And usually what you hear about ancient china is crap by biased martial artist, who are drunk on the arts own "greatness"
Lol. Finding good stuff is hard isn't?
Anywhere near as embellished as the Japanese? I don't think so.
They don't seem talk about Ancient Chinese (Zhao, Warring States Qin, Han etc). They seem to talk more about Shaolin Kung Fu and Wushu these don't come until later. Some argue that Shaolin is where Chinese fighting arts originated, which is absolute bullshit because there are accounts that go back even further.
They don't really talk much about weapons either.
There is embellishment in every culture that has experienced war I suppose. Remember the 300 Spartans at Thermopylae? Herodotus was the one who wrote about this and this guy is said to be wildly inaccurate with his numbers. It is hard to believe that any nation at that time could even field and maintain an army that huge.
BTW what you think of the videos?
