Kung Fu Panda: The Adventures of Liu Zhang.
FULL TITLE: Kung Fu Panda: The Adventures of Liu Zhang - The Art Of Being Parallel.
It can be really thrilling and exiting when you are at the legendary Jade Palace in the training hall trying to improve your deadly skills in martial arts and gymnastics whilst trying to stay alive. It isn’t a joke when you literally have to keep an eye out for the Tiger Claws, the swinging hoops high above the swirled beams that twist whilst keeping your balance and sparring with an opponent.
Especially when one of them is the legendary Furious Five and Po, The Dragon Warrior!
It is now known as The Furious Six with me, Liu “The Jade” Zhang being the adopted daughter to Master Tigress.
I had been on the twirled beams, avoided Tiger Claws, The Jade Bowl of Wisdom, the Fire Pit, the Gator Gauntlet, and sparred a few times. This is really tiring, but its great to sit down afterwards to a delicious meal which tonight is my all-time favourite brought from my Zhang’s down at H

02. Let me see your true self (part 1)
It was an afternoon just like any other in the Jade Palace, a beautiful blue sky with few clouds, temperature pleasantly warm, a gentle breeze going around all over the mountain, and a pretty quiet environment.
Well, at least inside the palace, and in the huge staircase, but in the Training Hall, I (Liu Zhang) was training very hard. After a good stretch, I was running from one side to the other and using all my energies to complete the training circuit. I was training my endurance in combat.
"AGAIN!" Master Shifu ordered after I had completed the circuit, going and back, and for the 6th time I ran again to continue, going to the Seven Swinging Clubs of Instant Oblivion, or as I prefer to say: treadmills.
Running as fast as I could and using my arms to balance, I went from one end to the other of the treadmill and did a backflip to proceed to the next. And as I ran, also had to worry about those w

03. Only the strongest will remain
"I don't believe it! This is gonna be Awesome! Can't wait!" I exclaimed excitedly, then ripped the poster from the wall.
Nothing better than good news to brighten a cloudy day like that. It had been two weeks since the incident with Taotie, and from the day he was arrested, not much happened in the Valley of Peace. But that'd change now! A great event was coming, the TWT (Thunder Warrior Tournament), a great martial arts tournament, had just announced the opening of registration for participants.
It only happens once every five years, and I had only heard about the great and epic fights that it brought to everyone. Fights one against one, in pairs, in teams of 3 to 4 combatants; also featured fights with the most diverse blades and other weapons...it was a paradise for any lover of martial arts! Not to mention that several schools and kung fu academies and of other styles were eager to enroll their st
01. Kung Fu Panda 3 - Super...
TITLE - Kung Fu Panda 3 - Chapter 01. Superlative Lethargy Training!
It was another early morning in the Jade Palace for Master Shifu, The Furious Five, and Po, AKA "The Dragon Warrior". But instead of constant and routinely training exercises, being in a state of 'Inner Peace', etc... We all had woken up fed up, and surprisingly nobody knew what to do for a change!
There were no bad guys to fight, the Valley was at peace and literally lived to its name, and generally so was all of China at peace as well.
Master Shifu just sat on the stairs that led up to the palace, the rest of the Five wondered and pondered on what to do outside on the training ground, Po wasn't hungry, and I (Tigress) just laid on my back and gazed up to the hot summers clear blue sky.
"What do you have planned for today Shifu? Nothing, I have nothing planned for today!" Shifu said to himself, as he chucked pebbles down the steps to relieve his boredom.
"I want to get something done, oh yeah! Wi YAH!" Po sai

Firstly this isn’t a review of the movie, just my thoughts on it.
I went to see Kung Fu Panda 3 a couple weeks ago, a couple things have been on my mind since. Now, firstly it wasn’t a bad movie, I liked the villain, the story line was alright…I guess.
The first thing I noticed is how Tigress has definitely softened up since KFP2, but I’m honestly not sure if I like it or not yet. With the addition of her new, more eye-catching outfit, I guess I expected her to have a more central role, yet she still seemed like a background character.
But then it is Kung Fu Panda, not Kung Fu Tigress
I think what’s happened is I’ve read so many Fan-Fiction stories, like Path of the Rising Sun here on DA, that are more mature and focus more on Tigress. That it’s sort of warped my view of the movies and I’ve forgotten that, at its core, Kung Fu Panda is still a kids movie.
As for the state of a possible Tigress/ Po pairing, I don’t think Dreamworks is heading in that direction, I didn’t really see any evidence of Ti/Po in the movie at all. I’d have to watch it again to be absolutely sure, I hate to say it but I think Tigress and Po are heading for the ‘just friends’ relationship. Tigress did call Po ‘A Friend’ at one point, but that’s the closest to Ti/Po the movie got.
If that’s what Dreamworks wants them to just be friends, fine, but they should include another tiger for Tigress then.
All in all, I don’t think it was a bad movie, but I’ve read Fan-Fictions that are better, more mature, focus more on my favorite character (Tigress). I’ll still buy it on DVD when it comes out (If only for the Directors commentary) but as of now, KFP2 is still my favorite of the three.
Those are my thoughts on KFP3, it took me awhile to come to these conclusions and they are of course, subject to change if I learn anything new.
