Time for you all to learn the history of China to help you enjoy your Kung Fu more!

Now you're properly thinking, Ian I'm watching Kung Fu what could possibly be the benefit of learning about the history of China? Well, what may seem like a plot details may actually represent an interesting facet of Chinese history from the the eunuchs, the salt trade, to armed escort services to much more. The goal of this new section Chinese History through Kung Fu Movies is to show the background information from scans of my Chinese history books in conjunction with clips mentioning the subject in the related Kung Fu movie. Also I'm going to post information of Chinese culture such as food and music occasionally too. I should also mention that I majored in Gov't + Law and History and minored in Asian Studies at Lafayette College. I'm also working on a MA in Poli Sci and Villanova University and will soon be starting law school at Seton Hall, just to give you a little background on me.

I hope you all enjoy this new section.
