Dojo Kumite #1: Best of The Shaw Brothers

Welcome to a new feature of the Film Fan Dojo: Dojo Kumite. We will post fight clips from various movies and ask you to vote on which is the best one. In honor of the passing of Sir Run Run Shaw the first Dojo Kumite* will feature three classic  Shaw Brothers fight scenes and you will vote for which one you think is the best. Most of all enjoy seeing your favorite stars mixing it up in classic kung fu manner.

*Kumite (組手) literally translated means “grappling hands” and is one of the three main sections of karate training, along with kata and kihon. Kumite is the part of karate in which a person trains against an adversary, using the techniques learned from the kihon and kata.

Kumite can be used to develop a particular technique or a skill (e.g. effectively judging and adjusting one’s distance from one’s opponent) or it can be done in competition (source Wikipedia).
