Not to sterotype, but did they know martial arts as well?  They seemed like they did.

Yeah I understand what you mean, because I didn't want to stereotype them as well, but its not that they had on buisness suits, or regular street cloths either.  So what I am saying is, that they already seemed to have on old traditional Asian attire, which I personally think that if they had on traditional uniforms, it would not be impossible for them to know martial arts.  Also if you notice, while waiting for the train, on seemes to fold his hands in a almost disciplined bowing position.  So just like you I don't want to stereotype them, but actually if anything, they already looked like a stereotype, so you might as well add martial arts to the theme.  I do like the fact that you asked the question, because I don't like to be so quick to judge myself.

would be cool if they were in the movie well they was i mean a proper scene. the warriors had to work out a way of beating them with their martial arts would have been fun. they came across as they knew martial i mean a chinese gang in the clothes they were in they would have known martial arts.

Yeah to me they did, yours it's not a stereotype. I mean movie's clues tell us they just know martial arts.
IMO they had no other way of defending themselves... they don't just seem "big beast" fighters, anyway I don't mean they weren't good fighters. 8)

I think maybe the founding members did and taught the younger members who got in to fight in a martial arts style.

I'd have to say yes they did.  It seems like gang life back in those days involved more actual hand to hand fighting and less gunplay.  They would have to know how to fight and Chinese martial arts would be the natural choice for them.

Yeah i think they did because why would they give the savage huns all of those kicking moves if they did not do martial arts so i think they did do martial arts.

they did not look too menacing, but it would have been cool to see them show what they can do in the movie. Cleon, ofcourse, knew martial arts, as he showed at the meeting. I guess movies like "Game of Death", "Enter The Dragon", etc. had a huge influence on all of them.
