- Article: Immortal's TikTok Campaign Brings Kung Fu Culture Back to Everyone
“LAST NIGHT I DREAMT OF A KUNG FU MASTER…” booms a voiceover-ready narrator over Kodak Black’s ZEZE. So starts the social meme catching fire across TikTok and Instagram Reels, where martial arts and kung fu has once again been thrown into pop culture. The roughly two-minute meme, called #AwakenYourHero Challenge, is made of two shots. In the first, the creator awakens from a sleep state, having presumably dreamt of a kung fu master.

Welcome to Immortal: Home of Modern Wuxia Stories for Martial Arts Fantasy Fans What does being a hero mean? What is Wuxia? It might sound unfamiliar, but Wuxia has influenced contemporary pop culture's most impactful stories from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon to The Matrix to Star Wars. W ǔ xiá which literally means martial hero in Chinese, is the name given to the thousand year old literary tradition that encompasses Chinese martial arts, philosophy, virtue, history, romance, poetry and legends. In recent time, the cultural and literary tradition spawned the cinematic genre which most people know it by. Wuxia is a martial arts fantasy genre of romanticism and poeticism from the East. It is the realm of the outsider, the wandering hero, who is compelled by circumstance to stand against injustice and champion the common person. While stylized and fantastic feats in unique Kung Fu combat is a major component of this genre, as symbolized by the word Wu (martial), it is grounded by the word Xia (knight errant-hero) which speaks to the aspiration of the genre toward virtue and compassion exemplified by those who live by this tradition. What is the Importance of Wuxia? Aside from being one the world’s oldest and most popular story genres that is deeply integral to Chinese culture itself, W ǔ xiá is an ode to a noble archetype of the 俠 Xia, the selfless warrior-hero who has first mastered self, and then standing up for justice through action that transcends cultures. This is evocative of a deep desire we all have for heroism , mastery, adventure, meaning, service and victory in our own lives. For Immortal, Wuxia offers a resonant calling for our time and generation where meaning is missing from much of our popular entertainment. "'Wu' means martial arts, which signifies action, 'Xia' conveys chivalry. Wuxia. Say it gently... 'whooshah'... and it's like a breath of serenity embracing you. Say it with force, 'WuSHA!', and you can feel it's power." — Samuel L. Jackson , "The Art of Action: Martial Arts in the Movies" Our Favorite Wuxia Movies Anatomy of a Wuxia Novel The Shaolin Phoenix Into the Badlands
