    Hii

    Do you know where can i watch the movie of The Asian Warrior published in 1977 by kosmos film productio n.
    Regards ivan

    • Hi Ivan,
      I’m afraid I have no idea how we can watch “The Asian Warrior” today. It may be a lost film. I’m not sure if the film’s director, Mr. Anthony Wee, who is now a Qigong master, still have a copy of the film.
      Thanks for your interest. I should try to reach out to him.
      – Hun Ping
