Resource description

In this essay, I wish to examine the relation between body, movement andcostume in Chinese martial arts film. I propose to see fight choreography asdance, and I rush to say that this is a totally unoriginal claim on my part;practically any book or commentary on the martial arts genre will use theword dance, either literally or evocatively. There are good reasons for this, as Iwill discuss below.
