In the final fight scene Don "The Dragon" Wilson accidentally severed actor Joe Mari Avellana's brain stem with a roundhouse kick. This injury ledft Avellana in a vegetative state. Wilson promised him at his bed side that he would keep making Bloodfist movies to fund his rehabilitation and that one day he would walk his daughter down the aisle. 8 movies later Avellan had recovered to a somewhat less vegetative state.

Roger Corman had an eye of what kind of movies the audience wanted to see....in the 80's and 90's there was a huge boom in the martial arts genre, Corman produced many martial arts movies starring kickboxing champion Don "The Dragon" Wilson.
The movie itself is stuff that you already saw: martial arts tournament, revenge and some twists (if you have seen Bloodsport and some other movie like that you know of what i am talking about), but is not so bad to get a 3.8 rating and it's not even the worst martial arts movie ever (trust me, i have seen crappier MA movies) My favorite scene in Bloodfist is the fight scene between Don Wilson and Billy Blanks, the slow-motion sound effects are just worth the whole scene.
The sequels are FAR better than this one.
