Background Info (from Wikipedia): Jason Stillwell (Kurt McKinney) is a young karate student and Bruce Lee fanatic who trains in his father’s (Timothy D. Baker) Los Angeles dojo. One night after a training session, the dojo is visited by members of an organized crime syndicate. After refusing to join the organization, Jason’s father has his leg broken by a Russian martial artist named Ivan Kraschinsky (Jean-Claude Van Damme), the hired thug of the boss.
The Stillwell family relocates to Seattle, where Jason meets R.J. Madison (J.W. Fails) and they become good friends. Jason’s girlfriend, Kelly, also comes to visit him. Despite this, Jason has a hard time adjusting and is constantly harassed by the local bullies. Fed up with the beatings, Jason visits the grave of Bruce Lee and beseeches him for aid.
