It is unfortunate that many in the martial arts community consider themselves to be at odds with half of the culture. You often hear more traditional masters of the martial arts deriding the lack of a philosophical angle to many modern martial arts schools, while many in the MMA scene will criticize traditional martial arts for being too focused on tradition and form rather than effectiveness in the street or on the mat.
You see the same back and forth over the stars, directors and producers of martial arts entertainment, arguments on whether Randy Couture could ever take Steven Seagal, or whether Donnie Yen really deserves to be put on the same plateau as Chan, Lee and Liu just yet. Much of this debate is healthy and keeps the community and culture alive, but sometimes you wish we could just bring both ends of the spectrum together and admit that the martial arts is a big world with room for many seemingly conflicting approaches to the art.
Martial Arts Entertainment Magazine successfully finds that middle ground. From interviewing champions and stars like Christine Bannon Rodrigues to mining overlooked gems of the genre like the films of Don “The Dragon” Wilson, Hwang Jung Lee, Art Comacho and more. A creation of the very bold and creative (Team Americas) Zaino family, the publication also covers sports, training, films and everything in between.
With video, interviews, audio and enough content to keep you clicking for days on end, every new issue of Martial Arts Entertainment Magazine is sure to bring you at least a couple of new pieces of information no matter how hardcore you happen to be on martial arts entertainment.
