The 7 Most Fight Scenes in Martial Art

The 7 Most Fight Scenes in Martial Art ...

Martial Arts is defined in Webster's Dictionary as "any of several combat methods, such as self-defense," but this combat style was also considered a sport. Typical sports that fall under the umbrella of martial arts include Taekwondo, boxing, wrestling, Judo, karate, and kickboxing. TV series such as Cobra Kai (for the most part) show students attending a school to learn the basics of martial arts and to prepare to face their opponent in a tournament match.

Participating in a tournament or a competition implies that the opponents are in a controlled environment. They are less likely to leave the ring and continue to fight or use unconventional tactics against their opponent. Nevertheless, certain situations require the protagonists to rely on defending themselves or taking out their adversary outside the ring.

Fight in a Pool Scene in 'Unleashed' (2005)

Jet Li played Danny in the action thriller Unleashed (2005). Bart (Bob Hoskins) trained him to be nothing more than a combat machine. He didn't have the desire to break free from Bart's control until Bart suffered a vehicle accident.

Danny's lack of self-control meant that he wouldn't stop striking his opponents until the next one arrived. One scene in the film involved Danny battling against four fighters in an empty pool while a crowd cheered him on. Instead, Danny strikes at least two opponents at a time and uses the weapons he has at his disposal.

In 'The Legend of Drunken Master,' Wong vs. John ('Drunken Master II') (1994)

One of Jackie Chan's most popular non-American films includes the 1978 film The Drunken Master and the 1994 film The Legend of the Drunken Master. This time, Wong Fei-hung's father insists that he would not engage in any more confrontations.

Fans of the first film may recall that Wong developed the unusual martial arts technique known as "Drunken Boxing." The last scene in The Legend of the Drunken Master is a fight between Wong and John (Ken Lo). The choreography in the film consisted of strategically timed hits along with light background music created a memorable scene. Drunken Master II is available on YouTube.

Mall Scene in 'Police Story' (1985)

Police Story (1985) isn't limited to featuring stale fight scenes with Chan as the protagonist, but rather a narrative that highlights why Chan's character is fighting in the first place. Chan plays "Kevin" Chan Ka Kui, a police officer who is assigned to protect Selina Fong (Brigitte Lin), of a wanted criminal.

The last fight scene in a mall that is crowded with shoppers is followed by Kevin who grabs Chu Tao's information and stores it in a suitcase. The mall became a challenging maze to navigate as Kevin had to fight several of the men on his own. The scene would not be complete without multiple glass panels shattering.

Subway Fight Scene in 'The Matrix' (1999)

The Matrix (1999) was a four-time Academy Award winner. Reeves portrays Neo, who also went by the name Thomas A. Anderson, as a computer hacker who entered a bizarre world with Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss).

The Matrix is different from most martial arts films due to its science-fiction component. When Neo and Agent Smith confront each other in an abandoned subway station, they began to shoot each other. They then proceeded to fight with only their hands and feet. The Matrix is now available on Amazon Prime Video.

The Alley Fight Scene in 'Kill Zone' (2005)

Ma Kwan (Donnie Yen) was the focus of Kill Zone or Saat Po Long (SPL) (2005), a police officer who replaced Chan Kwok-Chung (Simon Yam), who died of a tragic automobile accident. Chan's doctor informed Ma that he has a brain tumor.

Not all martial arts scenes require multiple individuals to fight at the same time. Sometimes two highly skilled fighters are all that is required for an epic fight scene, including Ma Kwan and Jack, who were both fighting each other in a narrow alley with knife blades, but still relieving on each part of the blade to defend themselves. Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a difficult martial arts style to master. Tubi has an app for download.

Battle Scenes in '13 Assassins' (2010)

13 Assassins (2010) is a Japanese action drama centered on Lord Naritsugu Matsudaira's brutal and unprecedented acts. Shinza organized a group of samurais to overthrow Lord Naritsugu.

In 13 Assassins, there are several fight scenes in which the participants take a few breaths only to savor their breath. The battle scene, or rather a slaughter, in the film is available on Pluto TV.

In 'Kill Bill Vol.1,' the House of the Blue leaves the scene.

Members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad were forbidden from leaving their positions as assassins. When The Bride (Uma Thurman) set out to leave her life as one of the most deadly and skilled female assassins, her squad murdered her fiance and murdered her baby. She suffered severe injuries that kept her in a coma for four years, but after discovering her coma, she sought vengeance.

If a fighter has to face more than one opponent, the odds are usually stacked against them. However, in Kill Bill: Vol.1 (2003), O-Ren Ishii's army (Crazy 88) was no match for the Bride. The battle between The Bride and the army became a bloodbath in the House of the Blue Leaves.
