                                • Ninja women spies are really hot but will kill your ass as soon as look at you.
                                • Ninjas love fire element and will burn you and everything you own to the ground with it.
                                • The best way to beat Ninjas is to learn ninjutsu. Standard kung fu will not work on ninjas.
                                • The ninjas have a master who uses all of the different elements in the final battle.
                                • Everyone dies
