Martial Artists In Movies: The Real Deal - Volume 15 (All Kickboxing Edition 2)

by The_Phantom_Projectionist | created - 23 Jun 2015 | updated - 4 months ago | Public

This is a list of legitimate martial artists appearing in movies, accompanied by the styles they practice(d), the recognition they've received for them, and individual trivia.

This particular list EXCLUSIVELY includes individuals whose primary activities in the realm of martial arts include Kickboxing competition. Individuals who have competed in Kickboxing but are more authoritative in other sectors can be found in other lists.

Qualifications:

  • the performer must be an actual practitioner of a martial art; simply portraying martial artists in film, no matter how well or how often, is not enough
  • the martial art(s) in question must be able to be identified and verified by a source other than hearsay
  • individual accomplishments (e.g. tournaments won, belts held) must likewise be verifiable
  • Mixed Martial Arts, Tai Chi, and weapons-based styles can only be credited if the person in question practices another style as well (I reserve the right to make exceptions)
  • Kickboxing is considered a martial art
  • Tae Bo, boxing, wrestling, and gymnastics are not considered martial arts
  • styles incorporating firearms usage (e.g. Systema) are not considered


--------------------------------------------------

I have begun crediting stunt performers for doubling others in fight scenes. I justify doing this for cases wherein the stunt performer is performing significant parts of the action themselves and is displayed on the screen as prominently or more than the actor or actress.

--------------------------------------------------

NOTE: a lot of the trivia listed here did originally come from IMDb pages, but I've only included information I was able to verify from other sources as well.

--------------------------------------------------

**Though I have done my utmost to ensure that all information below is factual and up-to-date, I may have made mistakes and therefore make no claims about this list's infallibility**

--------------------------------------------------

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: Many thanks to Animelovers for suggesting entrys #35-41.
