Dear Scriptologist.com,

I am writing a screenplay in which there are many Kung Fu scenes. Obviously I don't know Kung Fu. so how can I write the fight scenes for my screenplay? Thanks.

Glenn Bossik, Scriptologist.com Editor-in-Chief:
My recommendation would be for you to buy a martial arts book containing photographs of Kung Fu moves. I've seen such books at Barnes & Noble, and they usually contain very good descriptions under each photo shown.

Also, check out the following page on Wikipedia.org:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kung_fu

Another excellent way to learn how to effectively describe martial arts moves in a script is to study the script of The Matrix:

It's always best to find a screenplay that uses the techniques you're trying to emulate.
