Master of the Flying Guillotine (1975)

A one-armed kung fu instructor is hunted down by a blind "flying guillotine' master.
Ok, ok.  Yes, cheesy.  Also magnificent.  Fu Sing Wu Chi (say that fast) expertly wields what looks like a fiercely weirded-out hat on a chain.  But alas, if it lands on your melon, you're in trouble!  Forget plot and all that.  This is pure Kraft Velveeta Kung Fu.  Fantastic fight scenes with an oddball assortment of kung fu masters, running up walls, extending their arms to 10 feet long, and of course, the deadly Flying Guillotine.  Make sure to see the 1975 original, as there are a few in this franchise.  Most likely an inspiration for Quentin Tarantino's deadly schoolgirl Gogo Yubari  in Kill Bill.
