The CCTV network made a very interesting documentary on Wu Lianzhi, a Bajiquan master who is the prototype for the character Akira Yuki in Virtua Fighter.
The documentary tells the history of Master Wu's life, and his fight to elevate the name of Bajiquan. There's also footage of Master Wu with (then) Virtua Fighter producer and director Yu Suzuki.
You can watch the documentary after the break. If Virtua Fighter and martial arts are relevant to your interests, I suggest watching this!
