Chinese Kung Fu
By Vickie Chao
  

1     Chinese kung fu movies -- such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hero, and House of Flying Daggers -- have become immensely popular in the U.S. For all three of these films, the directors used cinematography to showcase the Chinese martial art in such a spectacular way that the audience was bound to wonder, "Is Chinese kung fu for real?"
 
2     The answer to that question is an ambiguous one.
 
3     Chinese kung fu is definitely real. It can trace its history back thousands of years. But Chinese kung fu masters don't jump several feet high. They don't skip across a lake. And they certainly don't fly over the canopy of a bamboo forest!
