Featuring top-notch karate action, this film about a kick-off competition between two opposing martial arts coaches offers all the fight scenes any lover of the genre could want. An ex-Nazi general and karate teacher was booted out of the army by Hitler during World War II when the general's karate team lost a competition to the Japanese. Now the losing coach has figured out a devious means to entice the Japanese coach to re-enter his students in a show-down between competing international champions. If the ex-Nazi's team manages to beat the Japanese team in competition, the former general will be vindicated in more ways than one.
