The Bladed Hand Minneapolis Premier
Travel the world of what is considered the most effective weapon art on the planet. Experience this unique culture of the Philippines and how it has exploded around the globe.
"The Bladed Hand" is a documentary on the global impact of the Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) and culture, also known locally as "Arnis" or "Eskrima", or around the world as "Kali".
FMA has been the GO-TO martial art 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.
The film is an in depth look at FMA as a global phenomenon, which, for at least 30 years now, has been considered the most effective weapon-based fighting system by both Military and Law Enforcement systems.
FMA is also the National Sport of the Philippines and tournaments are held all over the world.
The screening and discussion with the director/producer Jay Ignacio will be in the historic Parkway Theater.
