Beforehand I admit I like those old martial art movies from the Shaw Brothers. Recently looking "Five Element Ninjas" after a long time I noticed that the sound effects are very distinct from the now dominant movies. It is in fact so distinct that I am confident to identify a SB fight at once.
Omnipresent is the typical sharp "fuuddd" when striking and a very high-pitched dang for weapon hits.
Has anyone information about the foley artists of Shaw Brothers and how they produced the typical martial art sounds, especially the "fuuddd" sound ?
