Storyline

Jimmy "The Lightning Bolt" Lee is a former mixed martial arts champion who returns home and is asked by his father figure, Charlie, to teach a group of inner city kids martial arts in preparation for a tournament. The reigning junior national champions, the Beverly Hills Scorpions, are coached by the very cocky and arrogant Ted Barret, who is a former rival of Jimmy's. With help from local food truck vendor Big Mama, Jimmy's team becomes the Underdogs. As the Underdogs prepare for the big tournament, both the kids and Jimmy learn some lessons from each other that will make their bond stronger as they prepare for a showdown with the Scorpions.

Awesome Martial Arts Film for Kids
12 July 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

From a martial arts school owner and industry perspective I really enjoyed watching this film with my son and look forward to hosting a movie night in our martial arts school for all the kids to enjoy it.

The movie really has an appeal to its target PG audience and will provide hours of entertainment for them. Kids can watch it over and over.

It really shows a wide variety of skills for many up and coming martial artists. The movie is the perfect platform to promote martial arts schools and provide inspirational messages.

Congratulations to all the cast and well done.
