* Played with in the original ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]]'', where Japanese-American Lt. Sulu is adept at fencing, a ''European'' martial art. According to George Takei's autobiography, the writer of that episode asked him whether he'd rather use a katana or a rapier, and Takei chose the rapier to defy the stereotype.

* Lampshaded in ''Anime/CodeGeassAkitoTheExiled'', where Akito intimidates Leila's annoying and pushy older brother to drive him off, and then later tells her that it worked because everyone assumes all Japanese people know karate, ninjutsu, and the like.

* For the first three seasons of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'', Hoshi Sato is the least confident member of the crew, but in an effort to make her more of an ActionGirl she's retconned with martial arts skills which she uses against Phlox's kidnappers in Season 4. While it's quite likely Hoshi would have become more assertive after her experiences during the Xindi conflict, it would have made more sense for Hoshi to have used the more simple takedowns taught to the crew by [[SpaceMarine Major Hayes]] during this time. But [[RuleOfCool less cool]], I'm sure.

* In China the children are taught Tai Chi in their physical education class (P.E.). In Japan, they do Kendo in their physical education class (P.E.) as well. Additionally, many high schools in Japan have clubs for Kendo (fencing), Kyudo (archery), Naginata (halberd/spear), Karate, and Judo; these clubs are more like sports teams than clubs though.
** Same with the Philippines and Arnis/Kali, though this is mandatory. Some schools specialize in fencing, karate, judo and Tae Kwon Do.
** Korea has similar clubs of Kenpo and Tae Kwon Do, among other martial arts. It should also be noted that young men must enlist in the military which means a significant number of citizens have received combat training.

* The first time an Asian-American woman (Caroline Hsu) was elected Rose Queen, for the 2002 Tournament of Roses parade, all the commentators made sure to mention that she was a Tae Kwon Do black belt.

* An ''Series/TheOReillyFactor'' man-on-the-street segment filmed in New York's Chinatown and aired in October 2016 set off controversy for its use of pretty much every Asian stereotype imaginable; at one point the interviewer asks an Asian man if he knows karate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=134&v=PJmnLzw8NA4
