CT058 I’m the M*****F****** Iron Fist!

April 23, 2017

This week,  Ezra Scott from James McLain's Kosho School of Karate in Nashville joins the show. Ezra and I discuss the recent release of Marvel's Iron Fist on Netflix, and also the other Marvel shows including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage.  We start the show focusing on the fight choreography, by in the 2nd half of the show we get into some of the social issues represented by the shows, especially the criticisms of Cultural Appropriation that have been leveled at Iron Fist.  Particularly those regarding the appropriateness of having a white person portrayed as being a master of Asian martial arts.
