Masters of the Martial Arts was very Informative
23 June 2006 | by oneslickscorpioSee all my reviews

I thought Masters of the Martial Arts was excellent. I have been looking for more information about it for quite some time. I thought it was Titled 'Masters of the Universe'. ha ha ha Never before had, and there still hasn't been, any situation where so many Martial Artist's have been put in one setting together. And there were so many of them who one might say, black belt does not do them justice. The only problem that I had with this show, was that Chuck Norris was not there (they did a part about him, and really gave him his props), but I was very disappointed that he said he was too busy with his schedule to be there. He should have made time to at least make an appearance. What I would really like, is to find out how I can get a copy of this movie.
