Martial Arts Heroes?
Several times in the last two weeks, the boys have been asked who their favorite martial artist is. The boys just stare at the person asking blankly. Then, the person will make some comment like, "Bruce Lee? Jackie Chan? Chuck Norris? Ninja Turtles?" My children just continue to stare at the person blankly. It is rather funny to me. I, who grew up with no T.V., knew who all of these people were. My children, who have always had a T.V., have no clue who they are. I'm not sure they have ever seen anyone doing martial arts on T.V. And, it's not because I have anything against martial arts on T.V. We've just never gotten around to any of these movies or shows. So, now, I have to go look for some movies that my kids can watch that have martial arts in them. Any suggestions? They're a little young for "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon".
