Storyline

After Tae Kwon Do master Tiger Sun escapes from his unjust prison sentence in Korea, he travels to Denver, Colorado, where he meets with old friend, Ray Carver. Carver is a science teacher at an inner-city high school where excessive drug use, gang activity and violence plague his students on a daily basis. After one of Carver's students commits suicide in the classroom, Carver realizes that he must try something new. He reaches out to Tiger Sun and convinces him to teach a Tae Kwon Do class at the school. Though Sun struggles with the memory of his Korean students, many of whom were tortured and killed for their study of the martial art form, he decides to teach again after he and Carver are confronted with opposition from local gang lords. When one of the school's major drug dealers takes Tiger Sun's class and changes as a result, his drug dealing partner becomes extremely upset and persuades the drug lord to eliminate Tiger. After the drug lord makes several attempts to kill Tiger,... Written by Alpine Pictures

indie tae kwon do beat down with a message
7 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

Kick-ass low budget indie beat down - very cool martial arts with Julian Lee and Christophe Clark - Awesome! I read some of the other comments - wonder if they actually saw the movie??? See for yourself if you are a fan of martial arts movies - it has elements that reminded me of some of the great old school martial arts movies I used to watch on Saturdays - back in the day before it was 'cool' like it is now.

This is a story about a martial arts teacher who must confront an evil gang - pretty cool script, even though you might find the story familiar. The acting is pretty good, but the fighting is much better - the fights could have been longer, though.
