Years ago, Ken Min failed to stop his friend from killing a young couple, leaving their infant son orphaned. After his friend is sent to prison for the crime, Ken spends his life running away from his shame. Seeking redemption, he teaches mixed Martial Arts out of a community youth center. But Ken is ultimately forced to face his past when the orphaned boy finds his way into Ken's life, and Ken's murderous friend is released from prison. When he discovers that these two events are not a coincidence, Ken must choose between a heroic act of self-sacrifice or the self-preservation of running away. Written by Kurt Nangle

If you've practiced martial arts, you'll love this film.
14 January 2012 | by cosio-266-971582See all my reviews

Fist 2 Fist is one of few realistic martial arts movies I have seen. The fighting scenes are well executed and choreographed but not flamboyant. Too many Hollywood films have ruined our perception of martial arts and have downgraded it to a circus display of flying artists executing unrealistic moves in the air. If you are seeking a fantasy film embellishing martial arts, Fist 2 Fist is not for you. But if you desire a peek at the real inner-city world of martial arts, and it's potential benefits to our society's youth, this one will entertain you. The director has done a nice job of relating the art to real-life situations; his compassion for others shines through. Further, the lead character's physical skill is nothing short of remarkable.

Though it is apparent that some of the actors are unseasoned, this minor shortcoming is overshadowed by the intensity of the fighting scenes. If you have any experience working out with other fighters, you will appreciate the high level of expertise of these athletes. During many of the scenes, I found myself mesmerized by the authenticity of the discussion and interaction during workouts. This film kept me glued to the t.v.
