Après le post sur les mangas et les arts martiaux, voici une courte liste de bons films d'art martiaux (selon mes goûts, bien entendu), et non seulement de baston. J'ai mis pour la plupart les liens vers IMDB, je pense que vous êtes capables de les (re)trouver sur vos trackers préférés.
Pour le moment, vous trouverez ci-dessous des films concernant :
- Kenjutsu (Iaido, Kendo, ...)
- Misc (un mélange des genres, souvent plus des blockbusters)
- Muay Thai
Je sais, on peut en rajouter encore beaucoup, et je le ferai au fur et à mesure, mais n'hésitez pas à m'envoyer un mail si vous avez des suggestions.
Je sais aussi qu'il manque au minimum un film de Jackie Chan, mais je ne me suis toujours pas décidé pour lequel.
