Frank Dux has spent most his life being trained by Tanaka to participate in the Kumite, the ultimate martial arts tournament, where participants are seriously injured, even killed. Frank decides to go despite being told by his superiors in the army that he can’t because they need him. Two army officers are sent to get him and the trail leads to Hong Kong but Frank eludes them. While Frank advances, he knows that he may have to face Chong Li, the defending champion, who has killed a few participants.

  • Goofs:Continuity: Parades gets his leg broken in the fight with Chong Li. However, throughout the next several scenes he is unhurt and seated on the bleachers.
    Revealing mistakes: When Dux and Jackson are playing Karate Champ together, a closer look at the screen reveals that it is in single-player mode.
    Continuity: Right after the shot of Pumola (the sumo fighter) falling to the mat after being defeated by Dux, there is a cut to Ray and Lin cheering him on. However, Pumola is seen still sitting behind the two of them in the upper right corner.
    Anachronisms: The film is from 1988, the flashback scene is at least 10 years prior. During the flashback scene in which Frank defends Shingo from school bullies, one of the onlookers is wearing a "Bartles and Jaymes" T-Shirt. Bartles and Jaymes was introduced in 1985.
    Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In a flashback to young Dux's childhood, while accompanying his menacing friends to steal Tanaka's sword, Frank is wearing a NY Giants jersey and a SF Giants hat.
  • Quotes:
    Jackson: Time to separate the men from the boys.
    Victor: Just be sure Chong Li doesn't separate your head from your body.

    Chong Li: You break my record, now I break you, like I break your friend.
