The moment of truth is upon us. According to Bleeding Cool, the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) has been classifying episodes of the upcoming Netflix original series: IRON FIST.

In doing so, they've released the titles of all but 2 episodes, including the directors for each one. After giving these a look through it's been determined (by this humble writer) that they are the most badass titles since Bruce Lee gave us "Fists of Fury" and "Enter the Dragon".

It's been a long time since we've had a fist flying, kung fu-chop suey show to enjoy the hell out of. Yeah we've had Power Rangers but let's be honest...that's kids stuff. IRON FIST is sure to be a knock-down, drag-em-out, martial arts masterpiece with enough mayhem to inspire an increase in membership at your local dojo.

This ain't no KARATE KID. I'm confident that after everyone is done watching this series there will be a desire from overweight, middle-aged white belts to roam the streets on neighborhood watch. After all, if "Rolling Thunder Cannon Punch" doesn't get your adrenaline pumping, then you should be watching DIY videos and knitting your own pussy hat.

Caution: Reading these titles may cause hallucinations of being a dragon warrior.

If you've ever watched classic martial arts films you would recognize these titles as homages to the naming convention of martial arts techniques. CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON has nothing on "Eight Diagram Dragon Palm". So it's time to strap on that hachimaki, open up that karategi and get to work because you're the best around, nothings gonna ever keep you down.
