* In the ''Series/ThirtyRock'' episode where Jack got stuck in Canada, he met an Asian meth dealer that [[HiddenDepths went to law school for a day]]: -->'''Drug Dealer:''' I was just so tightly wound that I got kicked out for karate chopping my roommate. I know. [chuckles] I'm a stereotype. All guys from Quebec are good at karate.

** Same with the Philippines and Arnis/Kali, though this is mandatory. Some schools specialize in fencing, karate, judo and taekwondo. ** Korea has similar clubs of kenpo and taekwondo, 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 taekwondo black belt.

* Invoked and mocked by Creator/MontyOum during his guest appearance (as a "martial arts instructor") on Creator/RoosterTeeth's show ''Immersion'': "As the Rooster Teeth resident Asian, I am fully qualified to teach you in the art of fruit self-defense."

* Nanase of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' is a Japanese-American who was introduced as a highly skilled [[SuperNaturalMartialArts Supernatural Martial Artist]]. In, y'know, white-boy Elliot's rather absurd dojo. Where she was the only Asian, and the sensei is black and seven feet tall and based his style on anime.... ** Averted with Tedd, however, who is also Japanese-American (he and Nanase are cousins through their mothers) and is probably the weakest member of the main case in terms of pure physical ability and knows next to nothing about combat.
to:
* Nanase This trope is discussed by Ashley in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''. She states that she has had people assume she is [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2038 "some kind of ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' magical martial artist"]] simply because she's Asian. Amusingly, the character she's talking to is actually [[SupernaturalMartialArts some kind of magical martial artist.]] The author also took the opportunity to gently mock himself over the fact that Nanase, the first explicitly Asian character he introduced was a Japanese-American who martial artist (Tedd was introduced as a highly skilled [[SuperNaturalMartialArts Supernatural Martial Artist]]. In, y'know, white-boy Elliot's rather absurd dojo. Where she was earlier, but the only Asian, and the sensei is black and seven feet tall and based his style on anime.... ** Averted with Tedd, however, who is also Japanese-American (he and Nanase are cousins through their mothers) and is probably the weakest member of the main case in terms of pure physical ability and knows next to nothing about combat. fact that he's half-Japanese wasn't made known until later).

*** Wang only becomes good enough to fight the Storms after drinking Egg Shen's magic potion. Before that he is terrified of them and doesn't even try to face them in a fight.

** The tour guide isn't a martial artist - he's a sorcerer. The maitre'd is also a pretty crummy fighter and doesn't do much of anything without a gun. As for the restaurant owner, it's pretty heavily implied that he grew up poor, possibly on the streets - [[FridgeLogic in which case he was probably forced to gain some fighting proficiency just to stay alive.]] Doesn't explain why he's good enough to stand up to the Storms, though.
