The whitest of the white guy karate ever to hit the big screen
NTDD’s quick loss to Chong Li would be completely forgettable, except for the fact that he takes the worst bump in all of the Kumite, falling like a tree without any resistance when Chong Li shoots a takedown.
Who let this middle-America franchise dojo owner into the Kumite? He gained a lot of weight though and his long hair is way too greasy in that movie.
Unlike Ray Jackson’s near-murder, I can’t bring myself to care about this dude’s death.
Let us know what you think of the Last.fm website. Lin: That must make you Frank Ducks. Nice list . That trailer was amazing.
Do you know a YouTube video for this track?
Awkward. It takes only 300 PSI to crack a human skull. Did I forget to mention there’s a Michael Jackson type best friend starring in an exercise scene that make the Top Gun volleyball sequence look butch by comparison? See, even though Jackson had terrible technique, and it made no sense for him to be there, he would have easily beaten Chong Li had he not showboated… but then he would have had to face off against his best friend Frank Dux. Bolo Yeung is a presence in any film, what a dude. The last cool thing remaining about him is gone shortly thereafter when his gold tooth becomes the property of the Kumite’s janitor.
If you have to resort to punching a man savagely in the balls in order to win – it shouldn’t really count as a victory. If memory serves, Chong Li is never seen with a proper shirt, only a cooldown robe he leaves open when on the sidelines.
Donald Gibb, who plays Ray Jackson, was briefly in the NFL Best known as Ogre from Revenge of the Nerds , Donald Gibb provides some comic relief in Bloodsport as the hulking biker type Ray Jackson.
Love me some PACO. The worst Bruce Lee lookalike in history. Probably the most watchable movie of all time, definitely JCVD’s best! A 25 year old playing a teen who has to watch his dad get the shit kicked out of him because his dad owns a dojo and the mob is taking over the dojo business…….seriously, Here’s the trailer if anyone is curious. Kudos to you Dave, for writing the funniest article on Lasertime that I’ve read so far. Brilliant. I always thought Ray Jackson could have won if it didn’t show boat…. From the non-game characters in Mortal Kombat?
Chong Li is the main antagonist of the movie Bloodsport. I fight to surviiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive! Start the wiki, Do you know what kind of music this is? In his career, Chong has killed a lot of opponents when fighting through the Kumite.
If you liked Kung Fury, you’ll probably love this.
Do you know any background info about this track?

I was trying not to laugh too hard while reading this at work.
Does anyone remember a single fighter from JCVD’s “The Quest”? Great list Dave, I’m really liking these random rankings, seem to come without reason but welcome all the same! But that only takes into account fighting skill, whereas I have chosen to use a variety of criteria; looks, personality, outfits, fighting style, and a certain je ne sais quoi. With Jean-Claude Van Damme, Donald Gibb, Leah Ayres, Norman Burton. Hey hey about the referee?
Besides one easy victory, his other two matches of note include almost getting knocked out by a nobody and prematurely celebrating a victory against Chong Li (which leads to Jackson almost getting killed). The one who gets shocked to hell when Chong Li makes his initial kill.. See if you can include him in the list.

Yang Sze, aka Bolo Yeung, was born in 1946.
The Best Sketch Comedy Skits Ever – Laser Time. Bloodsport is a 1988 martial arts action film starring Jean Claude Van Damme and Very Loosely Based on a True Story.
Nothing really of note about this guy besides the fact that he’s got a cool design on his shorts. PACO is a straight up Muay Thai fighter. Hi all! There’s also a scene from the film where the friend is eating ice cream while on top of the main guy. Amazing list! – Paco’s fight style is Muay Thai. It has to have the coolest and most diverse lineup of competitors of any martial arts tournament style movie.
You missed the fighter who Chong Li sidekicks at the end of the fight to survive Kumite song (grayish outfit with golden sash). Holy shit Dave, this list was awesome! (Granted, he was probably 49 when the movie was filmed, but still.). 3. Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License. – Here’s another subpar opponent for Frank Dux.
Paco is a muay Thai fighter not a traditional kickboxer. Dux is controversial for his claims which, for obvious reasons, has not been verified. Read on to find out! Bloodsport managed to even differentiate between a slew of generic gi wearers.
Paco’s Thai boxing is one of the best things in the film.
Van Damme’s first performance playing as a mob martial arts fighter…..who wears more makeup than a clown. You’re in a worldwide tournament of the best fighters, dude.

“You think you’re better than me cuz you got both yer nuts?”. Your email address will not be published. Part of what makes his fight epic is the incredible second day music.
This almost makes me wonder if some sort of Laser Time Movie Night should be arranged… which is probably hard to set up due to copyrights and all that, but it’s a thought. If anyone embodies the pure ‘scumbag’ look, it’s Paco. Besides one easy victory, his other two matches of note include almost getting knocked out by a nobody and prematurely celebrating a victory against Chong Li (which leads to Jackson almost getting killed). If you guys haven’t seen No Retreat, No Surrender, you should check it out.It features things like: We don‘t have an album for this track yet. Also, his sweatpants are — bar none — the least fashionable attire worn at this worldwide gathering of the greatest fighters alive.
A few months ago, I put together a definitive list I’ve wanted to do for years and ranked every single scene in the classic Simpsons episode “22 Short Films About Springfield.” Definitively ranking things within a single body of work has become something of an obsession since then, and it’s manifested itself in an even bigger list; ranking every fighter in Bloodsport. Ray Jackson: That's why they call this thing Bloodsport, kid. Like "put up your dukes.". I have tears in my eyes from reading about #22, No Takedown Defense Dude.
Funny, valid points, and this could be a legit source for a thesis on Far East History.
Where does he and every other character rank? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dW5G0b2OBaQ. Add a video.

When the son dies in an accident, Dux convinces Tanaka to teach him his secrets. I can’t even remember how many times I’ve watched it on syndicated television as a kid.
But you still want to root for him with that badass fighting stance. Directed by Newt Arnold.
Chong Li: Very good, but brick not hit back. Very homoerotically cheesy. Do you know the lyrics for this track? Don’t forget that Book Yueng the actor who plays Chin Li is also in Enter the Dragon. Those are Thai shorts he is wearing.
As soon as I saw the headline, I thought of Pumola (without knowing his name). Like he got expelled from the sport for match-fixing and now has to go to a clandestine all-discipline thing in the heart of Hong Kong to get his action. Nope.
It’s been awhile since I’ve seen Bloodsport, but even I can’t forget Paco and his neon pink shorts. From “Enter the Dragon” besides Bruce Lee and cool-cat afro guy? A tribute to the character from the movie Bloodsport: Ray Jackson, played by the actor Donald Gibb. Still, he had an amazing physique for a 42 year old. 2.
He is an extremely strong kung fu fighter and the defending champion. Song: Fight (Motörhead) Bloodsport is a 1988 martial arts action film starring Jean Claude Van Damme and Very Loosely Based on a True Story. 4. And the “cool cat Afro guy”is Jim Kelly who In 1971 won four prestigious championships that same year, including the World Middleweight Karate title at the 1971 Long Beach International Karate Championships.
