Frank Dux (Jean-Claude Van Damme) has spent most his life being trained by Tanaka (Roy Chiao) 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 (Norman Burton &Forest Whitaker) 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 (Bolo Yeung), the defending champion, who has killed a few participants.
“Bloodsport”, along with “Enter The Dragon” are considered the most influential martial arts movies of all time. Even after it was filmed, the movie was almost never released, until Jean-Claude Van Damme helped edit the film.
The real Frank Dux was the fighting coordinator for this film. When Jean-Claude Van Damme was cast, Dux announced that Van Damme wasn’t nearly in good enough shape, and put him through a 3-month training program. Van Damme called those three months “the hardest training of his life”.
