The 36th Blogger of Shaolin

Shaolin shadow blogging and the Wu Tang sword style

82 notes

If you’ve seen “Enter the Dragon” (and if you haven’t…what the fuck?), you may know Bolo Yeung as the burly henchman to Mr. Han’s maniacal villain.
Well, before he focused on bodybuilding, Yeung was a pretty committed kung fu practitioner, particularly in the combat components of Tai Chi.

Here he is (in red) busting out some old school shapes in “10 Magnificent Killers.”

If you look carefully, you’ll notice he doesn’t actually look at his opponent when fighting. That was his character’s gimmick - the “not looking” style of kung fu. And that’s why 70’s kung fu films were so fucking great.
