The Art of War Theater: Mystery of Chess Boxing

blame it on JES7 January 5, 2013

I was originally going to feature Five Deadly Venoms for today’s installment of The Art of War Theater, however I chose instead to go with the 1979 flick, Mystery of Chess Boxing, a film directed by Joseph Kuo. This same film was inspiration for a wide range of Wu related cultural references, including the title track name for Enter the Wu-Tang’s Da Mystery of Chessboxin, Ghostface Killah’s name, which was inspired by Mark Long’s character, Ghost Faced Killer, and also dialogue sampled and used for Ghostface’s Poisonous Darts off Ironman. Enjoy!

“Let’s see you try the Water technique. The sky is high, the cloud is low. But my water technique is hard to beat.” “But the Earth, can absorb Water.”
