The more things change, the more they stay the same… A mantra that couldn’t be more apt for a fight flick like Tapped Out.

As a child of the 80s I grew up on the likes of The Karate Kid and its sequels. As a film fan in the 90s I watched movies such as Showdown, Kickboxer, Bloodsport and A Dangerous Place. How are these film connected? And what do they all have in common with Tapped Out? Well essentially they all feature the same underdog story. An underdog story which has has existed, and has been re-used time and time again, in the martial arts genre for decades – taking in karate, taekwondo, kickboxing and now mixed martial arts (Mma).
