The Bladed Hand coming to Minneapolis!

October 28th at 6pm the Parkway Theater in Minneapolis will be showing the long anticipated film "The Bladed Hand".  This is a cultural documentary featuring the Filipino Martial Arts (FMA).  Chances are you have seen FMA before, it's used in movies as  FMA has also been the martial art of choice for Hollywood’s top fight choreographers such as Jeff Imada (The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum, The Book of Eli, Lethal Weapon), Robert Alonzo (Mission: Impossible 3) and Jon Eusebio (The Bourne Legacy). FMA was first introduced to Hollywood in 1973 by Bruce Lee in the film “Enter The Dragon”, after he had learned it from Dan Inosanto.
