Sometimes we have these Kickstarter campaigns that seem really cool but don’t quite seem possible. Not only does the Kickstarter for The Martial Arts Kid seem really, really cool… it is REALLY close to actually happening. There is currently eight days left to get them to their goal. Take a look and pledge your support if it sounds like something you’d like to see.
The Martial Arts Kid stars martial arts greats Don “The Dragon” Wilson and Cynthia Rothrock as well as some other impressive cast additions such as Jansen Panettiere (brother to Hayden), Nassim “Young Dragon” Faras Lahrizi, TJ Storm, Matthew Ziff, Bill “Superfoot” Wallace and fight choreography by James Lew.
When troubled teen Robbie moves to Cocoa Beach, Florida from Detroit after his grandmother has had enough of his antics, he soon realizes that everywhere he goes there is somebody who doesn’t want him to be happy… and in Cocoa Beach, that somebody is Bo Whitelaw, the toughest and most popular guy at the high school.
From the moment Bo gives Robbie a beat-down in front of Rina (the prettiest girl in school), we know Robbie’s chances of living in a happy neighborhood are just not realistic. To help Robbie stand a chance of survival in a dangerous teen world, his estranged Aunt Cindy and Uncle Glen (played by action legends Cynthia “Lady Dragon” Rothrock and Don “The Dragon” Wilson) are there to coach and train Robbie. Along the way, Robbie learns defensive skills that will give him a chance to defend himself… But will that be enough to protect himself from Bo in an all-out epic battle? And will Robbie ever be ‘the man’ in Rina’s eyes? Find out when everything comes to a head in a final showdown that pits legends of traditional martial arts against MMA fighters in a battle you will have to see to believe.
