84+ Awesome Martial Arts Film Fights You May Not Have Seen

by The_Phantom_Projectionist | created - 17 Dec 2010 | updated - 10 Apr 2016 | Public

Do a fight scene's participants make me believe that either/any fighter has a chance of winning, or that a scene's star can legitimately best an attacking gang? Do the participants exude genuine physical ability, without needing to rely much on stunt personnel? Is the production clean and transparent, free from sloppy camerawork and overzealous editing? If so, the scene earns a place in my heart. If the movie it's from is relatively obscure, it's got a place in my list.

Here you'll find mostly lower-budget American flicks with some international ones tossed in. Some are older, some are newer, and they're in alphabetical order.

Many thanks to Mantis for his suggestions!
