Continuity mistake: When Frank and Jackson first meet Mr.Lin in the hotel he has a little moustache, goatee, and some sideburns, as much as he can grow anyway. Then they start to walk to the Kumite arena. When they get to the entrance to the corridor, he still has his facial hair when the guy says "OK USA!" But, when they actually enter the arena for the Kumite, he's completely shaven.
Continuity mistake: In the final fight scene Jean jumps over Chong after being blinded. He does a midair flip to the back of Chong. In the next shot Chong is completely turned around despite having about half a second.
Ray Jackson: So you stomped him real good, huh, Frankie?
Janice Kent: Even worse.
Ray Jackson: What do you mean?
Janice Kent: He made him say matte.
Ray Jackson: All right, Frankie! But you'd better watch out - you might have to face me next time.
Janice Kent: You guys are out of your minds.
Ray Jackson: I'll drink to that.
Trivia: At the time Jean-Claude Van Damne was merely a well known kickboxer in Europe but was anxious to break into Hollywood. When spotting producer producer Menahem Golan coming out of a restaurant one evening, he spied his chance. He began with the standard, tried and tested basic method of introducing himself, but then departed from the norm somewhat and added his own flourish by doing a 360 degree spinning kick that only just missed Golan's head. Non conventional, yes, but effective, as Golan swiftly signed him up.
