After being humiliated in the ring by a dirty kickboxer who pulled down his shorts and then hit him, a martial arts master decides to travel to China and enter a monastery where he may learn the Shaolin form of fighting. The film then veers into "Karate Kid" territory where the novice humiliates himself at every turn, is tolerated as a foreigner, and still comes out a champion. The monastery teaches non-violence, but everyone knows that sooner or later the student will catch up with the bad guy. Written by

As the camera pans past the judges in the final Wu Shu tournament scene, we can see that the UK judge's name is Stillwell Wylde; a name made up of the surnames of the two main characters in No Retreat, No Surrender 1 & 2. See more »
During the first fight between Drew and Trevor, the crowd outside of the ring clearly disappears and reappears between shots. See more »
This was a great martial arts film. The action sequences are exciting and fast paced. The Shaolin training sequences was a highlight, especially when the new monks demonstrated with weapons. Reese Madigan was a bit annoying, but he still can prove he is a tough fighter on screen. I don't know how they did it, but they made non-martial artist Trent Bushy look great as the evil Trevor. A must-see for all fans of martial arts films.
