Martial Arts

I took 6 popular martial arts Letterboxd lists and combined them. They had 55, 114, 122, 187, 301 and 515 entries. These lists would add up to 1294 films but of course there was some overlap, resulting in a collection of 768 films. 

Some of these lists were about the best films the users watched. For example, the first list has the following description, which is also more or less fitting for this list: 

The best of martial arts films with various film sub-genres and types of practices, including wuxia, kung fu, samurai, ninja, karate, judo, Muay Thai, Taekwondo, and so on!

Some of the other lists did not always make clear, if these were maybe just all the martial arts…
