When Jackie Chan gets drunk in Drunken Master, he becomes a better fighter. So do I! But only in my own mind…. One of several absolutely classic Jackie clips.
One of my favorite tropes of the blaxploitation era was the black guy that’s awesome at martial arts, and the king of that smooth was Jim Kelly. An excerpt from Kelly’s classic, Black Belt Jones. Warning – some strong language. And much ass kickery!!
