it's really easy to mistype 'martial arts' as 'marital arts'

the tea house fight will always be my favorite

Thank you Ale, for this link to an interview with Collin Chou at kungfucinema.com where he speaks about Keanu's martial arts abilities...

"What was it like shooting with Keanu Reeves? That was a great fight you both had in the Tea House."

Collin Chou: Yuen wo-ping did a great job on the fights, along with his team. I was very impressed with Keanu Reeves' work attitude. He only trained for half a year to prepare for his part in the Matrix sequels. From watching the movies, you can see that he has attained such skills that are equal to many martial artist who have been training since childhood. You can imagine if Keanu had started his martial arts training when he was a child, his abilities would surpass many of the martial artists of today.

I love the Tea House scene!! I could watch it over and over. It ends with the most delicious delivery of a line in the world! "You could've just asked..." Oh, yeah!

... when you watch the Tea House sequence in slo-mo, you can see that Collin helped Keanu along. I think it's great when you can rely on an experienced colleague and trust him.

It was my favorite scene--until I saw the Chateau fight, which is now my favorite fight/dance (because you know it is...) scene. Great interview! I'd love to see a film/anime about Seraph...hint, hint...

My favourite too. Like a dance. And the way the sounds of their steps fall in with the music is just hypnotic.

Agility. Grace. Humor.

Oh, Keanu was great as well.
