All-Female (or Mainly Female) All-Woman / All-Girl / Wrestling, Martial Arts, MMA, & Boxing Films

by girlfightmovie | created - 07 Sep 2014 | updated - 21 Dec 2016 | Public

As a producer of my own short fighting film,, I have become a resource for everything combat here on IMDB. This list is a condensed version of another one of my lists. Only this list focuses on the films and projects actually released (no upcoming movies here) where females, whether by appearances or plot-driven, make up the whole ensemble in a tournament (Raze; by appearance) or are the majority (DOA: Dead or Alive; plot-driven).

Unlike my previous list, this list will be sorted as follows for simplicity sake with no specific order for this:

Films Documentaries Sports/Compilations

This does not bother with any dominant-male movie (Mortal Kombat, Kickboxer 4) where females fight males (mixed fights) in tournament bouts, however, it may include films where mixed fights that happened outside a tournament are done so for climatic reasons (Raze, Girlfight (2000), DOA: Dead or Alive) or where males may train, and for any reason, fight females (Million Dollar Baby, Bare Knuckles).
