* In ''Webcomic/PokemonMysteryDungeonVictoryFire'', Jen, an Audino, kicks a Gengar in the stomach. When Kecleon asks what she was doing, her meek reply is [[http://victoryfire.smackjeeves.com/comics/1936427/229-we-saw-it-coming/ tae kwon do]].

* ''Series/MidsomerMurders'': A particularly silly example occurs in "Death in a Chocolate Box". Barnaby and Jones enter a room to find the elderly Lord Holm assaulting a woman. Lord Holm drops in a boxing stance:
-->'''Lord Holm:''' I used to box at Eton!\\
'''Sgt. Jones:''' Yeah? I did karate at Causton Comp! ''(immediately grapples and immobilizes Lord Holm)''

* An early ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' strip showed a mailman assuming a karate pose and warning Garfield not to attack him. But Garfield, being a cat, is much too small and moves much too fast for the mailman to land any blows, and bites and claws him repeatedly in a BigBallOfViolence, leaving the postman with AmusingInjuries.

AmusingInjuries. The last line of the strip: "And I know fast and furious."



* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'':
** In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'', Garfield unwittingly angered a bunch of dogs and tried to discourage them from harming him by telling several lies. One of them was that cats knew karate. It didn't work.
** In one strip, a mailman says this to Garfield. Garfield beats him up and notes: "And I know fast and furious."
** ''Garfield's Feline Fantasies'' featured Garfield fantasizing he was in an adventure movie, including a scene where he and the villain threaten each other:

* The striking martial arts are more common, but those who are in the Grappling Arts realize they studied an extremely old form of martial arts as Judo, Sambo, Greco-Roman Wrestling, Krav Maga, and Marine Hand to Hand Combat training have origins in Ancient Greece. The style of Judo which was taught in Glenbard East in the 1990s the instructor was from Canada as some techniques that were taught, are hard to pull off as the one that has the slang term "monkey flip" when seen in StreetFighterII. Judo spawned cousins like Karate did.

* When this is invoked; the martial artist just gives a nasty grin and slams them into the ground with a suicide throw from Judo or would sneak up and apply a rear naked choke when classmates are trying to invoke martial arts brawls. Noted in this era lot of these kind of fights happened in TheNineties. Where DeadpanSnarker starts fight with OliveGarden and tries to deliver a kick to the stomach, the latter catches this kick and foot sweeps the other leg. Two Hits ala TheBreakfastClub.

Judoka don't invoke pre-ass kicking pose as this is seen in films, as one may never know who were this in [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_celebrity_judoka Hollywood]] as Rikki Rocket [[http://ifightinpajamas.blogspot.com/2015/05/get-to-know-rikki-rockett-famous-rock.html practices the cousin]] of the 19th Century Martial art. The jokes about Judo gi and the cousin are similar to this as they're quite thick.

* Generally averted by people who actually seriously practice martial arts, because you wish to defuse not escalate the confrontation. Often the only training for official/licensed mastery, e.g. black belt, is how to avoid getting into fights. Also telling anyone that you know karate is answered by either a "Well you don't look so tough to me" taunt or an impromptu performance of FunnyBruceLeeNoises. Some trolls realize when they messed with the wrong EthnicScrappy in real life trying to stab them; they end up getting a kick to the kidneys when clinched.

clinched. Thugs in Cabrini Green try to taunt EthnicScrappy with this and the poor thug gets a suicide throw on the concrete. Judo is known as the gentle way but in a street fight this discipline is vicious when combined with Greco-Roman Wrestling; sometimes a wrestler will taunt Judoka into fighting them but up getting choked out. Where wrestling no chokes are allowed where Judo they're taught how to throw, slam and groundfight. The film Magus shows how effective the groundfight is. The throw is effective [[https://youtu.be/eXAeGR2Y84A against a punch]] if timed right, where Batman is TruthInFiction. Rule of thumb do not taunt those who took Judo; they have their own kai when doing a throw when done hard. Sometimes when the person getting thrown; the thrower ends up going down with them if it uses a hard leg sweep.

* Saikawa claimed that she's won karate competitions when she challenged Kanna in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid''. She never got the chance to show it off since the sight of Kanna's [[CrocodileTears fake crying]] destroyed her {{Tsundere}} attitude. She is shown practicing in Kanna's spin-off though.
