Factual error: The time period of the story has been updated from when Frank Dux claims he actually participated in the Kumite, however the scenes with young Frank take place in the mid to late 1970's. When Tanaka's son is assaulted, the clothing and hair styles worn by young Frank and his schoolmates is not period accurate and is contemporary to when the movie was filmed. One child is even wearing a Bartles and Jaymes T-shirt, a product that didn't exist until 1981.

Victor: Now remember, it's full contact. There are three ways to win. One, You knock your opponent out. Two, the other guy quits, and shouts 'Matte.' It's like saying 'Uncle.' Three, You throw the fucker right off the runway.
Jackson: Piece o' cake.

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.
