Sanchin Kata?

Hey guys need some help here...

I've been working on an article for a little while now about the kata Sanchin. Not a ton of styles use this kata still and if they do, I find that everyone uses it differently. I have my own uses and beliefs but was wanting to look outside the box. Are there any other practicioners of Sanchin out there? And if so, how do you guys practice it; heavy breathing/normal breathing, body strikes/no strikes, etc...

All the help given would be greatly appreciated! Just trying to gather as much info as possible before writing something about it.

Martial arts movie recommendations?

So I've already got a New Year's reading list, thanks to one of Iain's old podcasts about recommended books for martial artists. Now I'd also like suggestions for movies that I may have missed out on. I've never been that much of a straight-up 'chop-socky' film buff, so I feel like there's a lot out there that I still haven't seen. I'd prefer movies that offer a little more than just standard entertainment, but also give us some food for thought and don't rely excessively on wire-work.

Help Wanted! Why do you love martial arts questionnaire

Message from Andi Kidd:

Last year I released 'From Shotokan to the Street'. Kris Wilder was very complimentary and told me that one things that comes through strongly was that I believe you should love karate training and advised me that I should write my next book on this subject. After some thought, I decided that I would do it!
