Rated: R for violence and profanity

Release date: March 15, 1991

Jeff Speakman is the latest in a large crop of talented karate superstars hoping for film success, like Jean Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal.

Speakman is enrolled asa young teen in a Kenpo Karate School when his father can no longer control him. He's a diligent student and after years of study he earns his black belt. When his Korean mentor is killed by the Golden Fists, a group of bullies from the Korean Mafia, Jeff seeks revenge,

Speakman is great to look at and has a natural easy manner on screen. The dialogue is silly and the plot predictable, but there are the appropriate number of grunts, kicks and broken bones to baring entertainment to karate fans,
