How many people got into the martial arts due to the influence of movies or television? I know I did. For me it was David Carradine's Kung Fu series and the Octagon with Chuck Norris. It seems that I've read that many were influenced by the Samurai movies in the 50's, Bruce Lee was obviously Huge as an influence in both the Green Hornet and his movies. The 1980's saw a massive explosion of studios that catered to children due to the Karate Kid movies etc. So, how many here got into the martial arts initially due to the movies or TV?
