Movie Info

The Martial Arts Kid is a story about a boy who learns how to stand up for himself and protect others, a fun family movie that may spark conversations on bullying and protecting others without becoming a bully yourself. A quintessential good versus evil tale that may intrigue youngsters to join marital arts, it's a coming of age story about troubled Cleveland teen Robbie Oakes (Jansen Panettiere) who moves to Cocoa Beach, Florida to live with his Aunt Cindy (Cynthia Rothrock) and Uncle Glen (Don "The Dragon" Wilson). Upon his arrival, he meets a beautiful girl, Rina (Kathryn Newton), whose boyfriend, Bo (Matthew Ziff), has made it his personal mission to make Robbie's life as difficult as possible. Robbie soon finds himself learning martial arts from his Aunt and Uncle to protect himself and the people he cares about. -- (C) Traditionz Entertainment

So we have one minority pitted against the other minority in a bid to prove which is worthier of inclusion, while the bad guy who started the fight, Bo, is white.

For a movie starring so many action stars and fighting champs, The Martial Arts Kid falls surprisingly short of winning any medals.
