One-armed men of action!

Oi mates. Could everyone do me a favor and reccomend to me some movies about one armed swordsmen? (I guess it could branch into other physical defects too, but I'm most interested in the one armed swordsman archetype.)

Master of the Flying Guillotine is a PRE-REQUISITE. The Blade is good as well, as are most of Hark's offerings.

one armed swordsman
A guy called Wang Yu or Jimmy Wang Yu made a shit load of "One Armed..." movies in the early 70's. He did one armed boxer and swordsman. He was also in a few Jackie Chan films like island on fire. The best one armed film is "The Blade" by Tsui Hark...Its a remake but it takes it in a totally differant direction. It stars Chiu Man Chuk...Worth a look.
