I was watching Karate Kid 2 on Digital the other afternoon (I was bored OK), and it struck me. While the movies did great things for karate's image, they were proof of kung fu's superiority!
Look at it. In the first film in order to win the tournament Mr Miyagi teaches him White Crane style. Then in the sequel, in order to defeat his Okinawan opponent Daniel San learns Choy Li Fut! Look at those savage Gwa Choy-Sow Choy combinations in the final fight. I'm telling you guys, the truth is out there ;)

I couldn't agree more especially about the Choy Lee Fut bit.

Fear not the man who has learned one thousand kicks, fear the man who has practiced one kick a thousand times.
